  1. Dancefree

So, one of the tough things about coming to Colombia and going out partying if you’re a foreigner is that most Colombians are great dancers and are probably capable of putting you to shame on the dance floor.  However, if you are not quite as good, this next place on this list of best bars in Medellín is worth checking out.

Dancefree offers group and individual dance lessons during the day.  Then in the evening, it turns into one of the city’s most popular dance clubs.  That way you can learn a few steps during the day and show them off later that evening.

  1. Calle 9+1

For those looking a little less for Latin music like salsa and bachata or the 80s and 90s rock hits you’ll hear at Trilogia, consider heading over to Calle 9+1 for house and electronic music.  There are often guest DJs, and there is usually a long line outside the door for this popular Medellín bar.

Located near Parque Lleras, Calle 9+1 is also known for its relaxed dress code and hipster vibe.  It’s a great place to go out in Medellín for something a bit different.
