Augusta Street, Sao Paulo

3.9
#5 of 12 in Neighborhoods in State of Sao Paulo
Neighborhood Tourist Spot
As the frenetic center of São Paulo's nightlife scene, you'll find a carnivalesque atmosphere almost every night of the week at Augusta Street. There are countless bars and nightclubs, ethnic eateries, vintage clothing stores, and live music venues in what used to be São Paulo's decaying red-light district, and almost without exception, in none of the establishments will you hear traditional Brazilian music. The scenes are dominated by local takes on punk, hip-hop, metal, indie rock and dance music. Defying Brazil’s legendary social stratification, the crowds are an eclectic mix from the city’s social spectrum, and you’ll rub shoulders with artists, hipsters, working professionals, and blue-collared folk, of all ages. When you come here expect mayhem, the good, São Paulo kind. Add Augusta Street and other attractions to your Sao Paulo trip itinerary using our Sao Paulo trip itinerary planner.
