Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Bogota

Balzac
Balzac's brick walls and wooden beams provide a dimly-lit, atmospheric setting for French cuisine right in the centre of Zona T.
Pauela Dugue
Need something special for that decadent event? Head to Pauela Dugue for elegant eveningwear.
Joanna Ortiz
Crank up the glamour with elegant evening wear and gowns from Joanna Ortiz.
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.
Rafael Paez
Rafael Paez sells elegant eveningwear for even more elegant ladies.
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.
Sowelu
Tread the red carpet in style with something suitably swish from Sowelu.
Central Cevicheria
Start an evening out in Zona T at Central Cevicheria, where sumptuous seafood and fresh fish are very much the order of the day.
Michel Patissier
Michel Patissier has provided Bogotá with high-quality croissants and pastries for over thirty years. Be sure to stop and refuel.
Armi
Style-conscious men love nothing more than perusing the chic clothes that line the shelves at Armi.
Donostia
Tucked away in the newly-fashionable (and forever beautiful) La Macarena, Donostia adds unexpected spices to traditional dishes for Colombian cuisine with a twist.
Lievando
Accessories maketh the outfit, so make sure yours dazzle with select pieces from Lievando.
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.
Hotel Charleston
Hotel Charleston's reputation as one of the most-sought after addresses in Bogota is wholly deserved.
Via Sport
Boating style abounds at Via Sport, where stripes and sailor-prints are very much in vogue.
Sofitel Victoria Regia
Victoria Regia breathes the effortless elegance that can only be created by natural taste.
Bintari Spa
Rockefeller Poker Room & Casino
Rockefeller Poker Room & Casino is a flashy casino with a prime location in Zona Rosa.
Casa Dann Carlton
Casa Dann Carlton isn't the best example of Colombian culture, but if you're in Bogota on business then it's a good choice. And who can argue with a personal in-room bar?
Embassy Suites
Bogota's Hilton outpost is encased within a grey block, but inside is a spacious, sumptuously-designed stay.
Museo de Arte del Banco
Museo Banco de la Republica is a cultural delight in the historical area of Candelaria.
Hazalo Artaloft
Self-consciously old-fashioned homeware for design-istas.
Palacio de Narino
Palacio de Narino completes Candelaria's political institutions as home of the President of Colombia.
Cecilia Perez
Sumptuous materials make up the ultra-chic collection at Cecilia Perez.
Biblioteca Luis Angel Arango
Biblioteca Luis Angel Arango (B.I.A.A.) is an important cultural icon, both for Colombia and for South American academia.
Pajares Salinas
Pajares Salinas has been a Bogotá institution since it first opened in 1958.
Sofia’s
Glitzy eveningwear for ladies.
Cachao
A visit to Cachao demands a little shopping preparation: a night at this bar-however well-intentioned the beginnings-will not be complete without suitably stylish shoes in which to keep pace with the fast-timed salsa.
Club Colombia
Club Colombia serves exclusively Colombian food, prepared to an extremely high standard and with more than enough options to surprise even the most seasoned diner.
Mario Hernandez
Luxury leather and other stylish skins await at Mario Hernandez.
De Oro Galeria
Nothing says 'I love you' better than a new piece of bling; head to De Oro for a super-stylish selection.
Shetland
Wrap up warm with a gorgeous wrap from Shetland.
Emerald Trade Center
Bling is the thing at Emerald Trade Center, where green is not just the colour of envy.
Hotel Capital
The perfect business hotel, Hotel Capital will please sharp-suited, briefcase-toting corporate types in Bogota for work.
Illy
Illy is a true Colombian café, heaving with political discussions and football debates.
Rausch Patissier
Rasuch Paitssier is owned by Criterion's chefs, but this time Mark Rausch takes the reigns as pastry chef in a more relaxed, informal setting.
Radisson Royal
A marble enshrined lobby sets the tone of simple grandeur for Bogota's Hotel Radisson, something of a super-stay in Colombia's cool capital.
Ricardo Pava
Only super-discerning, sharp-suited gents step out of Ricardo Pava.
Catedral de Sal de Zipaquira
The Catedral de Sal is an incredible architectural construction, carved entirely from salt rock 200-metres underground.
Windsor House
The rooms at Hotel Windsor House provide plenty of space, and the short walk to Parque 93 is another added bonus.
