Shopping JK Iguatemi
(Must See / Shopping)
Every luxury good you might want is in this shopping temple. Impressive!
Where to stay Tivoli São Paulo
Design hotel with lovely ground floor poolside terrace. Decent prices, especially if booked through tablethotels.com
. Excellent Spanish restaurant on the 23rd floor with amazing view! Hotel Emiliano
Likely to be the best in town. Right on the fancy Rua Oscar Freire. Amazing service. Cosy rooms with design furniture.
Sunset Vila Maladena
Cool hip/art/designer neighborhood. Come in the evening and try some typical boteco brasseries and the picanha beef!
Food Mr. Baker
Into the Itaim area, this little corner bakery does great breakfast and brunch. Don't miss the açaí healthy juice! Chou
Cute little outdoor restaurant (covered for when it rains) with a perfect candle-lit atmosphere for a tête-a-tête or small group Mani
Very laid back ambience, within a quiet atmosphere. A healthy menu, hosting original variations of well-known dishes as well as house specialties that will make it worth your visit! Le Manjue Bistrô
Located in Vila Nova Conceicao area. Charming, with dim lights, fancy/trendy atmosphere. The perfect spot for a date!
At Night Bar Número
Fashionable bar on 2 floors with trendy atmosphere. Best to come with locals: you need to know your way in at the door... Hotel Unique
Not only interesting for the architecture. The bar/restaurant on the rooftop has one of the best views in Sao Paulo.
And, just in case, some of the rooms are really amazing !
