Augusta Street, Sao Paulo

3.8
#5 of 12 in Neighborhoods in State of Sao Paulo
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. Put Augusta Street into our Sao Paulo journey builder website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • The street is decades old, and used to be the most famous in town, with plenty of high-end shops, but not anymore. Things get worse as you go upwards, towards Avenida Paulista, and downwards past it. ...  more »
