Consolação lies between the old historical centre of
the city and busy Paulista Avenue. It’s surrounded by
the fancy Higienópolis neighbourhood, which makes it a
very diverse place. The nightlife along Augusta Street
offers visitors a variety of options to dine, dance
and be entertained. Roosevelt Square, Consolação's
main meeting point, is surrounded by fringe theaters
and has become a popular skateboarding area. Right
