The bar that is located in the 30th floor of a hotel is a good option for couples and/or friends in a happy hour. The city view is beautiful but the service and the menu is a little disappointing. We ordered a fondue, which was good, but we had to ask for a plate to eat it. I would classify... More

I was really disappointed by this place. Service is below average and the view is not as good as other sky bars in the city. The place itself is not bad, but it needs improvement.

The bar is a little pricy, but has a great view especially when dark. The wines are good but a good glass of red wine is about R40. I also had something to eat and the meat was good, but baked only a little bit too long. Had a nice evening with my colleagues

We were staying in the neighbourhood and found this place by accident. Fantastic view of the city, food is fine. There's an outside terras with an excellent view. In the evening there's a guy playing greatest hits on the piano and sings a bit, which is nice. If you have a few days to spend in Sâo Paulo, go there.

Excellent view of the city, best to sit outside in the terrace, service was fast and beer was cold. They didn't have many beer choices, particularly national ones. But the one they had was great. We went at 7pm on a weekend, there was plenty of space available, but soon there started to come a lot of people, I think... More

Have stayed at the Transamerica Prime twice now and would highly recommend the View Bar. Great views, great food and a super ambience with stunning views.

It's worth checking. Nice drinks and ok snacks. The only disadvantage was the hassle with the check where some extras were included without informing.

Staying in Jardins

Neighbourhood Profile
Located just below important Paulista Avenue, Jardins is the junction of four smaller neighbourhoods: Jardim Paulista, Jardim América, Jardim Europa and Jardim Paulistano. It is an upper-class area, offering a variety of things to do, including shopping, museums and parks. The neighbourhood is well known for “Oscar Freire”– the most luxurious street in the city, packed with high-end boutiques. In Jardins you will also find a trendy museum, São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound (MIS), which people often line up for hours to visit. If green space is what you're after, take time to relax at Trianon Park, a refuge in the heart of Paulista Avenue.
