Park
“Nice small park surrounded by upscale bars and restuarants. The nightlife is more laid back, for something a little more wild Zona T is better.”

“You mustn't miss out on this. An eclectic experience of food drinks, music and a particular scenery. Worth every penny. Go to either Andres DC in Bogotá (Zona T at El Retiro Shopping Mall ) or to Andrés Carne de Res Chía for the best party of your life ”

“The original one is in Chia (about an hour's drive but the place is worth it!). Great ambiance for dining and partying/dancing in a fun setting. They have another place, Andrés DC, in walking distance yet it is not as good as the one in Chia. Ideally make reservations or arrive early. Plan to leave late! Or, should you be going with children, go at lunch time.”
