Only two decades ago, this colorful old district located in northern Bogota was originally just a town located close to the capital. Now, Usaquen is part of the metropolitan area of this now sprawling Colombian capital. Its old buildings, central square, streets and alleyways still maintain its beautiful colonial architecture, making it an extraordinary attraction for locals and tourists alike. Charming houses and colonial patios have been converted into casual restaurants, sidewalk cafes, art galleries and romantic nightspots, like cozy lounges and bars.
Dancing Sky High
There are three nightspots in Bogota that stand out for their impressive city views. One of them is The End, a large dance floor located on the 30th floor of the Tequendama ResidentialTowers, a few blocks away from the city's historic downtown. This huge nightclub can accommodate up to 1,200 people and brings vibrant electronic beats to sultry Bogota nights. There are windows on all sides so that you can admire the view and the brilliant city lights, while you dance and mingle the night away. Level 41 is not just the name of another recommendation: it also indicates the floor on which this trendy nightclub is located. Level 41 attracts people for its hi-tech sound system, its DJ mixes and its magnificent view from the 41st floor of the famed Bogota Hilton. Bogota's upper crust meet every weekend at this elegant venue, located in one of the most remarkable skyscrapers of the city.
Last, but not least, is La Calera. This wonderful countryside location is not far from Bogota's metropolitan zone. It is actually a few minutes away and uphill from the popular Usaquen and Chapinero districts. From this romantic point high up in the hills, admire a bright constellation of colorful lights outlining the extensive urban area of the Colombian capital. La Calera features many entertainment options and is a favorite getaway for locals, offering the countryside experience without having to travel too far. La Calera is distinguished basically for two things: its chilly weather (located in the Andes as it can get quite cold) and its exclusive and fashionable venues. Visitors are welcomed with an impressive city view and a fine selection of wines and drinks. It can be a bit expensive for a night on the town in La Calera but the experience is definitely worth every penny.
