What do people in Medellín eat?

Paisa (local to Medellin) cuisine is famous all over Colombia. The most famous dish is the Bandeja Paisa, which is a mixed platter of some of the most delicious local foods. It consists of rice, beans, avocado, chicharron (fried pork belly), sausage, mincemeat, sweet plantain, and a fried egg. After all, calories don’t count when you’re on vacation!

You can’t leave Medellin without trying an arepa, a delicious and versatile corn patty, served with pretty much everything. Mondongo is a traditional soup packed full of potatoes, yucca, meat, and tripe. Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it; Paisas pride themselves on their mondongo recipe!

There’s no better way to start your day than with a delicious calentado, which literally means “heated up”. Yup, you guessed it, it’s last night’s rice-based leftovers, with a fried egg on top. The breakfast of champions! Many of Medellin’s best restaurants have adopted and adapted these traditional foods to put a contemporary and exclusive twist on them.

Home is slow-cooked meat. Home is big plates of delicious food to share. Head chef Laura Londoño has done an incredible job in creating a warm and inviting environment in her restaurant Oci.Mde. Families, groups of friends, and couples gather around tables piled high with food. They share mouthwatering dishes such as the 5-hour braised pork, or short ribs 12 hours braised in lemon and chili caramel sauce. It tastes like comfort food, but still packs enough punch with local Colombian ingredients and innovative techniques to keep you on your toes. Londoño trained at a 3-Michelin star restaurant in Paris, and brought her many years of knowledge to her home country to create her own concept. Although Oci.Mde´s speciality is slow-cooked meat, vegetarian and vegan options are available.

Its our favorite choice for Peruvian-Japanese fusion. Dishes at Panka are colorful and flavorful, and a wide variety of textures and techniques are used.

Medellín Nightlife – the Best Places to Party in Medellin

Medellin apartment

There has never been a better time to visit Medellín, Colombia. This vibrant, international city has recently been awarded 3rd best city to visit in the world by Time Out magazine. While we are proud of this achievement, we are by no means surprised. Alongside impressive architecture, sleek startups, and incredible gastronomy, Medellín’s nightlife has been internationally recognized as being one of the best in the world. 

Medellín is the birthplace of famous Reggaeton and pop artists J Balvin, Karol G, and Maluma. Next time you find yourself singing along to “Provenza” by Karol G, you’ll realize that she is singing about the famous party neighborhood frequented by the young and beautiful crowd of Medellín. There is so much to be discovered in Medellín at night. But with so many bars and clubs in Medellín, it’s often difficult to know where to head first.

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 Oculta Medellin

Finding out secret passwords to get into hidden clubs is so much easier when you book our nighttime concierge services! Enjoy everything that Medellín’s nightlife has to offer – Click below to get a quote and a key to the city.

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

La chula

With a seemingly infinite list of options to choose from, Medellin nightlife is something that has to be experienced first hand. If your night ends queueing in Provenza to buy hot, freshly-made empanadas to soak up all the booze before heading back to your private villa, you know it’s been a successful night. We truly can’t wait to show you the biggest and best of this incredible city and its nightlife, in all its hedonistic glory.

Whether you take a guided walking tour or stroll through the streets with your travelling companion, El Centro is the ideal place to learn about Medellin’s history, culture, and architecture. Downtown is bustling and active, and by day this district is very safe. However, it’s important to travel in pairs or with a group and stay off the streets at night. We recommend making a point of touring El Centro on your first full day in Medellin, as it will help you get your bearings and make the most of the rest of your trip!

Botero in Medellin

Plaza Botero & Museo de Antioquia

Be sure to enjoy some of Fernando Botero’s internationally acclaimed sculptures and paintings during your stay in Medellin! A native to Medellin, Botero patronized his home town with an impressive collection of stunning artwork.

Visit the Plaza Botero to admire his colossal human statues, or wander around the Museo de Antioquia to see some of his most famous paintings. Located side by side in the city center, these two Medellin attractions have free admission!

Jardin Botanico

Located north of the city center in Zona Norte, the botanical gardens of Medellin are worth taking a bit of time to see. Among an impressive array of native plants and animals, these gardens feature a butterfly house and an orchid exhibit. Throughout the gardens, you’ll find many places to sit down and admire the exotic flora and fauna. Completely free to enter, the Jardin Botanico is a fantastic place to take a break from sightseeing and relax for a few hours!

Parque Arvi

Brimming with hiking trails, fresh water streams, and picnic areas, Parque Arvi is sure to be one of the most memorable destinations on your journey. As one of the region’s largest nature reserves, this park is the perfect spot to enjoy the tranquility of nature and observe wildlife. The easiest way to access Parque Arvi is by taking the Medellin metro cable, but you can also hike up to it if you’re feeling adventurous!

Metro Cable

The Metro Cable connects the valley-based hub of the city to some of the surrounding mountain communities. The city’s innovative metro system offers more than just easy accessibility around Medellin, though. Whether you take the metro cable all the way up to Parque Arvi or just to a hillside town, you’ll enjoy unparalleled sights of Medellin and the surrounding countryside!

Pueblito Paisa

Constructed to resemble a traditional small pueblo, or village, Pueblito Paisa is located right in the center of Medellin on Cerro Nutibara. From this elevated hill, you can enjoy incredible views of the city and surrounding countryside. Pueblito Paisa is worth visiting for more than just the vantage point though! Home to a variety of quaint shops, this village is an excellent place to pick up a souvenir of your travels.

Parque Explora

An interactive science museum located just next to the botanical gardens in Zona Norte, Parque Explora is a fun and educational choice for a free afternoon! Visitors can partake in interactive science programs or gaze at the exotic animals hosted in the large indoor aquarium. Full of activities for the entire family, this museum is a must-see for anyone traveling with kids!

Guatapé

El Peñón de Guatapé

For anyone staying in Medellin over an extended visit, the small pueblo of Guatapé is a must-see. Just two hours away by bus, the main attraction in this beautiful lake town is El Peñón de Guatapé, a granite monolith.

If you’re looking for a diverse selection of ethnic cuisines, visit the gastronomic market of Mercado del Rio. With more than fifty food vendors located in one building, you’ll be sure to find something that suits your taste!

Medellin Coffee Shops

Colombia is one of the world’s largest coffee producers, and many of the beans come from the region of Antioquia surrounding Medellin. The best place to go for freshly harvested, roasted, and brewed Colombian coffee is the trendy neighborhood of El Poblado. Pergamino coffee shop has a large selection of hot and cold beverages, made almost entirely from beans grown on the owner’s family farm. We’d also recommend sampling craft coffee brews at Café Velvet, and Urbania Café, also in El Poblado. Each of these coffee shops offers bags of regional beans at unbeatable prices, so you can even take home an aromatic blend as a souvenir of your journey!
