Drag, strippers, and friendly vibes in downtown São Paulo
Avenida Duque de Caixas 158,
Sao Paulo, SP Brazil view map >
Open Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sunday
Within one year, this new addition to the Largo do Arouche gayborhood has become the hot spot for drag performances, strippers, and even on occasion, live musicians.
Drag mistresses of ceremony Kylie Hickmann and Cris Tower keep the energy friendly and the entertainers moving. Carolina’s Bar is popular with groups who often come before midnight to drink and have a good time with friends at the tables surrounding the stage.
Fans of Bar Queen‘s playfully erotic stage shows will find many familiar faces (and other body parts) at Carolina’s nightly parties since performers often work both bars.
Carolina’s is a safe bet if you’re visiting downtown Sao Paulo and are looking for some good drinks, sexy go-go boys, and great time.
