Not actually sure if they do food here (didnt ask!) but this place is a big open air nightclub in Girardot on top of the El Oasis shopping centre.

Its the biggest and most popular nightclub in Girardot. Has an entrance fee of $20,000 (10 USD) and drinks are reasonably priced for a popular club in a tourist location. About $90,000 for a decent bottle of white wine or around $12,000 for a bottle of beer.

The music was a mix between latin salsa and western club music. So a bit for everyone really. Was a lot a fun and had a great night. The other people in the club were mainly people enjoying a weekend away from Bogota. The club is pricey by Colombian standards so the clientele tend to be well-off Colombians from Bogota.

I was told by a friend that the service would be very poor and this turned out to be true. A few slow obese male waiters (ours looked like a latin version of the singer from Smashmouth) amble slothlike around the club, so best to order a few bottles at a time and order more before you run out. When the club got packed it was taking 20 minutes to get more wine and beers.

The club is very safe and despite being the only foreigners in there we had a great time especially as we drew the curiosity of the Colombian girls! The neighbourood around the club is ok but you wouldnt want to stray too far. Best advice is to arrive by taxi and leave by taxi. Obviously with this being Colombia try not to get in a taxi by yourself and never accept a taxi with someone already accompanying the driver in the passenger seat.

At the weekend dont arrive before 10pm or the club will be empty. We arrived at 8pm and sat in a deserted club for two hours, although this did give us time to get some serious drinking in (despite the very slow service when we were the only ones in the club!).

Also as the club is open air if it rains you will get wet! There are a few patio umbrellas but nothing to keep you dry.

There is also a large seating and dancing area in a shallow swimming pool! So arrive in sandals if thats where you want to sit.

Overall a fun evening.
