Nightlife in Bogota: The Best Opportunity to Meet the Locals

Aug 17, 2007
As most guide books state, the best you can find in Colombia is people. Also tourists that have stayed in the country advise new visitors to try to get in touch with locals because they are amongst the friendliest people on earth, thus before going somewhere, it is important to know which are the best places not only to have fun but to meet people.

As all the big cities of South America, Bogota has a very rich nightlife with the right atmosphere to meet the locals, therefore there are many web sites that give information about restaurants, bars, cinemas, discotheques, shows, theater and all the events that are considered special each week.

It is well known that the best areas of the city to enjoy through the night are in the north part of the city, some examples are El Parque de la 93 which is located in one of the most exclusive zones of the city between the 93A and 93B streets and the 11th A and 13 avenues; La Zona Rosa which is the main nightlife zone of the city because it comprises a great number of bars, restaurants and nightclubs that can that please every taste; La Calera which is a route through the east hills of the city and has a wide variety of restaurants and nightclubs; and the called Zona T in Chapinero with an amazing range of establishments.

Getting into more detail, Bogota has some places and offers some activities that are ideal in order to meet people. In terms of places El Salon, located on Calle 93A No 11-30, is a restaurant that opens from 7 a.m until 3 a.m during the weekends and until 1 a.m on week days and has original live shows performed by the waiters who are artists or in other words, by the artists who are waiters. There are twenty artists that sing, dance, act and besides wait at tables. While some of them are taking the orders, others grab a guitar and go from table to table singing a song. When the hit of the night is on and the place has reached the proper atmosphere the waiters take their dance couples and give an excellent dancing show.

In terms of activities, La Chiva is a very good way to run La calera route and to see the best of the city while passengers sing and dance. La Chiva is like a big bus but has more space and does not have any glass on the windows, it is a typical and colourful means of transport and lately it has been transformed into a rolling nightclub. Some of the chivas include in their prices drinks, food and the entrance to some discotheques.

No doubt Bogota is full of alternatives to get to know the friendly locals, you just have to take the time and search for the right places.
