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 Brahma beer and check out the scene. The Jardins offers upmarket bars for a more mature and LGBT crowd. Head to the bar at the Fasano for the best Caipirinha you are likely to taste anywhere. Itaim Bibi and Vila Oliímpia are where you will find the trendy up and coming clubs. Wednesday and Thursday nights are very popular.
