Ó do Borogodó

Samba in Pinheiros, Vila Madalena & Around

One of the best spots in town for live samba, chorinho (informal instrumental music) and pagode (popular samba music).

Uneven floors and cramped space notwithstanding, the combination of serious musicianship on display here with cheap caipirinhas and rump-shaking, sweat-soaked crowds of sexy revelers equals a surefire good time.
