With so many different types of music on offer at nightclubs around São Paulo it can be difficult to choose where to go. When it comes to electronic music, it is even harder, because São Paulo has such a wide variety of clubs that cater to the tribe. However, we have chosen 7 nightclubs that are sure to hit the spot.

1. Club Royal

Located in a small street in the Vila Olimpia neighborhood, this venue has five rooms downstairs and on the upper floor a glass walled VIP area where clubbers can see the people dancing down below.

2. Over Night

One of the first nightclubs to bring electronic music to São Paulo in the late 1980s, Over Night attracted affluent young people from the wealthier neighborhoods to the lower class Mooca neighborhood on the east side of São Paulo. The club had them queuing up every weekend from 1988 to 2004 when it finally closed its doors. In 2015 it made its comeback, now in a space in the trendy Itaim Bibi neighborhood.

The Lions nightclub attracts crowds not only for its retro décor, the 3D-effect dance floor and the open patio (which offers a beautiful view of the Sé Cathedral) but also for its mega electronic music parties, every Wednesday and Saturday night. Located on the first floor of a building in one of São Paulo’s most diverse neighborhoods Republica, this club with its thick red velvet curtains and golden chandeliers, is a favorite among electronic music lovers.

6. Club 33

Since it opened in 2013 this club has been a favorite among the electronic music tribe. With special lights and state-of-the-art sound equipment it’s almost impossible to stay still at Club 33. The club also has an outdoor area where clubbers can still hear the music but also mingle.

7. Lab Club

Located in an old warehouse on Rua Augusta, in the Consolação neighborhood, the Lab Club is as popular for its electronic music parties as it is for its crazy drinks. Opened in 2010 the layout of the club allows clients to roam through different areas attached to the warehouse without missing a beat of their favorite electronic pick-up.
