Armando’s All Stars
One of the bars in the much-lauded, multi-level nightlife hotspot, Armando Records, Armando’s All Stars has a dash of 70’s flair and unbeatable ambience. This is where Bogota’s young, nightlife-loving locals come to spend their evenings. The music here takes its inspiration – in part – from Williamsburg, Harlem and the South Bronx, with funk, hip-hop, disco and dub as well as Latin tunes pumping through the sound system until the early hours.
Caramel-coloured wooden floors and rich leather chairs lend the bar some serious style, with more playful, colourful accents strewn throughout. There are nooks to disappear into with drinks and good friends. An area to chat and play pool in. Even spots to catch some fresh air.
Drinkers and dancers keen on exploring the rest of the Armando complex will find an al fresco rooftop space and a relaxing garden at the back, stuffed with lashings of greenery and Bogota’s beautiful taking a break from the bustle of the dancefloor.
Events take place week-round, including live DJ sets, but Armando’s All Stars, like the rest of Armando Records, really gets jumping on Friday and Saturday nights; the wise remember to make reservations ahead of time.
