When I go Downtown I just want to enjoy myself, be around people. And at Bar da Onça I can do it! It’s in Copan Building, an absolute symbol of São Paulo.
I fell that at the same time S.P has been turning real ugly with the passing of time and all those horrendous business buildings, it became rich in opportunities to create things that oppose to that, and this bar is an example of that resistance movement.
It’s so much fun! I like to go there knowing that it is really a whole day out, that I’ll be for a long time sitting there at a table on the outside section, in the sidewalk, on a beautiful day just chatting with whoever I meet there.
And, surely, eating tasty food! It’s simple food, typical from São Paulo. And yet what is brought to my attention is the movement of Downtown, always very amusing.
It used to be more common to find people I know around there in the past, but now I find all sorts of people, from those who go attracted by a nice magazine review up to hipster folks.
