Townhouse Rooftop

If you are looking for an alternative to the touristy Café del Mar for the sunset, check out the Townhouse Rooftop. The view and atmosphere can’t be beat.  Their cocktails and tapas are not to be missed!

El Baron

El Baron makes the best cocktails in Cartagena! Watching the bartenders make the cocktails is like watching an artist make a masterpiece. This is the only place you will get the speakeasy feel where mixologists make your drinks and not bartenders.

Members Only

Something new for Cartagena: Jazz & Martinis!  Opens at 9PM. Closed Tuesday & Wednesdays.

La Jugada

The same owners as La Movida, La Jugada offers another great option for nightlife in Cartagena.  The weekdays are usually not to busy so you can enjoy a cocktail on the roof terrace or take in the beautiful decor on the different floors.  Although most people order the Cartagena classic Gin & Tonic, their talented bartenders make delicious creative cocktails. Make sure to get there before 11:30PM to beat the long line on Fridays & Saturdays.

The Clock Pub

A great place to get a beer & a burger and watch a game (they have NFL Sunday Ticket).  Located in Plaza de los Coches, the area is always busy and so is their bar. They usually have very talented singers performing on Friday & Saturday nights starting around 10:30.

Media Luna Hostel

This is the place to go if you want to go out on a Wednesday.  Their Wednesday night party is fun but expect the hostel crowd.
