Fun House SP

Set in an actual house, Funhouse is a unique mix of house party, bar, and mini-club.  the decoration is inspired by Coney Island in New York.  Personally, I think this is super random, I’ve been to Coney Island and besides the russian baths it’s not a place I would normally hang out at, plus Funhouse looks like […]

Day party in Ilhabela: Sea Club

Day clubs are popular in cities around the word like St Tropez, Miami, Vegas, Ibiza, Marbella etc.  The concept of a day party is still new to Brazil; so if you  like day parties and happen to be in Ilhabela you are in luck! Combining beach, pool, music (from international DJ’s), gastronomy and drinks into a luxurious […]

Live music and late night pizza in Pinheiros

There are tons of restaurants lining Rua dos Pinheiros in Sao Paulo, but if you are in the mood for pizza, I recommend Fração da Pizza.  Located in a cute house, this multi space pizzeria is serving up some of the best thin crust pizza in Sao Paulo.  The house is divided into 3 spaces: […]

I’m going to put it out there and say I am one of ‘those people’ that love going to concerts.  In the last 2 weeks I have been fortunate to spend 2 weekends back to back at shows so I wanted to tell you a little bit about them and some tips on how to […]

SP: Rotating concert series in the park: Soul Set

One thing I miss about New York in the summer is going to outdoor concerts in the park (yes I am aware that there are concerts held in a number of the parks in NY but you know what I mean). Dancing and drinking outside all afternoon while jamming to your favorite band or DJ; […]

Beachfront dining and drinking at Astor

I must admit when I first moved to Rio, almost 2 years ago I had expected to see lots of cool and lively ‘beach front’ restaurants, not the case.  For those of you who have seen pictures of the beaches in Rio you will see that there are in fact a number of restaurants lining […]

It’s Always A Good Time for Champagne At The Charleston

“There comes a time in the life of every woman, the only thing that helps is a glass of Champagne.”  Bette Davis I couldn’t agree more, and I am sure YOU know the feeling too! So when that feeling hits or you feel like having a ‘classy’ evening out, head over to Charleston Champagneria in Copacabana. The […]

Sao Paulo’s ‘Central Park’

People compare Sao Paulo to New York all the time and when it comes to the parks, I have to agree.  Parque do Ibirapuera to Sao Paulo is what Hyde Park is to London or Central Park is to New York.  Ibirapuera is one of Latin America’s largest city parks, with beautifully landscaped gardens, museums, exhibition spaces, planetary […]

Zero Zero Is The Place To Party on Saturday Night

It is finally summer in Brazil, and it is HOT! Seriously, if you think New York in the summer is painfully hot (which I agree can be pretty scorching sometimes), Rio has it beat.  After hanging at the beach all Saturday how should you spend the rest of your afternoon and evening?  Head over to […]
