Great place and great view

Excellent view of the city, best to sit outside in the terrace, service was fast and beer was cold. They didn't have many beer choices, particularly national ones. But the one they had was great. We went at 7pm on a weekend, there was plenty of space available, but soon there started to come a lot... read more

It's worth checking. Nice drinks and ok snacks. The only disadvantage was the hassle with the check where some extras were included without informing.

We can't really review the actual service, because we were totally mistreated at the lobby. They made us take an elevator to the last floor and said we'd be welcomed by a person. Didn't happen. Asked us to go upstairs in the emergency exit and the door upstairs was locked. We couldn't even get in the restaurant. We left because... More

The views were the highlight there, definitely worth sitting outside to enjoy it. Live piano player was a bliss creating great atmosphere. On the other hand drinks were subpar - maybe because we were expecting a bit more from the cocktail list, which had only standard offering like caipirinhas, bloody mary, sex on the beach etc. The only good things...

... But too many missed opportunities to satisfy the guest. Cold interior, outside with slow service. Something about the flow and cool coziness is missing. If someone takes it on and knows how to manage a sky bar then this could be a great place. The drinks were good.

It is a fancy bar to enjoy SP view. Located near Paulista avenue I recommend to go in the evening to appreciate day, sunset and night. With friends or in a date, It's a perfect option ti happy hour with drinks and appertizes.

Staying in Jardins

Neighborhood Profile
Jardins
Located just below important Paulista Avenue, Jardins is the junction of four smaller neighborhoods: Jardim Paulista, Jardim América, Jardim Europa and Jardim Paulistano. It is an upper-class area, offering a variety of things to do, including shopping, museums and parks. The neighborhood is well known for “Oscar Freire”– the most luxurious street in the city, packed with high-end boutiques. In Jardins you will also find a trendy museum, São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound (MIS), which people often line up for hours to visit. If green space is what you're after, take time to relax at Trianon Park, a refuge in the heart of Paulista Avenue.
