The parties in Bogotá are wild and you have a broad range of the type you places can experience. Some places have live music, reggaeton, electronic music, local hipsters, or simply a great view. There’s something for everyone in Bogotá.
Here are the top 10 places you have to visit to get the best experience out of Bogotá’s nightlife.
Kaputt is one of the best nightclubs in Bogotá right now. The place is massive and features several different rooms with Latin music, techno, funky electronic, classic hits, and more. They even have a food truck for when you get the munchies.
Address: San Felipe, Avenida Caracas No. 72a-19
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.
Calle Dragones features live music & cabaret shows and is definitely one of the classiest places to go out in Zona T. This is more of a place to enjoy drinks and delicious cuisine rather than a party, but it’s a unique experience to add to your nightlife list.
Address: Zona T, Carrera 13 #85 – 65
Clandestino is one of the newer nightclubs to open in Bogotá and the people going here know how to party! This is going to have Bogotá’s fashionable & trendy crowd so be sure to dress up. The club is a bit hidden and you need to walk up four flights of stairs to get to it. One floor has reggeaton and current top hits and the other has a rooftop with electronic house music. They also have an insane BRUNCH PARTY once a month so be sure to visiting their Instagram to see when the next one is.
Address: Zona T, Calle 82 #12 – 50
El Fabuloso will literally make you feel fabulous. It’s located on the 7th floor of a building with a dramatically large elevator that sets the stage. This place can get packed and has strict bouncers at the door so you want to get there around 10 pm before everyone else. The music is typically crossover, which is a mix of latin-pop, reggaeton, electronic, and the latest American music.
Address: Zona T, Calle 85 #14 – 05
Theatron is one of the largest nightclubs in Latin America and feels like an entire city when you enter. It consists of five floors with 13 different ambiances. It’s technically an LGBT venue but you’ll find all Bogotános here because the party is good and you can’t beat the price – open bar from 8 pm – 2 am for 50K Pesos ($16 USD). However, if you’re going to go, Saturday is the night!
Address: Chapinero, Calle 58 #10 – 32
At El Coq, you’ll find Bogotá’s creative crowd sipping craft cocktails and jamming out to indie electronic beats. The atmosphere is stylish, with an eclectic decor and a tree growing in the middle of the venue.
Address: Zona T, Calle 84 Bis #14 – 02
Video Club is one of my favorite spots to enjoy a night of house/disco/electronic music. The entrance in Chapinero is easy to pass up as it is just an unmarked black door inside a beautifully refurbished warehouse type of building. Whats nice is that you have a spot to enjoy the DJ and dance as well as an outdoor terrace where you can actually enjoy conversation with friends. They are also one of the few places that stay open until 5 am.
Address: Chapinero, Calle 64 #13 – 09
Bogotá is a big city so you can find somewhere to party almost any day of the week. On Tuesdays, the party happens at Vintrash Bar for their legendary Gringo Tuesdays party. It starts as an international language exchange and get together, but gets wild after the drinks start flowing.
Address: Zona T, Calle 85 #11 – 53
Andrés Carne de Res is the most emblamatic Colombian parties you can ever attend in Bogotá. It’s kind of hard to explain what Andrés Carne de Res is because it’s something that you have to experience to understand. There are two locations, one in the city and one in Chia. The Chia location is around 50 minutes from the city so I recommend booking a spot on the Andrés Carne de Res Party Bus because they take care of the transportation both ways, entrance fee, you get free cocktails on the bus ride there, and have a fun group to party with. Once there you can order typical Colombian dishes, drinks, and dance on a table. I think after going you’ll have an understanding of crazy Colombian culture.
Address: Chia, Calle 3 #11a – 56
