Medellin Pub Crawl- What to do in Medellin at night?
The nightlife here is exuberant, happy, carefree, and of course, quite hot. In Medellin, the hips are circled excessively to reggaeton, salsa, merengue, bachata, and of course, vallenato rhythms.
There is a lot of Aguardiente and Ron de Medellin flowing with friends or family while preferably moving on the dance floor with a dance partner.
Medellin is known for being an innovative city and for the warmth of its people, the beauty of its landscapes, and its history of development. The city has a wide variety of establishments with different atmospheres (there is something for everyone), at different prices and plans.
The “pink zone” is the party area in Medellín. It is located in the El Poblado district.
It is the city’s biggest party benchmark and is well known because you will find everything from clubs and bars to cafes and restaurants here. Its landmark is Lleras Park, and you will find the party places around it and in its many streets.
There, you will find some very cheap places as well as some quite expensive. If you go up to 10th street, you will come to Sector Provenza, where you will find a catering area, and if you go down, you will find Parque El Poblado, popularly known as “el PP. ”
Barrio Colombia is the perfect area for an exclusive party.
An area specially dedicated to nightlife near Industrial metro station and several of Medellín’s most exclusive nightclubs is quite large as there is much more space than in some of Lleras’ nightclubs.
It can be a lot more expensive, and the venue is a bit more remote, but it is an option for those looking for a different experience in larger nightclubs. You will also find bars and a few restaurants.

Nightlife in Medellin is famous for impressing tourists as there is an impressive number of restaurants, bars, and nightclubs spread all over the city. Moreover, some events and activities occur in these places, attracting more and more tourists year after year.
To enjoy Medellin’s nightlife, go out for a walk or go “party,” as they say in Colombia. It is best to head to Lleras Park, the point with the most significant number of recognized bars. Although many people visit the area on weekdays, most of the bars are full of people on the weekends.
This area is open to both workers for lunch and visitors who want to go out at night because Medellin’s nightlife is friendly. The weather is nice, and you can display the latest fashion trends and skin, very comfortable for women of Medellin.
Many of these bars have professional dancers with programs and choreographed spectacular dance sets, worth going just to see the dancers.
At the events held in the city, the bars are filled with tourists, who enjoy food and alcohol with friends.
Some sites also do their own nightlife activities to invite people out at night. For example, there are dance performances, concerts or Caribbean music in the streets, etc. These events are advertised in local newspapers and on websites.
Other activities are planned directly by the local government to encourage culture, attract tourists’ attention, and make them feel safe to go out at night in Medellin.
Most bars open at 6 or 7 p.m. And many of them are open until the middle of the night. There are only a few bars and clubs that are open until dawn.
Other nightlife places are for shopping, as the Via Primavera, a street near Lleras Park, where you can see the windows, buy clothes for fashion, and eat sandwiches.
This street is open until the middle of the night on weekends.
Nightlife in Medellin is also popular in parks throughout the city, during religious festivals and traditional festivals such as the Feria de Los Flores.
Colombians like to party often and for a long time. Preferably with lots of aguardiente and rum, salsa and vallenato.
Here you can find everything to do with nightlife in Medellin and Colombia with some of the best bars and clubs at a glance:
- Calle 9: One of the local’s favorite clubs. Especially good on Thursdays, as not that crowded. It’s mostly electro. There is also live music on Saturdays.
- Blue: Mostly alternative music plays here. Always 80s on the last Saturday of the month.
- Envy is located on the 17th floor. There is a pool in the middle of the club. Unfortunately, there is little space to dance, and drink prices are high.
