We were hesitant to pay 30 pesos per person but it seemed like it was popular. Once we got in, the bar and all of the tables were full so we kept an eye on the tables since we just paid $60 pesos to get...More

Truly like you're stepping into the Havana of the 1950s. When we walked in the live band was playing El Quarto de Tula which is one of my favorites - I knew it would be a good night. The entrance has a sign which clearly...More

Extremely impolite staff, quite expensive (30.000 entrance a 20.000 per drink). Make sure you dont come early, it starts around 1130. Live music is really nice though. Don’t expect to see high level salsa dancing, mostly tourists. Its so busy that you can hardly dance...More

Decent place is Getsemani. Typically a cover which is sort of annoying for Colombia but the live music is good. Drinks are pricey so expect to pay more than at a typical local bar.

This place came highly recommended as a great Salsa Club with live music and dancing. It gets crowded on the weekend and the dance floor is really small but it has a large bar. It is a couples hangout of varying age, usually 35 and...More

It's preferred to have a reservation or it is better to go at 7:30-8:00 pm before the site gets crowded and it's OK for two ladies going along. Have a rum from Colombia caribbean coast and enjoy the night!
