Café Para Dos
The décor is not cloyingly ornate at Café Para Dos but bare-brick and wood walls serve as backdrop to tarnished shields and lizard carvings which are certainly not the norm of other cafés in Bogotá. There’s an exotic Buddhist element present in the many statues, carved elephants and sequined hangings that are scattered across two floors, and customers sit on overstuffed cushions on the floor. Hookah is a large part of the atmosphere, and most people order one to go along with their crepe (the café speciality). There are plenty of cocktails, too, and many different rooms in which to tuck yourself away and enjoy your drink para dos. The café has a strong following of regulars, drawn by a shared appreciation for the laid-back vibe and atmospheric design.
