A trashy good time for those who consider “trashy” a compliment.
Rua Frederico Abranches 29
São Paulo, Brazil
Wed – Sun 11PM until Closing
While big cities like San Francisco, New York, and Paris try to make trash chic, only São Paulo can succeed with fun little bars like Bar Fama.
The infamous Bar Fama is located on the outer rim of the city’s gay Largo do Arouche section. Use the short walk to the bar to prepare yourself for what you will find: Lopsided tables, a tiny stage that appears to be on the verge of collapse, and a “dark room” that seems to have been made by knocking through a wall with a sledgehammer.
The formula of “drag, drinks, and dancers” isn’t broke and Bar Fama doesn’t bother trying to fix it. Throughout the evening, strippers and drag performers do their thing. The patrons of Bar Fama love watching the shows, sharing bottles of beer, and interacting with each other in the dark room during musical breaks.
