As part of our continuing Global Nightlife Trends series, we spoke with Lilian Varella, manager at Drosophyla in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Drosophyla, named one of the top 10 most popular bars in Brazil by Yahoo!, is a welcome respite from the surrounding metropolis where regulars and tourists come to take in Sao Paulo culture and ambience.

Tell us about your bar? How would you describe it?

It’s a very beautiful bar, in contemporary baroque style, offering a mix of Brazil and the world. A place to talk, to listen to music… Low lights, long sofas. There’s no name on the door – but Drosophyla is a place to be and to feed on the local atmosphere. There is also an oriental garden in the back.
