Savassi is the 'nice' end of bh, with shops, restaurants and patio savassi shopping mall at one end. at night the streets are filled with tables as the restaurants fill up, creating a festive atmosphere. while a nice area, still avoid wearing your fancy watch around the streets and keep your bag close.

I don't know where the name plaça comes from. This is just an intersection between a couple of avenue downtown. Close to bars and a big mall.

This place is a wonderful place to come across nice bars in the city. Also, it provides a treat for the gastronomia. But avoid the place during events since it gets overcrowded, unless that is your thing.

This is a small area with lots of eat out places. Most music concerts in town are performed here with live bands available. Just look out for the dates when these bands are performing. This area also have a considerable number of shops to look around too

Cleaned up and given some visual improvements to an area that otherwise blended in too well with it's surroundings. It draws people to hang out a bit so not the best place late at night.

Young unemployed. Maybe some beggars.But still good and old restaurants that rely open until dawn. Worth checking out, but not alone.

Nice place, with stores that will carry good brands and good restaurants in the area. The police presence is almost inexistent. If you go, use plain clothing and no jewelry. Do like the locals do and walk like the locals.

Traditional place in town, but nowadays became just another square with a few commerce around. Have to mention there isn't no parking spaces after the last 'refitment' they made, building fountains and adding some benches.
