There’s been a number of rooftop bars opening in Bogotá with plenty of spots where you can enjoy a drink with spectacular views of the city and mountains (just be sure to arrive by 6 pm if you want to see the sunset since it gets dark early in this city). I spent some time exploring & drinking at every rooftop bar I could find and narrowed my list down to the best spots available.
So, here are my picks for the best rooftop bars in Bogotá, Colombia. Cheers!
Apache at Click Clack Hotel
Apache is the OG of rooftop bars in Bogotá. It’s set on the top floor of the super hip Click Clack Hotel and usually packs in a crowd of affluent locals and tourists. The bar is fully glass-enclosed so it can be enjoyed no matter the weather and it allows you to enjoy sweeping views of the city.
Address: Parque 93, Carrera 11 #93-77
Vista Corona is the latest rooftop to open in Bogotá and offers one of the most incredible views of the city. The venue is massive with plenty of seating but can have a wait to enter on the weekends. I also like that indoor/outdoor spaces have a retractable roof so you can enjoy an open-air breeze when it’s nice out. Vista Corona is also heavily sponsored by Corona and they give you a free beer every day at 6 pm to enjoy while watching the sunset.
Address: Parque 93, Carrera 12 #93-99, 11th floor of Salvio Building
I love living in Chapinero but the one thing it was missing before was a killer rooftop bar. The recently opened O.D.E.M. venue now satisfies my rooftop needs and is quickly becoming where the “cool kids” of the neighborhood flock to. The terrace overlooks the gorgeous Lourdes Cathedral and is perfect for after-work sunset drinks and then it turns into a party vibe as the night goes on.
Address: Chapinero, Calle 63 #13-11
If you’re looking for a rooftop with a party vibe, Federal is the spot to go. They are well known for their day party brunches every Saturday and after office drink specials on Thursday and Friday.
Address: Zona T, Calle 82 #12-25
Sky 15 at Hilton
Sky 15 on the rooftop of Hilton caters to the after-work crowd in the financial district and is only open on Thursdays and Fridays. The gorgeous open-air view of the mountains that is worth stopping by for a drink or bite to eat.
Address: Financial District, Carrera 7 #72-41, 15th floor of Hilton
The rooftop at BOG Hotel is another favorite and has a luxurious infinity pool with large glass walls to enjoy the view. The roof and side panels are also retractable so it can be visited any time of year.
Address: La Cabrera, Carrera 11 #86-74
Zetai is a Nikkei – Asian fusion lounge located on the top floor of Hotel Black in Bogotá’s charming Usaquén neighborhood. They have various specials throughout the week like Gin o’Clock on Fridays and Saturdays where you can enjoy open Gin and Tonics for 70K pesos from 8 pm – 10 pm. They also have a brunch on some Saturdays from 12 pm – 4 pm for 95 K with open food & drinks.
Address: Usaquén, Calle 127 #7D-11, 8th floor of Hotel Black
Céntrico gets the award for tallest rooftop in Bogotá as it’s on the 41st floor with a crazy panoramic view of the city. They are open for lunch & dinner and then it turns into a nightclub at night on the weekends.
Address: Centro Internacional, Carrera 7 #32-36
If you’d rather head to a rooftop for food, Cocina Abierta is an amazing new venue with six different restaurants along an open-air terrace. There’s plenty of lounge-style seating where you can hang out for a bite to eat or stay for a drink!
Address: Parque 93, Calle 93b #11A-84
