Any concert here is a must see/watch - the place is very well designed. Good parking and easy to go by public transportation but since all concerts happen at night I suggest taxi/uber

Excellent music! Very good coffee shop! Easy to park as there is a parking lot! If you want to go by taxi there is a taxi stand right outside ! It is a pleasant experience if you like music and good coffee!

Beautiful place, great music but utterly disorganized. Staff is untrained and rude, and the place is poorly signed.

Classical music is not a top of mind subject in Brazil. Even though, the megalopolis Sao Paulo homes one of the best orchestra house in the world. If you are a music lover you will want to be there.
