All cities have their popular, trending areas. Cosmopolitan Bogota is no different. For a meal amid a bohemian artsy ambience, make sure you head to La Macarena in Downtown Bogota. For fine dining, Zona G will satisfy all of your pleasures. Looking for the best nightclubs, Zona T or Zona Rosa offers a variety of exciting options. You can also find great dinner and drinks in Usaquén or around Parque de la 93.

Best Bars in Bogotá

Before going out dancing, it is very common to make your first stop at a pub and enjoy a couple of beers. Bogotá Beer Company is one of the most popular spots with several venues distributed throughout the city. Delight yourself in Colombian artisanal beers named after typical and historical locations in and around Bogotá, such as Cajicá (honey ale), Monserrate Roja (red beer), and Chapinero Porter (black beer). Enjoy a draft beer at The Pub, where amazing music and ambience resemble an Irish experience, or sip a craft beer at The Monkey House, where you will also find the largest variety of international and Colombian beers.

If you’re looking to have a couple of drinks, you will find the city’s best martinis at Pravda. We highly recommend the Chocolate martini and Lychee martini. After two martinis you will probably feel ready to head out to a nightclub. You will find delicious cocktails at Black Bear and honestly, the Black Bear Gin tonic is pretty addictive. We recommend ordering several dishes and sharing with your friends and family.

You will completely fall in love with chic restaurant Bandido, where the atmosphere, combined with a delicious French cuisine and friends, will create a special memory. If gin is your drink , enjoy some blues and jazz at Roxanne Gin Bar & Great Food. Smoking Molly offers you live blues and rock music, while you enjoy an amazing burger and drinks.

Bogotá Nightclubs

You’ve probably heard that if you visit Bogota you have to make sure to go to Andrés Carne de Res, and we not only agree, but want to ensure you make it to one of the two locations, either in  Bogota in the famous Zona T or in Chia, as we can practically guarantee you will have the time of your life and it will blow your mind away.

For starters, the food is unbelievable. It has a vast menu, and anything and everything you order is beyond delicious. So, make sure to not fill up on appetizers, the main courses and desserts are totally worth it. Besides, the party at Andrés is out-of-this-world. The decorations, which are all based on recycled material, the crossover music, and in-house entertainment breath life and ambience to your night. Pay special attention to the heart above your table. This is your table’s name and will be your guide in case you have too many mandarinos.

Live Colombian music makes Gaira one of the best nightclubs in Bogotá. Owned by celebrity brothers, Carlos and Guillermo Vives, you will dance to the best Colombian rhythms, while enjoying Caribbean food. We especially recommend the arepa de huevo and carimañolas. El Fabuloso and Armando Records are among the most popular nightclubs in the city, offering a party that satisfies all music preferences, including reggaetón, salsa, and electronic music. This party will keep you busting moves all night long.

Furia Rooftop offers you a modern and sophisticated rooftop party experience amid an art deco decoration. AtClandestino,the rooftop party is all about electronic music. You will feel like a VIP celebrity. At Galería Café Libro you will dance your salsa filled heart out. Located on a 40th floor, Céntrico offers you the most amazing view of Bogotá while you dance the night away.
