Colombia's Transformation Means Luxurious Experiences In Cartagena & Bogota

High end shopping awaits your pesos, such as Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Bulgari and the Colombian native of luxury leather goods, Mario Hernández. Several malls surround the area as well; the best one is the Andino Mall, which houses many of the above-mentioned shops. Nightlife ranges from the local Euro-style pub chain of the Bogotá Beer Company to rooftop lounges and exclusive clubs providing all styles of music. Calles 85 or 82 would be a good start to explore the nightlife and varying restaurants (such as the famed four-floored vivacious Andres D.C), but if you're a traveling foodie, Zona G’s your go to.

Standing for gourmet, Zona G lies between Calle 65-71 and Carrera 7-3, and is just north of Chapinero Alto (the LGBT district). The most prestigious restaurants of the city are in Zona G, which covers a large range of cuisines: Emilia Romagna (Italian) Astrid y Gaston (Peruvian), Criterion (Pairisian), and even a Tony Roma's.
