Still under the tourist radar, Vila Madalena is a hidden bohemian gem in São Paulo.
Vila Madalena’s main appeal lies in its easy-going artistic charm and thriving nightlife . You can find plenty of 24-hour entertainment venues, live samba bars, open air restaurants, sidewalk cafes, and creative boutiques.
While primarily a residential neighborhood, many cultural and creative businesses have begun setting up shop.
Vila Madalena is best suited for young professionals, young couples, small families, students, artists and intellectuals.
