Pink Flamingo

Fun nightlife in Copacabana

Every night from 8pm to 4am

Finally! There’s more competition for your gay dollars with the launch of Pink Flamingo. Even though, Ipanema remains the gayest neighborhood (with Galeria Cafe reigning as its most-popular nightspot), Copacabana stands as a fierce competitor with TV Bar, La Cueva, and now Pink Flamingo.

The mostly gay male crowd is pretty diverse and most visitors will feel welcome. Pink Flamingo offers an early start on nightlife (doors open at 8pm) and is frequently becoming a warm-up for the “party boys” who head over to mega-club The Week after midnight.

Pink Flamingo is open seven days a week and each night has a little something different: DJs, stripper contests, Scruff-app nights, funk music parties, and more. Drink specials are tasty and priced accordingly to the Copacabana neighborhood.

Two tips for visitors: If you stay in Ipanema, it’s fun to take a 45 minute post-sunset walk along the beach into Copacabana for early drinks at Pink Flamingo. Or, if you plan stay in Copa, get a room a couple of blocks away from Flamingo at the Hilton Copacabana. You’ll need a good night’s sleep after a night at the Flamingo.

Carolina’s Bar

Drag, strippers, and friendly vibes in downtown São Paulo

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.
