We were holidaying with our 2 kids who are in their twenties. After reading all the reviews on how vibey this area is supposed to be, we booked our hotel nearby to enjoy some of the action, but were horribly disappointed.Things may have been a bit busier later at night, but it was very flat during the day and also...

Visited Savassi with some friends after we saw the match Colombia-Greece at the stadium, and i found this place really interesting. It has a lot of bars, restaurants, stores, live music, even some stands with handcrafts. A place to visit and enjoy thew night live.

Besides from the malls, Savassi is where the young people normally go shopping and stroll. There are good restaurants and bars around and it's near Liberty Square, with lots of great musuems.

Savassi square or like the locals prefer to say only Savassi, is one of the the points in Belo Horizonte! Lots of fashion stores, or Boutiques as the prefer to call them, the area was recently redecorated to receive the tourists for the world cup. There you will find beautiful people walking and shopping, and the perfect gift to bring... More

It´s my favorite area in the city. It´s one of the few places in Belo Horizonte that you can feel safe. There are a lot of bars and restaurants around. You definetly gonna find something that you enjoy there.

Live music in open area, most days of the week. Very nice place to chill on a Saturday late afternoon, with live music and a few beers. Highly recommended. Beware, they don't warn you that there is a Rs 10.00 pp cover charge.

This used to be the cultural and comercial fancy place in BH, but over the years it has lost its charm. Recent renovation made the place look like an airport runway... the pedestrian streets are nice but at night are turned into a big bar with plastic tables on the sidewalks, not what I would call fancy....
