Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Bogota

Le Manoir Hotel
Hole up in suitably hedonistic fashion here; for couples without children, Hotel Manoir makes a romantic alternative from Bogota's more well-known resting spots.
In Vitro
In Vitro's happy atmosphere is infectious, if a little bizarre; come here on a good night and you'll feel as though you're at a wedding with strangers.
Un Cuarto de Arte
Un Cuartro de Arte is an art gallery and bar with a long white corridor that displays cutting edge exhibitions.
Catedral de Sal de Zipaquira
The Catedral de Sal is an incredible architectural construction, carved entirely from salt rock 200-metres underground.
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.
Catedral Primada
Catedral Primada is a Roman Catholic Cathedral that dates back to the founding of Bogota.
Hugo Boss
Teatro Colsubsidio
Teatro Colsubsidio Roberto Arias Perez is one of Bogota's most prominent cultural institutions, with significant opera and ballet performances taking place within its walls.
Windsor House
The rooms at Hotel Windsor House provide plenty of space, and the short walk to Parque 93 is another added bonus.
Rock ‘n’ Jazz Casino
The huge red-and-orange neon sign that hangs outside sets the tone for Rock 'n' Jazz Casino.
Royal American Limousine Service
Bettina Spitz
Bettina Spitz stocks all kinds of gorgeous goodies, from chic clothes to beautiful accessories.
Leo Cocina y Cava
Leo Cocina y Cava is good - very good, even - but if you expect to dine at one of the best restaurants in the world (it has been included in such lists) you may be slightly disappointed.
Andres DC
Andres DC, the inner city version of the legendary Andres Carne de Res, doesn't quite live up to the legendary reputation of the original but it does manage to be a dynamic bar in its own right.
Museo de Arte Moderno
Museo de Arte Moderno de Bogot - or MAMBO, as it is otherwise known - is a huge, sweeping complex of internationally-acclaimed and stylistically-diverse modern art.
Lina Cantillo
Breathe some fresh life into your wardrobe with simple, stylish clothes from Lina Cantillo.
Andres Otalora
Floaty, girl clothes from Andres Otalora.
Calvin Klein
Kenneth Cole
Isola
Isola is slightly more relaxed than most Zona T bars, with a wide terrace, plenty of space inside and restaurant style-seating.
Andino Royal
The stained glass arch above Andino Royal's double glass doors says it all: quaint, a little old fashioned, but ultimately attractive.
London Calling
London Calling is a very authentic replica of a London boozer-only with far less grime than the real thing.
Rosales Plaza Hotel
Tucked away within the gourmet district of Zona G sits the unassuming brown brick tower of Rosales Plaza, frequented by sophisticated insiders.
Radio Berlin
Radio Belin is the most alternative club in Bogota, and the venue of choice for dedicated music-lovers.
Freeport
Sensible shoes don't have to scrimp on style, as demonstrated by Freeport.
La Cigale
D’Marcha
Enter the darkened grocery store, follow a group of well-heeled twentysomethings to the lift and travel up to the seventh floor to enter the sleek sophistication of D'Marcha.
Romeo
Romeo is the most exclusive gay club in Bogota, with a meticulously-manicured crowd of revellers inside and people-watching opportunities aplenty.
Di Lucca
Inspiring Italian fare awaits at Di Lucca, which has an excellent reputation and a fit-to-bursting reservations book.
Pedrojas
Biker chic is in at Pedrojas, which sells buttery-soft leather jackets aplenty.

Guess
