With its luxurious, 1920s-style decor, experimental cocktails and ever-popular fairy lit rooftop, Alquímico is fast becoming one of Cartagena‘s most talked about bars. Spread out over three floors of a beautifully restored colonial mansion, you could easily spend your whole evening here. The first floor is dedicated to pre-dinner aperitifs, whilst the second is for pool and dinner, and the last – the famous rooftop – for getting the party started over a couple of al fresco aguardiente cocktails. Don’t miss their Passion Tea cocktail infused with passion fruit rum and black tea syrup. If you’re staying for dinner, their seared octopus served with creole chimichurri is pretty sensational too.
