Eve Bidmead

Medellín is a city that never stops. As Colombia’s second largest city, it’s hugely popular with travelers and offers a brilliant nightlife. Check out this list of the city’s top bars so that you know where to head when you feel like having a drink in Medellín.

Bottles at a bar

1. Tres Cordilleras

Bar, Beer, Wine, Cocktails, Pub Grub

More of a special brewery than a regular bar, Tres Cordilleras is located downtown. The brewery supplies local bars and it often offers ‘brewery tours’. The tours include talks on the process of making beer and visitors are also able to sample their beers in a bar-like environment. The tours have a fun party atmosphere featuring varied music, from classic UK rock to modern dance, welcoming a live band on the last Thursday of every month.

2. Vertigo

Located in the fun, chilled out area of Laureles, Vertigo is a great sports bar that offers delicious American food and stocks the popular Tres Cordilleras beer, so you’ll find great drinks too. The 18-wing platter is especially recommended – here the drinks will be soaked up by the massive portions of food.

3. Calle 9

Bar, Beer, Wine, Cocktails, Pub Grub

Calle 9 is a bar with a great atmosphere conveniently located right next to Parque Lleras, making it the perfect stop in a night of bar-hopping around the area. With a relaxed door policy here the mixed, alternative crowd dances away to a mix of music, with anything from house to 80’s pop featuring on the playlist. On warm nights the canopy is left open so that you can gaze at the stars while you boogie the night away.

4. La strada

Why head to just one bar when you can visit many under one roof? La Strada is a multilevel entertainment mall in Poblado, where the rich, young and beautiful come to brush shoulders with similar folk. You can just head along and enjoy the vibrant atmosphere and brilliant, if somewhat over-priced, beverages.
