This medium-sized, unpretentious, and charming place is one of the best live venues in São Paulo to hear great musicians play samba. And although it's renowned for its samba, it devotes much of its schedule to MPB and the more playful samba-rock, an offshoot of samba that is notably danced in pairs, complete with salsa-like turns, unlike the solo steps that accompany more traditional samba. Get close, dance, and smell the sweat – or sit out back and have dinner. There’s live music Tuesday-Sunday nights, but Friday nights with the excellent samba-rock combo Clube de Balanço, are recommended.
