Sao Paulo is the largest city in Brazil and with more than 20 million people calling its greater urban area home, the city's nightlife is as vibrant as it is diverse. Most of the best clubs can be found in Vila Olimpia in the west of the city, which is so busy on weekends it's not uncommon to see traffic jams snaking down the Avenue Faria Lima into the early hours of the morning. Vila Madelena is another bustling nightlife area and is home to a wide array of bars, cafes and bohemian-inspired galleries, as is nearby Pinheiros.
If you're after nightlife closer to the city centre the area between Praca da Republica and Largo do Arouche offers an eclectic range of bars and restaurants which attract hordes of revellers after dark.
