Best Rooftop Bars in Medellin

Best Medellín rooftop bars
Coracao Rooftop

Nestled in a valley in the Andean mountains, Medellín boasts some of the best views in Colombia. Many local businesses have taken advantage of these rolling hills and the temperate climate to take things al-fresco, to the rooftops. Whether you are there to party, drink, or eat, be sure to check out our favorite recommendations for the best rooftops in Medellín.

Something we love about a good rooftop is versatility. A good rooftop bar can literally see you through from brunch to the early hours of the morning. It’s great to appreciate a good sunset from a rooftop (and in Medellín, you see the most stunning sunsets). There’s also something magical about the city at night from above; thousands of lights twinkling below you like fireflies.

Whether you are visiting Medellín with your partner, with friends, or even with your bachelorette or bachelor group, you are sure to fall in love with this enchanting city and its stunning views.

But where can you find the best rooftop bars in Medellín? Read on to find out or book a Bar Hopping experience with us!

Envy Rooftop (The Charlee Hotel, Parque Lleras)

Envy Rooftop is the place to see and be seen in Medellín. This luxurious rooftop bar is located on top of the gorgeous Charlee Hotel. You can find it in the heart of the nightlife district; Lleras Park, Poblado. Built on two levels with an aquarium-style pool in the middle, the views are just as good inside as they are out. Grab one of the best cocktails in Medellín and some fresh sushi and admire the beautiful people. Then, when the sun starts to set behind the mountains, take in the beauty of the twinkling lights of the city below you. It truly is one of the best rooftops in Medellín. 

Envy has something to offer every day of the week; enjoy live music on Salsa Wednesdays and a live DJ the rest of the week. Don’t forget to visit Envy on the last Sunday of the month for its famous boozy bottomless brunch. Take the word “brunch” with a pinch of salt, as the kitchen opens from 5 PM onwards, which gives you plenty of time for a lie-in. You can take a dip in the pool or chill at the bar, just don’t miss this chic spot on your trip to Medellín.

La Deriva (Click Clack Hotel, Poblado)

Perched on top of the Click Clack Hotel, La Deriva isn’t just for hotel guests. Head to La Deriva for cocktails and delicious food in an urban jungle setting. Imagine yourself dipping your toes in the rooftop pool whilst sipping on an Aperol Spritz…yes, this is the lifestyle you deserve! At La Deriva, they have a live DJ who pumps out the best tunes.

Fish and seafood are imported from Isla Fuerte, a nearby island in the Colombian Caribbean. The menu is inspired by coastal recipes all throughout Latin America. Travel, through their menu, from the Golf of Mexico, to the Colombian Pacific, to the coasts of Peru.

We love the unpretentiousness of this rooftop oasis. Make use of their comfy loungers and take in the gorgeous Medellín skyline. La Deriva is open from midday until late, every day of the week.

Mosquito Rooftop (The Somos Hotel, Poblado)

If you want an all-encompassing place that promises excellent quality service from breakfast to midnight cocktails, head to Mosquito Rooftop. From mind-blowing brunches to getting down and dirty on the dance floor, this is the place to be. The rooftop at Mosquito offers panoramic views of Medellín, where you can surely lock in many Medellín core memories. This stunning Medellín skyline is actually the backdrop to the DJ booth. It undoubtedly makes for an unforgettable night as you explore Medellín’s nightlife. We love the oasis vibe with the rooftop lined with greenery.

Teatro Victoria Roof Garden (Provenza, Poblado)

Teatro Victoria bar Medellin

Located in trendy Provenza, Teatro Victoria is right in the heart of the action. Victoria Roof Garden has a chic and contemporary vibe. It’s our favorite of the four ambiences in the Teatro Victoria nightclub because taking in the freshness of the Medellín night on a rooftop is far superior to being stuck inside a sweaty club.

Don’t arrive too late for the chance to dine. They have an extensive menu of mouthwatering dishes. The menu showcases both local and international flavors; from soft bao, to fresh sushi, to exquisitely prepared meat and fish dishes. You can also find an impressive selection of craft cocktails at the bar.

ENE Restobar Hookah Lounge (Provenza, Poblado)

Ene Restobar Hookah Lounge in Medellín is a must-visit destination for those seeking a unique rooftop experience combined with a touch of Middle Eastern flair. It’s the perfect place to visit with a Medellín bachelor party group. Pull up a seat and share a hookah amongst friends. It’s one of our favorite pre-game spots, but also a place to chill when you don’t feel like going “out-out”. They have a delectable menu, featuring international dishes and dishes to share. We loved the crab and shrimp nachos and their specialty; the ENE fries with cheese, beef, and bacon. Bring your appetite!

Belisario (Provenza, Poblado)

If you’re looking for both a taste of Medellín nightlife and a taste of some of the best food and cocktails in Medellín, head on down to Belisario. The menu is Mexican, but it’s so much more than tacos. Sure, you can get some of the best tacos of your life here, but open your mind and imagination to beef tenderloin flambéed in tequila. Or perhaps we can tempt you with a mezcal and hibiscus cocktail. Truly heaven on earth! Afterwards, you can pop behind the bookshelf to the hidden club, La Oculta. We sang its praises in our Medellín Nightlife blog post.

360° Rooftop Bar (Hotel Haven, Poblado)

360° Rootop Bar Medellin

The rooftop bar on the top of Hotel Haven has, as its name promises, a breathtaking 360° view of Medellín. On the 11th floor of Hotel Haven, it’s the highest rooftop on our list. 360 Rooftop bar knows how to host a party. They will frequently have pool parties (in the heated pool!), electronic parties, neon nights, and their Sunday Funday brunch. Brunch is a perfect excuse for a party – especially when it’s all-you-can-eat from 11 AM to 4 PM! Lounge in the pool, grab some sliders and an artisan cocktail, and put the fun in your Sunday! Brunch is also only 20 bucks, which is an absolute steal.

Medellín Nightlife FAQs

Have a burning question about nightlife in Medellín and didn’t know who to ask? No worries, we are locals, and we got you, boo!

How much does a cocktail typically cost in Medellín? 

Cocktails in Medellín are a fine art form. Talented mixologists work hard to produce delicious cocktails that satisfy all the senses. Glassware in Medellín is trending, so don’t be surprised if you are handed a wooden totem, a bronze goblet, or even a porcelain skull to drink from. Flowers, dry ice, and fruit garnishes add to the extravagance of the experience. Expect to pay from $45.000 COP to $55.000 COP (around $10 USD) for a cocktail.

What time do people go out drinking and dancing?

In Medellín, the nightlife scene typically starts to pick up around 9 PM, especially on weekends. People often gather at bars and lounges during this time to socialize and pre-game. But between 10 PM and 2 AM is when you will see most people in the streets and bars. During these hours, Provenza and Parque Lleras come alive with energy and music. It’s common for people to transition from bars to clubs later in the evening, with many clubs staying open until the early morning hours.

What time do places typically close in Medellín?

Generally, bars and lounges in el Poblado close around 2 AM. However, there are also venues that stay open later, particularly clubs that may continue operating until 4 AM or even later, especially on weekends. Just ask us where to go and we’ll do the rest – we can even make sure you have transport home! 

What is the dress code for going out in Medellín?

The streets of Provenza at night are a catwalk for the young and beautiful – even more so in July and August when the fashion shows hit town. Medellín weather at night is cool enough to warrant a light jacket or jeans, but will also be fine for a dress and heels.

Paisas, or locals to Medellín, love to dress up, and you will often see women with a full face of makeup and a stunning waterfall of shiny hair. Men go for the smart-casual look; jeans or chinos with a shirt or polo. Make sure to bring your A-game, and don’t forget that some nicer restaurants and clubs have a strict dress code. That means no caps, no sneakers or sliders, no sandals and no shorts (for guys).

It’s always a good idea to check the dress code of a specific venue beforehand. Or, if you purchased our concierge services, you can just double-check with your concierge agent before they make your reservation for you!

Is Medellín safe at night?

Medellín has made huge strides in recent years with regard to safety. However, it’s always a good idea to have your wits about you, as with any big city. When traveling, use a reputable cab app such as Uber or Didi, rather than a local taxi, especially at night, or talk to us and we’ll arrange a private driver for your whole trip. It will also allow you to skip the language barrier if you still need to brush up on your español

We recommend you don’t use Tinder to meet people. But if you are going to meet up with someone you met on Tinder or a dating app, get a photo of their ID beforehand and keep someone updated on your whereabouts, just in case.

Colombians are known for their phrase “no dar papaya”, which literally translates to “don’t give papaya”. What it means, however, is to avoid attracting unnecessary attention by flashing expensive jewelry or valuables. You can leave that at home and still look fly on the dance floor.

And remember that super fancy cocktail you bought? Don’t leave it unattended (it’s too good to go to waste, anyway). By taking these simple steps, you can enjoy the vibrant nightlife of Medellín with peace of mind.

Medellín is a city of hedonism and parties. So enjoy all the fun from a bird’s-eye view, on top of some of the best rooftop bars in Medellín. Whether you’re there for a boozy brunch, or dancing your heart out until the small hours, get some fresh air with those fresh vibes.

Top Tips for your Bachelor Party 

You may be wondering where the best place to stay is with your bachelor party in Medellin. El Poblado is a popular and convenient option, as it is right in the middle of the action. You can find many bachelor pads and penthouses in Poblado and near the famous Lleras Park. You can literally step right out of your apartment or villa and find some of the best bars, clubs and restaurants in the city. There are also some other more exclusive locations in Medellin, such as Alto de las Palmas. This sought-after neighborhood is a little further up the mountain and boasts stunning views over the valley. Its location allows for a little more privacy, and the absence of neighbors in some villas means that the parties can be bigger, better, and louder!

Private pool
Casa Serena, one of the villas we offer in Medellin

Speaking of accommodation; you will want to make sure you book accommodations early. The best villas and penthouses can get booked up, especially during peak season (generally December through March). We have exclusive access to elite properties that aren’t on AirBnB, so lock in your property with us as early as possible. Unlike Cartagena, where most of the touristic areas are condensed within a smaller radius, Medellin is a sprawling city. Transportation is an important consideration for you and your bachelor group. For big groups, hiring a bigger van that fits all of you can often be more cost-effective than paying for separate taxis.

With so many moving parts involved in planning your bachelor party in Medellin, it’s best to leave the bachelor party planning to the experts. We can arrange from the smallest detail to the most extravagant adventure. Our goal is to make sure you and your group have the best time ever, and that your bachelor party is memorable for all the right reasons.

Bachelor Party in Medellin or Cartagena?

After reading this, and our Cartagena Bachelor & Bachelorette Party Ideas page, you might be unsure of which destination is best for you. If you are looking for a Miami-style, beach vacay at a fraction of the cost, Cartagena is calling you. Think yacht parties, Colonial mansions, and private islands. If you prefer big-city vibes and cooler climes, head to Medellin. In Medellin, you can find a bigger variety of clubs and bars, more adventure activities, and more beautiful women. The choice is yours.

Whichever city you end up choosing. You and your group are sure to have the time of your lives. But don’t take our word for it! Check out a testimonial from one of our clients. This client used Two Travel to plan his friend’s Bachelor Party in Medellin. They were a large group of 14 people and wanted to pack as many activities into 4 days. Here’s an extract from his review:  

“If Two Travel is operating in a city I travel to, I will 100% be using them to make sure I have the best experience possible.
In addition to making sure all of the planned events were executed and handled with exceptional detail, we were lucky to have Daniel O. with us the entire trip. Especially on nights we went out and experienced the nightlife, having Daniel with us was priceless. If Daniel is with your crew, you basically have the most well-connected person in Medellin. He knows everyone in Medellin / Provenza area and regardless of your group’s vibe he knows the perfect spot. Outside of that, he was amazing at accommodating last-minute requests and making sure our group was safe at all times.”

Where is the nightlife in Medellín?

Medellin at night

El Poblado (Parque Lleras and Provenza)

From Hipster to High-Class, for a perfect Medellin night

The majority of the best clubs and bars in Medellin are located in el Poblado, a vast and affluent central neighborhood. As el Poblado is so big, you’ll want to be specific about where you’re headed, so make sure you keep this guide at hand. The famous Parque Lleras is a Medellín nightlife must-see. Here, you can find a ton of bars, restaurants, and clubs. It’s a great place to wander around to start your night and soak up the party mood. Parque Lleras is a tree-lined square filled with people, music, and mischief. It is the beating heart of Medellín´s nightlife, with a high density of clubs and bars. At night, the atmosphere is electric.

Our personal preference, however, is to go out to clubs a little more off the beaten track than right in central Lleras. For example, Provenza is a smaller locality, situated within el Poblado. Just a stone’s throw from Parque Lleras, Provenza is definitely the place to see and be seen. Expect classier vibes compared to Lleras. From hipster hole-in-the-wall bars to three-storey clubs, there is something for everyone in this trendy neighborhood. Prices are higher in some of the better clubs and bars compared to other neighborhoods, as good taste doesn’t come cheap. Provenza and Lleras, and everything in between, are often teeming with foreigners and Colombians alike, as they are some of the most touristic spots in Medellín, but for good reason. Here, you will find stylish decor and banging tunes, from Latino beats to EDM.

Laureles

La 70 – For an authentic Colombian fiesta

If you want something less gringo and more Colombian, head to Laureles. In La 70, or “La Setenta”, as it is locally known, you are sure to find a lot of color, lights, and dancing. Here, booze is cheaper and there are fewer foreigners. Step out of your comfort zone and take a salsa class. Two left feet? Not a problem, the paisas (locals from Medellín) are so friendly, you’re sure to find a friendly Colombiana (or Colombiano) to teach you some new moves. La 70 is the center of the Laureles party scene, and it’s an awesome place for bar-hopping. While some bars and clubs in Provenza and Poblado can give European / American vibes, parties in this neighborhood are undoubtedly Colombian.

Las Palmas

For a more exclusive vibe

If you want to try something different away from the masses, yet still experience some incredible local clubs, we highly recommend a night out in Las Palmas. This neighborhood is just a short taxi ride from El Poblado, yet you are sure to have a super fun nightlife experience away from the masses. Las Palmas, also an incredible location for exclusive villas and apartments, is at a higher altitude, so the temperature is cooler than in Poblado. Here, enjoy beautiful views of the Medellín valley at night as the entire city sparkles beneath you.

Okay, so now we know the hottest areas to head in Medellin at night. But where exactly should you go? What follows is just a few of our Medellín nightlife recommendations. If you want a whole weekend planned, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Our Medellín Nightlife Recommendations

Salón Amador

A truly unmissable experience in Medellin. Salón Amador is the flagship club for electronic music in Medellín, where house, indie dance, techno and many other forms of dance music reel in punters from across the region. They host big events with famous DJs, both nationally and internationally-known. Salón Amador even plans to launch its own record label to promote local talent. The light shows and intimate feel together with flawless playlists and perfectly mixed drinks make for an unforgettable night. 

Where?:  Calle 10 #40-30, El Poblado

Salón Amador, Medellin nightclub

Bolívar

Bolívar Medellín brings the heat and sabrosura of the Caribbean to the mountains of Medellín. Inspired by 1940s Cuba and 1980s Miami, Bolívar is a treat for the senses. Dance your socks off to reggaeton, dancehall, champeta, trap, and every last Latin hit on the charts. And if you can’t dance, you can find some beautiful and scantily-clad professional dancers who have got all the moves. Grab a tropical cocktail, join us on one of the most beautiful dance floors in town, and feel the Caribbean heat in el Poblado.

Local tip: There’s no cover charge on Thursday nights, which makes it a great option for mid-week debauchery.

Where?: Cra. 36 # 10-38, El Poblado

Bolivar nightclub, Medellín

Vintrash Bar

Vintrash is an upcycled club providing four floors of fun. Right in the heart of Provenza, it attracts a good mix of locals and foreigners. You can enjoy various ambiances; from indie, to Latin, to electronic. Head up to the rooftop to cool down after a long night’s dancing. They also serve food, which makes it a great place to start your night and line your stomach before a heavy night out on the town. We love taking bachelor and bachelorette groups to Vintrash because it’s a great place to go wild, and a guaranteed fun night out.

Where?: Cra. 35 #8A-39, El Poblado (Provenza)

Vintrash, Poblado Medellin

Gusto Nightclub

Located right in central Lleras Park, Gusto nightclub will never disappoint. Nightly escapades at Gusto involve laser light shows, beautiful girls and expertly-poured drinks. It is a great option in this super touristic area that doesn’t feel like a tourist trap.

Where?: Calle 9A, Parque Lleras #38-26

Gusto Nightclub, Medellín

Envy Rooftop

Before heading to Gusto Nightclub, however, make sure you have a sunset cocktail or two at Envy Rooftop. This stunning rooftop has an aquarium-style pool where you can cool off in the afternoon sunshine. It boats gorgeous views of the city, and has light Asian style appetizers which go down perfectly with pre-drinks. They have a live DJ and their lounge playlists are perfect for chilling before a big night out. 

Where?: Calle 9a #37-16, El Poblado

Envy Rooftop, Medellin nightlife

La Oculta Medellín

Do you ever wonder where the young locals go to party? What if we told you it was in a speakeasy-style joint, hidden behind a bookshelf? La Oculta is, like its name suggests, hard to find, but a total gem once you get in. This intimate club is small but perfectly formed, and its glittering chandelier adds a boujee touch to your night. Great to share a bottle of whiskey with a group of friends and listen to local Latin beats. 

Where?: Cra. 35 #7-114, El Poblado (Provenza)

La Tienda de la 70

Although “tienda” technically translates to store, La Tienda de la 70 is so much more than a neighborhood store. With quintessentially paisa decorations and music, coming to this bar is more of a cultural experience than anything else. Embrace the stereotype and order a bottle of aguardiente – or guaro as the locals call it – and you’ll find yourself dancing on the tables in no time.

Where?: Bulevar Libertadores De América (Carrera 70), Laureles, Medellín

La Chula Medellin – Las Palmas

Grab a big group of friends, get plenty of drinks in, and prepare to have the time of your life at La Chula. This Mexican-themed bar-cum-club, or “Fonda”, as referred to by Medellín locals, will transport you to the loudest and most colorful corner of Mexico, right in the heart of Las Palmas. Down a shot of tequila (or three) while you listen to live mariachis in this awesome spot. If you want to party with locals, La Chula is the place to go. Right next door to La Chula, you can also find La Chula Urbana, where they play all the latest reggaeton hits. We like moving from one club to another to live the local experience.

Where?: KM 3, via Las Palmas

If you’re ready to plan your escape to Cartagena, we’ve got you covered. This list of the top six ways to party in Cartagena includes the best places to stay, what to do, and where to eat.

Stay in a Private Villa

While there are a lot of premium hotels and resorts available in Cartagena, we think you’ll enjoy your bachelor trip a lot more if you rent a private villa for your entire entourage.

Many villas feature exquisite 19th century architecture, private pools, rooftop views, and even dedicated staff.

Stay in a Private Villa

If you book a villa with Two Travel, we will offer you a private chef to prepare delicious meals for you and your guests during your stay, a full staff to provide daily cleaning, a professional masseuse, and a dedicated concierge to take care of any last-minute needs. At your request, you can also have a bodyguard to accompany you around the town.

No need to worry about spending hours planning a bachelorette party. We’ll take care of all the details, so you can just enjoy bonding with friends and visiting Cartagena!

Whether you want to spend your time exploring all that Cartagena has to offer or just relaxing by the pool in your secluded courtyard— a private villa is the perfect home base for your bachelor or bachelorette party!

Rent a Private Island

If you really want to treat yourself to something special, you may want to consider renting one of the many private Cartagena islands!

Our top choice for renting an island are the Rosario Islands, Cartagena – about an hour off shore of the city. These islands offer secluded white sand beaches, exotic palm trees, crystal blue waters, and stunning sunsets.

Surrounded by coral reefs, the Rosario Islands are as close as you can get to heaven on earth. They’re the perfect backdrop for a tropical bachelorette party, an unforgettable stag weekend, or even a joint bachelor and bachelorette party.

Isla Fragata

The best thing about renting a private island? It’s all yours, so you can do whatever you like, whenever you like. Throw a giant party. Stroll through tropical gardens. Relax on the beach. Go kayaking or jet skiing on the ocean.

Our private island rentals accommodate from 10 guests and come with a full staff who will cook and clean daily. All the groceries you need for your stay will be delivered to the island before you arrive. And each day you’ll get a delivery of fresh-caught fish of the day! We’ll take care of everything for you, so you can just spend your time enjoying your Cartagena vacation.

Take a Yacht to the Islands

Rent a Boat in Cartagena

Whether you stay at a private villa, rent an island, or opt for a resort vacation, there’s one Cartagena activity you definitely won’t want to miss out on: yachting!

If you want to enjoy a good party while taking in some breathtaking sights, renting a private yacht, speedboat or catamaran is the perfect solution for your stagette or bucks party.

As Cartagena is located right on the southern coast of the Caribbean Sea, you can board your boat directly from the Old Town. Then spend the day exploring the islands and coral reefs of Cholon, Playa Blanca, and the Islas de Rosario.

Finish the day off by watching the majesty of a Caribbean sunset on board before heading back to shore.

Too busy to think about preparing food while partying? If you rent a yacht with Two Travel, we can provide catering onboard. We’ll make sure you have everything you need to make the most of your day on the sea! Find out more about the best way to explore the islands.

Go Clubbing

If you’re idea of the perfect bachelor party entertainment involves drinking and nightlife, Cartagena has some fantastic options! This city boasts a vibrant club scene complete with craft cocktails, dancing, and even live music for some special events.

If you want to enjoy some classic clubbing in a stylish setting, try out La Jugada. This club features up-cycled interiors, craft cocktails, and a dance-ready playlist. If you book a table here, come prepared for a stylish crowd and be sure to dress with an appropriate amount of class. It’s a local favorite, so spending an evening at La Jugada is a great way to experience the culture of Cartagena.

Cocktails and Clubbing in Cartagena

For an unforgettable and unique nightlife experience, head to Alquímico in the Historic Walled City. This innovative club features inventive cocktails, liquor infusions, and a menu that draws from local recipes and fresh ingredients. The menu isn’t the only reason to visit Alquimico, though! This club features a gorgeous art-deco cocktail bar on the ground floor, a roof terrace with city views upstairs, and a DJ curated playlist that features a variety of trendy music styles.

The newest (and coolest) kid on the block right now is Casa Cruxada. By day, you’ll find delicious food in the two restaurants on the ground floor. By night, the place is transformed with additional floors and rooms opened up for you to explore. This club / bar / restaurant is in an enormous, crumbling Colonial building that feels like it is coming apart at the seams, in the best way possible. Here, you can hear live DJs play minimal techno beats and deep house.  

Having difficulties booking a table at your chosen club? Looking for VIP access to the best tables? If this is your scenario, we can help you out! At Two Travel, we have established relationships with the owners and managers of the top clubs and restaurants. We’re happy to get our clients VIP access, no cover charge, and even sold-out reservations that aren’t available online or by phone

Contact us to find out more about VIP access to the top Cartagena clubs today!

Dine out – best for group parties

No Cartagena bachelorette or bachelor party would be complete without a dining experience at one of the city’s famous restaurants.

Lobo de mar

Visit Carmen for an intimate dining experience with a menu that features contemporary cuisine and authentic Colombian flavors. At Lobo Del Mar, you’ll find innovative cocktails and gastronomic creations inspired by classic Caribbean flavors and locally sourced seasonal ingredients.

For a bachelor or bachelorette party, we also love La Unica for a quality Mexican experience. It has a fun, playful vibe and has great music – from in-house DJs to live mariachi bands – incredible food, and of course a range of tequilas. Or head up to the rooftop at Buena Vida. It’s a stylish but truly Cartagenero seafood restaurant with an impressive cocktail menu, wonderful food and live music from some excellent local bands and DJs.

A Cartagena Bachelor Party or Bachelorette Beach Day

Why wait until the evening to party? In Cartagena, you can dance at any time of day or night, and we love to dance on the beach! Don’t stay on the mainland. The best beaches and beach clubs are on nearby Tierra Bomba island or further out in the Rosario Islands.

For bachelorettes, try Blue Apple Beach – not only is the food and drink spectacular, but the service is always special for brides to be. If you want a dance lesson, they will always say yes. Lounge by the pool or on the beach, and if you have time, get a massage from the in-house masseuse team. You will not leave disappointed.

For bachelors, head out to Bora Bora in the Rosario Islands. Every day is a party at this famous and very popular beach club. Another option is to take an ATV tour in north Cartagena along some of the longest beaches in the city. It’s the perfect morning adventure activity for any bachelor group spending the weekend in Cartagena.

There you have it — our top six tips to make your Cartagena party unforgettable! And if you’re feeling overwhelmed planning it, or just want to relax and not deal with all the hassle of getting people to the right place at the right time – call us!
