The maritime theme at this gorgeous Bixiga club has fished aesthetic inspiration from the nautical stripes of Jean Paul Gaultier, and the tattoos of Sailor Jerry, with references to Atlantis and Yemanja thrown in for good measure.
The airy space, with a large dancefloor flanked by two mezzanines, is decked out with blue walls and mirrored bars, and topped by a high ceiling, encrusted with shells and flashing lights that lend something of a glam ’80s feel. Two giant palms, one inside and one in the smoking area, add a tropical touch.
Among the house drinks, the Sailor (with white rum, mint, maraschino liqueur and soda), served by bartenders dressed in character, is a good way to get in the mood.
