Business trips can pass by in the blink of an eye. On your next #BogotaNonStop experience get to know the city like a local! Follow our guide to making your business trip to Bogota as enjoyable as possible.
Closing the Deal
Impress colleagues with your local knowledge of Enano, the small secret bar at the back of Bandido Restaurant. Most locals don’t know about this unique spot that is reminiscent of old-school bars with dark wood, dim lighting, professional cocktails and great food.
Dinner is an important ritual of any successful business negotiation. In Bogota, there are two fantastic restaurants you can visit.
For a more formal environment and elegant food, Black Bear is the right choice. Not only is the food delicious, the bar is famous for its unique beverage blends. Ask for bartender Gabriel Lowe and let him surprise you.
If, on the other hand, you’re looking for a more casual spot, we suggest you visit Salvo Patria. Not only will you find local gourmet cuisine, you’ll also find a lively and vibrant setting evocative of a Brooklyn spot. The cherry on the top at this indie place is the Tomáte de Árbol y Mora dessert.
Moving around Bogota can be a source of stress for foreigners due to the heavy traffic. To travel like a local, always leave with an extra 40 to 60 minute window and use apps like Tappsi to get a certified cab that accepts both credit cards and cash.
If you’re looking for great networking opportunities to expand your business reach, MeetUp.com is a great place to start. There are hundreds of specialized networking groups classified by industry or type of business so you can find the perfect fit. You can also find cultural and language exchange groups if you’re looking to improve your Spanish for your next #BogotaNonStop business trip.
After a long week of work, you and your colleagues deserve some rest and relaxation. Head over to Chairama Spa and indulge in a Páramo Relajante massage known for its ability to free tension from muscle tissue. You can also choose from their wide variety of other treatments to unwind before leaving the beautiful Colombian capital.
Bogota is a city with boundless enthusiasm and an appetite for new experiences. While your time here may be limited to meetings and dinners, there are always new places to explore and enjoy. We hope to take you there on your next #BogotaNonStop.
