Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Bogota

Gordo
Gordo is Bogota's answer to a Brooklyn-style bar with comfort food, good music and excellent drinks offered in its sleek space.
Armando’s All Stars
Armando's All Stars is one bars in Bogota's much-lauded, multi-level nightlife hotspot, Armando Records, offering 70’s flair and unbeatable ambience.
Anonymous
Anonymous is a fairly narrow bar that may be appropriate for a quiet drink early in the week, but later on the bar surges and overflows with perfectly put-together drink-lovers.
El Salto del Angel
El Salto del Angel is huge, taking up nearly a whole block, inside of which pitchers are tossed back with great gusto.
Chamois
Chamois is casual, unpretentious and one of the best bars in Bogotá.
Accento
Accento is designed to encourage customers to idle away the hours and comfortably transforms from lounge during the day to a sophisticated bar at night.
En Obra
If you want to be a part of Bogotá's vibrant student culture, then En Obra is the place to go.
Tirana
Tirana is designed to look like a plane cockpit with sloping wooden walls and aeroplane-shaped windows.
Monkey Pub
Hidden on the first floor of a rather ordinary building, The Monkey Pub is the number one spot for those in-the-know to enjoy an intimate atmosphere and first-class selection of beer.
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.
Harry’s Bar
Harry's Bar has a few kinks that need to be ironed out, but it's a stylish socialite's heaven and is here to stay.
Un Cuarto de Arte
Un Cuartro de Arte is an art gallery and bar with a long white corridor that displays cutting edge exhibitions.
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.
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.
Isola
Isola is slightly more relaxed than most Zona T bars, with a wide terrace, plenty of space inside and restaurant style-seating.
London Calling
London Calling is a very authentic replica of a London boozer-only with far less grime than the real thing.
Bar de Leo
The owner of restaurants Leo, Cocina y Cava and Leonor Espinosa created Bar de Leo as her contribution to Bogotá's bar scene.
Mink
Almost indistinguishable from the other bars on the street, Mink is a good example of a typical Zona T bar.
Eight Bells Inn
Expect plenty of good cheer and several rounds of drinks whenever you step through the door at Eight Bells Inn.
Museo del Tequila
'Museo del Tequila' is not just a cheesy name; the collection of 1585 bottles of tequila is the third biggest in the world, and the owner Don Alfonso Gonzales' knowledge on the liquor is limitless.
The Red Lion
An Englishman owns the Red Lion and has recreated a typical English pub in this favourite Parque 93 venue.
Kathmandu
Bursting with eastern promise, Kathmandu was the first place to sell hookah in Bogotá.
Disco Jaguar
Disco Jaguar is kitch, sexy and occasionally psychedelic, and incorporates a café, bar, club, gallery and sex shop all under one roof.
Serafina
Serafina is a sophisticated sports bar known primarily for its steaks and martinis - a heady combination, if ever there was one.
El Libertador
El Libertador is very much styled in the manner of a smoking club, and its sophisticated clientele reflect this dynamic.
The Irish Pub
Even amongst the lively crowds of Zona T, The Irish Pub stands out for its high level of buzz and energy.
El Bembe
Mojito in hand, cha cha cha the night away to live Latin American bands.
