Bogota Nightlife | The 14 Best Bars and Clubs in 2020

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Bogota nightlife is the best in Latin America.

It’s the bomb diggity. The bee’s knees.

Nowhere I’ve been comes close. There’s nothing like Zona T anywhere in the entire region. Sure, Medellin has Parque Lleras – but that’s a gringo trap and prepago-infested. Not a huge fan. Zona Colonial has some action around Santo Domingo, but it doesn’t hold a candle to the infamous Zona T nightlife.

Panama City has a few fun high-end spots, but they’re all too spread out. Lima nightlife can be a damn good time, but I’d still take Bogota over the Peruvian capital any day.

And while I haven’t been to Brazil, I doubt even Rio’s famously rowdy rumba could compete with the hedonistic scene in Bogota.  My Brazilian friend reckons Bogota is numero uno.

Coming from cincy ohio!! Ill be there alone on March 7 through the 12! No idea what im getting into or where to party but i can be a bit of an animal!! Thanks for the ideas. Are there any places you would reccomend that has a good amount of people yet still a bar scene thats not too pushy. I want a good place to relaX, drink and “fish” without standing there looking dumb for hours. Somewhere where the girls no the gringos hang out on say a Thursday

Have an open ended trip landing In Bogotá from Canada this Wednesday and am going to want to get fucked up! What are my options?

    Jake Nomada - November 27, 2018

    Zona T is your best bet.

    Maybe the Irish pub or BBC in Zona T.

    Langauge exchange in La Candelaria.

    Or if you’re feeling like an abject degenerate, go to Santa Fe.

Lol bro. Don’t be soo fast. Brazils off the chain and the nightlife is better than Colombia. Your Brazilian friend is just a brazil hating dork. São Paulo is the best nightlife in the world, and don’t even get me started on florianopolis and the clubs in the south. Some of the too rated clubs in the world are in the south of Brazil

Any way you can tell us any hot spots for specific days of the week? Lweds to Sunday?

We love reggaeton and hip hop! Thanks mate

    Gringo Tuesday for Tuesday clearly.

    Weekends pretty much anything works.

    Wednesday and Thursday I’d check Armando first. Then maybe Irish Pub.

    Sunday/Monday…just go to Santa Fe LOL

Single guy travelling on his own who speaks no Spanish… Where would you recommend?

    Jake Nomada - January 31, 2019

    Lots of English speakers in Zona T area. I wouldn’t venture too far out of that zone without Spanish.

    Gringo Tuesday will have English speakers for sure.

Anything you can recommend on Friday and Sat on Easter weekend? I understand that it’ll be very quiet, but is there anywhere we should at least try?

Reply
    Jake Nomada - March 26, 2019

    Bogota may very well be dead that weekend, as Cartagena and Santa Marta will be amazing. I’d recommend starting off with anything on the list above around Zona T.

    If something will be good during Easter weekend in Bogota, it’ll be around there.

    Or just book a flight to the coast 😉

Why do you use word gringo’you wouldn’t use the word spik it’s such a racist term

Reply
    Jake Nomada - August 9, 2019

    I’m 110% gringo and I find no issues with the term.

    If you do, that’s on you…and you may want to stick to hostel bars and such, as real latin american culture doesn’t give a damn about PC culture

    Any foreigner, man! You’re good to go.

    Just take an Uber to Vintrash in Zona T for Gringo Tuesday.

    Always take Uber in Colombia.
