Drinking & Nightlife

Diamantina's nightlife hub is the lively cluster of bars with streetside seating along Rua Quitanda and Beco da Tecla, around the corner from the cathedral. On Friday evenings from 6pm onwards, visit Diamantina's Mercado Municipal for Sexta Nossa, a community happy hour where locals unwind with drinks and regional food, accompanied by live samba, blues and chorinho (informal instrumental music).
