La Troja is the quintessential landmark for salsa dancing in Barranquilla. It's not a club, it's not a bar, and it's not a pub. It is an outdoor venue to drink, dance, and sweat, sweat, sweat. If you are traveling through and have just a few nights, or even one, don't miss this place. You will either love it or hate it, but most people will ask you if you have been here if you went to Barranquilla. If you are a single male who speaks intermediate Spanish, you may find this place to be paradise. Full costeno, full chevere!
Dress Code: Something sexy and light for sweating and dancing.
Barranquilla's nightlife is excellent. The popular part of town is El Norte (North part of town). Froglegs and La Quinta are very popular, although you can go just about anywhere and have a good time. Beautiful women are everywhere, so wherever you go you’ll definitely see lots of them.
Dress Code: It gets very hot in Barranquilla, so everywhere you go you'll see guys wearing jeans, a nice pair of shoes and a t-shirt. Girls normally wear as little as possible!!!
Definately one of the best nightclubs in b/quilla. But just as in any other hot place - they are also quite selective on the door, so dress up and look your best. Otherwise the place is really great - excellent music and nice people, a bit expensive maybe, but it's worth it!!!
Dress Code: Try to look your best. Firstly cause you want to get in, and secondly - there are gorgeous members of the opposite sex in that place so you may want to impress them :)
The most famous and most popular nightclub in b/quilla. be prepared to be sent away from the door as they are really selective. really good music but a bit too stuck-up people. not my personal taste but we had loads of fun as you can see.. :)
Dress Code: fancy. if you are not pretty enough or not dressed well enough you are not gonna be let in.
Nightlife in Cartagena is quite lively, many bars with good (Salsa) music and cheap beer. It is never hard to find a decent place to eat either. Downtown there are many restaurants with carribean and creole specialities.
if you are looking for something in the city limits then you should definately visit that place. just to dance the night away in south america. and this is the best place for that. no admission fee, drinks are relativelty cheap and come with snacks. don't hope to get any food though. a really stereotypically colombian place.
Dress Code: again - anything you feel comfortable with. even shorts and sneakers are fine, if you feel good like that.
a really cool bar with nice but expensive coctails. it's expensive, but if you are looking for a more 'european/north-american' spot, then it's worth it. one of the really few kind of irish pubs in b/quilla.
Dress Code: nice clothes. not too fancy, but not too shabby either.
ok, imagine this - above you are a million stars, in front of you are waves crushing to the shore, just two metres away from you. the music is reggae or latino rythms (cumbia, salsa, merenque, vallenato, champeta etc.), romantic candles on the tables, you have a nice big glass of pina colada in your hand and you are sharing it with a hot colombian guy.... this is life :)
Dress Code: anything you want. since it's directly by the sea on the beach, then not too dressy - but just for your own comfort.
