Balzac's brick walls and wooden beams provide a dimly-lit, atmospheric setting for French cuisine right in the centre of Zona T.

Aero Kids
Kitsch wonders abound at Aero Kids, with clothes to suit any style or mood.
El Techo
El Techo may serve as a gourmet Mexican restaurant during the day, but come dusk the live mariachis begin and those who know who to party waste no time in downing the very best tequila.

Malu
Gorgeous bags in embroidered materials and patchwork leathers.
Michel Patissier
Michel Patissier has provided Bogotá with high-quality croissants and pastries for over thirty years. Be sure to stop and refuel.
Luna
Stop by Luna for a Sunday brunch and watch all the Zona T-revellers as they try to hide their hangovers behind oversized sunglasses.
Abasto
Abasto looks like one of Jamie Oliver's cookbooks come to life. In a good way.

Top up your music and DVD libraries at La Musica.
Segafredo Zanetti

Casa de la Botica
If you aren't fussed by service, Hotel Casa de la Botica will give you a true taste of Colombian culture in lovely surroundings.
Gato Gris
El Gato Gris is packed with an eccentric crowd of locals, and with great food and a quirky aesthetic it's well worth the visit.

Fashionable finds for men and women.
Chamois
Chamois is casual, unpretentious and one of the best bars in Bogotá.

Fashion for the young 'uns, with a wardrobe packed full of chic clothes.
Vicky Moreinis
