Options for fun never lack in the four corners of the city. In each district of the city, it is possible to find a scenario and an offering of very different culture, shopping, gastronomy and night life. Check out some places where it is worth to dedicate one whole day of tour. With diverse cultural centers, the region of the famous Avenida Paulista is one of the busiest and well known of the gay public. Aside from all attractions of the  city’s icon avenue, its surroundings are also filled with fun. The scene of the Jardins district, especially along Rua da Consolação, has some bars, like Bar da Dida.

 

But the real excitement moved to the other side of Paulista and went down to Rua Augusta, finding shelter in the region known as Baixo Augusta. In this area of the city, it is common to see people of the same sex walking hand in hand in any afternoon and tolerance to diversity is made present. The region of Rua Augusta has other attractions, like  stores and cultural centers. And at this gay spot, you are going to find diverse bars, parties and restaurants. There are several: Bofetada Club, Barão de ItararéFrey, Caos, Z Carniceria, without counting Rua Augusta itself. Both during the day and at night, an unpretentious walk through its blocks with the certainty of finding a place that pleases you is worth the while.

 

Going further toward the city’s Downtown we find another region with concentration of São Paulo GLS offering. More traditional and old, Rua Dr. Vieira de Carvalho, for years presents options for the gay public, differentiating
itself from the rest byattending to the most diverse tastes and styles. Here, it is possible to find the night out of barbies’s electronic music, the small bars frequently visited by an older public and even discotheque for dancing ballroom music. Cantho, Freedom ClubABC Bailão, Queen, Soda Pop… Indeed, it is a region for you to walk and find your preferred place. And what is cool of all these is that it is even possible to appreciate the Downtown’s architectureand go through diverse nearby tourist spots: Edifício Itália, Praça da República, Viaduto do Chá, Theatro Municipal, among others.
