activities to enjoy between the Carnaval “blocos” in São Paulo


Curve lines

Av. Ipiranga, 200

Copan’s unmistakable style has turned the building into a symbol of downtown São Paulo. Take advantage of the time between ‘blocos’ to visit its top floor.” The free “tours” accompanied by the janitor are held from Monday to Friday, at 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.


To kill your hunger

Av. Ipiranga, 200 – shops 27 and 29

“Accompanying the ‘blocos’ requires a lot of energy. Bar da Dona Onc¸a serves some amazing Brazilian food, with lots of soups – which I love. Among my favorites dishes are the ground beef sandwiches.”


Open street

Elevado Presidente Joa~o Goulart

“If you want to take a break from the crowds, go to the Minhoca~o, which is closed off to cars at night and on Sundays and holidays. You can take a walk, go jogging, biking, skating or skateboarding there.”


Cult bohemia

Prac¸a Franklin Roosevelt, s/n

“A hangout for a number of urban tribes, skateboarders, clowns, circus performers, actors and bohemians gather at Prac¸a Roosevelt. It’s the ideal place for people who want to take in some culture during Carnaval.”


Bar at the plaza

Prac¸a Dom Jose´ Gaspar, 42

“We always go to Paribar, located at Prac¸a Dom Jose´ Gaspar, after the ‘bloco.’ The food is great and the bar blends in with the plaza, creating a laidback atmosphere.”
