Numero bar was built on a very narrow and long strip of land in the Jardins area, in São Paulo. A walkway runs from the street through a hallway/tunnel fully covered in mirrors, leading to the main hall. At the entrance, the ceiling is extremely low and the view of the hall – cascaded – is unimpeded. Progressing towards the back, the height gradually increases: descending levels feature comfortable lounging areas, under a ceiling that extends on a continually rising surface. The low and indirect lighting throughout lends the ambience a pleasant and cozy atmosphere, perfect for a relaxing drink at the end of the day, accompanied by friends and to the sound of good music. A room reserved for private functions takes up the lower floor and, contrary to the main hall, features a low ceiling all along, with couches placed in the central axis of the room, built-in overhead lighting throughout, and walls completely covered by antique posters or poster fragments.
