Straight-laced, yet gay-friendly, hotel next door to the bear and daddy bars.
Located at ground zero for coroas (Portuguese slang for older guys) and ursos (bears) the Bourbon São Paulo Business Hotel is an easy choice for gay travelers. The management runs a tight ship, and officially it’s a business hotel. However, like most businesses on Avenida Vieira de Carvalho, they are gay-friendly.
This does not mean they are slut-friendly. If you decide to bring someone home from neighboring Soda Pop Bar or Caneca de Prata, be prepared to run into the guest policy. They may ask for ID from your guest and/or add an extra-person fee to your bill. Consider it a small inconvenience required to keep everyone at the Bourbon safe … including yourself.
The “deluxe” rooms are a bit more, but are newly-renovated and worth the extra expense. Wi-fi and breakfast are included in most deals. Get more info and view a photo gallery of the interior and exterior of the Burbon using the button below.
