Hotel Unique Av Brigadeiro Luis Antonio 4700 Sao Paulo - SP Brazil


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.

Last Word

Rooftop pool lounge attracts Sao Paulo fashion creatures for high-end socializing amongst one of the most spectacular city views you’ll ever see.
