A city of entertainment, music lovers and night-owls will love Porto Alegre's nightlife and lively music scene including afternoon jazz sessions, Cidade Baixa's discos and bars and the Centro Cultural Usina do Gasômetro; a unique 1920s power station converted into a cinema, theater, art galleries, café, and bookshop. Porto Alegre's economy covers a large area and is inclusive of both rural and city interests including producing and processing a number of agricultural products as well as manufacturing textiles, metallurgic goods, communication equipment, and pharmaceuticals. Steel mills, petrochemical and oil complexes, educational centers and financial institutions all contribute to Porto Alegre's diverse economy.
