Part of the "Pampulha Architectural Complex" that brought architect Oscar Niemeyer international acclaim and popularity in the 1940s, Casa Do Baile was designed as a small restaurant/dance hall, built on its own artificial island. It includes a circular block from which a free-form marquee unravels, following the contour of the island. After the building’s completion, this free-form design became wildly popular in Brazilian architecture, adding to Niemeyer’s already enviable global reputation. The site is close to the Pampulha Art Museum and is a must-see for all lovers of modern architecture. Don’t leave before walking down to the nearby lagoon, where you can take photographs of this key cultural area and its important landmark.

Casa Do Baile Reviews
A vista da lagoa é bonita, embora os arredores estejam mal cuidados. A casa do baile em si, pouco oferece. Pode ser descrita como um salão vazio com algumas poucas obras em exposição. more »The view of the lagoon is beautiful, although the surroundings are poorly cared for. The prom house itself offers little. It can be described as an empty salon with a few works on display.
Lugar para contemplar a arquitetura da Casa do Baile de Oscar Niemeyer, saber sua história, e apreciar a lagoa da Pampulha. more »Place to contemplate the architecture of the House of the homecoming of Oscar Niemeyer, know its history, and enjoy the lagoon of Pampulha.
The architecture is very interesting, the surroundings are very well kept and the view of the lake is very picture worthy. The cafe is a little pricey but good, but the most interesting thing is the acoustic of the room. Stand in the center of the circle and speak or sing and your voice is amplified.
One of the four architectural works of Oscar Nieyemer, making up the Conjunto Moderno da Pampulha (Pampulha Modern Ensemble), located in Belo Horizonte, Brazil and recognized in 2016 by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site under the category Patrimônio Cultural(Cultural Heritage).
