"The street to be seen on" is Padre Chagas. Full of great restaurants and expensive shops, it's the place to strut your stuff. We lived a few blocks from Padre Chagas and walked there often for leisurely Sunday afternoons, Friday or Saturday night dinner, parties etc. We felt safe in the area, and always enjoyed ourselves when on Padre Chagas. We are not in the "upper class" but managed just fine nonetheless. Great for "people watching" from one of the outdoor patios, especially those on the second floor overlooking this busy street. Pretty at Christmastime with lights strung across the street.

To the extent Porto Alegre has a facsimile of Sao Paulo's Rua Oscar Freyre or, let's say, Rodeo Drive, this is it. Upscale commerce, bars, restaurants, etc. in the city's leafiest neighborhood. It's short -- only 3-4 blocks long -- but a nice way to spend a lazy afternoon people-watching and having a little something to eat or drink. If you're expecting the Bund or Ginza or Shinjuku or Shibuya, you'll be disappointed at how small and comparatively modest it is, but it's still as good -- at least in a commercial sense -- as Porto Alegre gets.

The "Padre Chagas" street continue to be very popular among the locals in the city of "Porto Alegre", capital of the Brazilian Southern state "Rio Grande do Sul".

The area is popular because in around 3 blocks and 2 or 3 transversal streets concentrates a huge number of very charming cafes, restaurants, bars, as well as alternative little shops for souvenirs, clothing, shoes, wine, tea and so on.

So it is very agreeable just to walk along "Padre Chagas" street and stop by for example the little "Cafe do Porto" for a coffee and a good pastry or to go later for a happy hour with friends to the Dado Beer.

Its a good program for getting to know how locals spend their afternoons or nights.

This is the trendiest street in Porto Alegre's night, the place to be and to be seen, to walk up and down, go to a pub, have lunch or diner, drink and meet beautiful people. Sixty years ago, this neighbourhood was the finest place to live in town. Now, many old houses have been converted into pubs, bars, shops and restaurants.
