Biroska Bar

Biroska is a typicall Brazilian bar, fulled of characteristical people from most of parts of Brazil. It's a place to go any day but specially on Mondays (busiest day) to have some beers and dance.

Opened in 1971, this bar became famous for been an "Artist's House". A place where could be possible to meet brazilian pop stars. This fact came up because on 80's, there was an agreement between the bar and the RCA Records, so famous artists such as Raul Seixas, Paulo Coelho, Antonio Marcos, Sydney Magal and many others, were easily found on the tables.
Later on, some artists from the country music (sertanejos) began their career in Sao Paulo, playing on the Biroska's stage, such as Zezé di Camargo & Luciano and Leandro & Leonardo. The walls of the bar bearing almost the history of Brazilian music. Tables, photographs and posters of various performers and composers, mixed with pieces of old clothes, objects of famous personalities and newspaper cuttings give the tone to the decor.

The bar, now, receive all kinds of people. The live music starts at 7pm and goes till last customer. Upstairs there is a place to dance, which opens at 11pm. The house also has a VIP area. It is place reserved for those who want to get a break from the noise.
