Once upon a time there was a nice place to relax in São Luis...

Nobody takes care of it. Its dirty, smells bad and its dangerous in some parts. Just go there if you want to go to a bar on a Saturday night. Its ok.

This is a dirty water lake, but it gathers local happy hour life. Nice bar, restaurant, live music and discos till late night.
