The Hotel Unique rises out of nowhere, located in a fortified residential enclave near the Botanical Garden and Jardins. The hotel's exterior is iconic, a semi-cylindrical architectural structure rising nine stories with round windows cement landscaping. <br /><br />Models dressed in tight denim and airy linen pass through a cavernous lobby of high-ceilings and glassy walls to a tight elevator buzzing with electronic tunes. The elevator opens to a creamy hallway of illuminated onyx leading to the glass-enclosed eatery and pool lounge framed by some of the most exquisite city views in Sao Paulo. The lounge is composed of a central seating area of ultra-suede sofas with club chairs and long bar overlooking the restaurant and outdoor pool. <br /><br />By day the restaurant is abuzz with dining businessmen that receded to a quiet happy hour around 6pm. The bar doesn't get going again till around 9pm as deejays pump lounge tracks throughout the restaurant and bar to a pack-house of bronzed locals looking to swap air kisses and flirtatious small talk. <br /><br />
Don’t arrive before 9pm or you’ll be sitting in an empty bar watching shabby Westerners dine on wordy gourmet food.
Rooftop pool lounge attracts Sao Paulo fashion creatures for high-end socializing amongst one of the most spectacular city views you’ll ever see.
