Terraço Italia has the best view in town. The piano bar is great and always has always jazz bands playing there. Been there many times.

What I appreciate the most there is the view from São Paulo at night! Last time I've been to the bar a helicopter was flying so close to the window that I got a little bit worried! Oh, yes, I rather the bar then the restaurant!

Great view of São Paulo skyline, plus an amazing service and piano playing in the background. We had a candlelight dinner in the Salão São Paulo and the food was awesome, perfectly matching strong flavors with softer tastes. Afterwards we enjoyed a blues band from the US at the piano bar (A MUST GO, TOTALLY AWESOME).

I went for lunchtime. very good view of the city at the 41st floor. Service was good and fast. Food was fine. At lunch you can get a prix fix menu that allows a fair trade.

This skyhigh bar in the middle of the Paulista concrete jungle will make you feel no less than an honorary member of a James Bond villian organization. The tasty drinks combined with the bird's perspective of the city skyline upweighs the 30 Reais entrance fee - end of discussion. It is an astonishing experience to visit this exclusive bar, which...

It's a Kind of old fashion Place but with amazing city views from the skyline. This Penthouse Restaurant is a traditional place to go , mainly at night. Several years ago it was one of the places to propose and toast the event over the city.

We have visited the place after a few hours sightseeing of Sao Paulo. We went for a drink to the Cocktail Bar (which is located above the restaurant). Although there is an entrance fee there we were so impressed by the view that we actually spend there more than three hours. The view of Sao Paulo you have there is... More

If you're looking for an elegant and romantic setting, this is the place. However, you better be willing to pay a hefty price for the experience because you're paying far more for the atmosphere than the food. Even though the service was good, as an executive chef, I have to say that the food was mediocre at best. My seafood... More

Staying in Republica

Neighborhood Profile
Part of the historical center of São Paulo, República was once a fancy residential area. República Square holds a craft and food fair every weekend, right by the subway entrance. Nearby, one of the neighborhood’s main attractions is the Italian Building, where you can see the city from the 42nd floor. The Copan Building also deserves a close look, with 1,160 apartments and a huge floor area that inspired filmmakers and other artists. To get the feeling of São Paulo in the beginning of the 1900s, visit the Municipal Theatre – you will be amazed by its architecture. The area also features several galleries. República is a great area to explore during daytime, but use caution if visiting alone at night.
