Amazing JaZz night in Sao Paulo Madaleine Bar

Madaleine was opened on July 2009. Addressed on the  legendary bohemian suburb Vila Madalena, its name couldn’t be  different.  Madeleine brings on its proposal a menu that focuses on the preparation of dishes, snacks and pizzas in a wood stove, and a selected musical program, very focused on jazz. Among the cuisine highlights are: the raw tomato confit (bread with olive oil, burrata and Salumeria) and croute (fillet coated in foie gras, mushrooms and Camembert). The pizzas are prepared on a oval format, and the flavor begins with the dough, which may be wine-red pepper and fennel flavor, among many others. One of the Madaleine’s owner is an architect and did the project of the bar, using the rest of the material left after the rebuilding. The bar has handcrafted furniture inspired on the colonial style. The structure offers a main hall with a large bar, a mezzanine and a balcony landscaping the Vila Madalena suburb. It’s a worth visit!

When: Tuesday to Saturday, from 19h30pm till the last client. Band on the stage: Tuesday to Thursday at 9pm; Friday and Saturday at 10pm; Sunday at 8pm.
Phone: (11) 2936-0616
How much: now this is tricky coz we called before going and they said there is no minimum charge but once i was there i found we had to pay 17R$ cover for the band and 50R$ consumption per person

The weather’s doing its best to convince us otherwise, but the Holidays really are just around the corner, and boy do we have some treats for you this season. We’ve joined forces with British Airways to pair discounted flights to ten European cities with top pads, including London’s gleaming new Corinthia Hotel and the Dylan, a canal-side gem in Amsterdam. Over in South Africa we’re checking off city, savannah and Sauvignon Blanc on a 10-day trip with Great Safaris that starts in Cape Town. In the US, we’re giving Las Vegas’ refined side a look-see at the non-gaming THEhotel at Mandalay Bay, gawping NYC’s skyline from scenester the Mondrian Soho, and doing Florence the luxe way at Marignolle Relais. Home for the Holidays? Maybe next year

Las Vegas’s Hotel-Within-a-Hotel

Mandalay Bay has everything you could ask of Vegas: a tropical-themed casino, lots of restaurants and a happening pool scene. Close to the action but more subdued, the non-gaming THEhotel – located in a connected tower – feels like a boutique property in spite of its 1,117 rooms, with its own art-filled lobby and check-in, full-service spa (the Bathhouse) and top-floor see-and-be-seen lounge, Mix in Las Vegas.

Berlin’s Glamorous Side

Jutting out like a modern monolith, Andel’s Hotel towers on a street corner like a stoic mayor surveying his city. With 557 rooms covering 14 levels, the property has a full-service spa and wellness center, a glass-walled, top-floor showing off its sprawling city on all sides and contemporary rooms promising a stylish stay and much-needed respite from edgy, gritty Berlin.

Pagodas and Private Pools on the Riviera Maya

Secluded from the main stretch of the Riviera Maya, the Banyan Tree Mayakoba mixes Asian and Mayan touches in subtle, unexpected ways. Pagodas and private pools in every villa meet in terrain that could just as easily be Phuket: luxurious, light and designed to cater to all the senses.


Santorini Grace, Greece

Located at  Imerovigli on the northwest coast of the Cyclades island of Santorini, Greece, Grace Santorini  is earning a reputation among Santorini’s luxury boutique hotels as THE place to dine.

The surroundings are, of course, divine with the azure ocean, the white-washed buildings, the dark and barren cliffside creating a Greek paradise.  Views over the Caldera Basin and Skaros Rock surround the hotel.

The year-old alfresco show kitchen is presided over by chef Sprios Agious who’s gained new influences during his work over the winter with Michel Roux Junior of Le Gavroche, London, and Jonathan Cartwright of the White Barn Inn, in Maine, USA. Grace Santorini is part of the Grace Hotels Group. We only feature hotels we have personally experienced – and we have not stayed at Grace Santorini –  so we are not sure what the rest of the hotel is like. The reputation of the food has come to our attention from several sources.
