São Paulo State Symphonic Orchestra
An evening of music begins at Sala de Concerto São Paulo, where the moveable ceiling is designed to adapt to performances, giving the hall a worldwide reputation for extraordinary acoustics. The neoclassical building was built in the 1930s as a railway station. Today, it is home to the highly regarded São Paulo State Symphonic Orchestra.
São Paulo Gastronomy
Paulistas typically dine at 9pm, so the city’s culinary offering is in full swing after the concert. Restaurants are entertainment for Paulistas, who love food and drive chefs to ever greater heights. São Paulo is home to one of the world’s Best Female Chefs, Brazilian Helena Rizzo, from the minimalist and original restaurant Maní. Paulistas tend to dress up, so get ready for an elegant and entertaining evening.
For after dinner music, Sampa is always open. Try the award-winning Madeleine Jazz Bar which serves jazz of the best quality in a charming environment, or Casa de Francisca for local samba, Chorinho and bossa nova rhythms. For more adventurous sounds try, Jazz nos Fundos in the bohemian Vila Madalena.
