Bogotá Beer Company (BBC)

by Alex on Nov.01, 2010, under What to do in Bogotá

BBC is a Bogotá-based brewery with a number of very popular pub-styled bars throughout town. Although a welcome change from the very average lager sold as standard in Colombia, sadly, aficionados will recognise that the beer is not great beer (it is though better than Colón beer in which I think they put actual colons). The best bet for beer lovers is to drink black and tan, a mixture of the porter and red – this tip was given to me by a beer expert who makes what must be the best beer in Colombia. The BBC bars that I’ve been to usually have a great atmosphere and popping in for a pint can often end up in drinking until closing time, just like back home…

La Villa is the latest club to open in Bogotá, and the best if you are looking for somewhere playing western music, with Armandito, famous DJ of Armando Records plays on Friday nights

The décor is vintage, and the fit out Mediterranean with plenty of terrace space, antique furniture, a fountain and other cool features. Clientèle are friendly as are the various owners, some of whom are there most nights and will do their best to make you feel welcome
