Sala Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo

#50 of 402 in Nightlife in Sao Paulo
The Júlio Prestes Cultural Center, which is located in the Júlio Prestes Train Station in the old north central section of the city of São Paulo, Brazil, was inaugurated on July 9, 1999. The building has been totally restored and renovated by the São Paulo State Government, as part of the downtown revitalization in that city. It houses the Sala São Paulo, which has a capacity of 1498 seats and is the home of the São Paulo State Symphonic Orchestra (OSESP). It is a venue for symphonic and chamber presentations and has been designed according to state of the art standards, comparable to the Boston Symphony Hall, Musikverein in Vienna and the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.

Renovation began in November 1997, but the first steps were taken in 1995. Governor Mario Covas visualized the Julio Prestes space as ideal for symphonic presentations and because OSESP did not have a permanent home.

  • One of my favorite activities in Sao Paulo. Besides the great program that is offered all year long, the place itself is a masterpiece. Very elegant, and the acoustic is equal to very other few places. The surrounding is not so nice, so driving or taking a ride is more recommended if you are not used to walking in downtown Sao Paulo.
  • One of the most important concert halls in the world in the middle of the city. There is unfortunately great contrasts in São Paulo which might lead people to opt to go by taxi from Luz Station to the venue, despite the distance (7’ walk).
