Sao Paulo Gay Dance Clubs

Sao Paulo Gay Dance Clubs

Want to find out where all those hot Brazilian men go clubbing in Sao Paulo? This city has gay clubs that rival anything you might find in London or New York.

Consolação

Consolação and the surrounding area contains most of Sao Paulo’s gay clubs. A lot of venues are located on Frei Caneca (known as “gay” Caneca), the city’s main gay street – the place to be and be seen if you’re a scene queen. It’s also great for shopping during the day.

ABC Bailão is a popular gay club and it’s particularly popular with the more mature crowd. It’s something of a mecca for daddy chasers.

Over 50s are even given a discounted rate!

The vibe is fun and laid back. You’ll find less attitude than in Club Yacht.

The DJs play a range of music from classic Brazilian pop to Madonna. This club can get a little cruise-y.

Located in the Frei Caneca (some say “gay” Caneca) district, Aloka is the main nightclub in the area. Centrally located by the swanky Higienópolis neighbourhood, this is a good choice if you don’t want to venture too far into the outskirts of the city.

Doors open at midnight and the place starts to get busy a couple of hours later.

Here you’ll find a 20 and 30-something crowd.

If you’re around the Caneca district in the early hours then this is the place to be.

Barra Funda

The legendary club The Week is right by Barra Funda. Blue Space is another great gay club in Barra Funda but it’s only open at weekends.

November 2021: The Week is closed until further notice.

The Week is Sao Paulo’s most popular gay club.

It’s big, brash, hedonistic and expensive. Here you’ll find some insanely hot, scantily clad guys and girls partying the night away.

The Week rivals and ultimately surpasses any gay club in New York or London.

You can also visit The Week’s sister club in Rio.

As the pics and video demonstrate, this is not a low key joint. So, go hard or go home.

The Week is opened on Saturdays only.

R. João Adolfo, 126 - República , São Paulo


November 2021: This venue has been reported permanently closed.

Cantho Dance Club is a popular gay venue in downtown Sao Paulo. Here you’ll find a range of “types” from muscle marys to bears and even a smattering of twinks.

The DJ will be playing a mix of pop music from vintage to modern tracks. You’ll hear tribal house on Sundays.

This is very much an after-hours venue. The area can be a little sketchy so maybe book a taxi directly to the venue. When you’re inside you won’t have any problems.

The club can fit around 800 people.
