Canto da Ema

Canto da Ema is a beloved disco club and the best place in São Paulo to dance forró, a hip-swivelling, musical genre from the northeastern region of Brazil. But if you don't know any of the moves, don't worry, they do offer forró classes for beginners. There's also a bar and a restaurant with typical food from the northeast.

Bars & Nightlife

The hometown of electro-hipster group CSS, São Paulo's eclectic nightlife is the best in Brazil. Bela Vista has plenty of live music and draws a mixed crowd, while Vila Madalena and adjoining Pinheiros are full of trendy, bohemian nightspots and clubs where you can enjoy a nice cold beer and check out the scene. The Jardins district offers upmarket bars for a more mature as well as the LGBT crowd. Head to the bar at the Fasano Hotel for the best Caipirinha you are likely to taste anywhere. Itaim Bibi and Vila Olímpia are where you will find the trendy up-and-coming clubs.
