Places to Eat and Activities

The Wedding Website of Christopher Pertsch and Chase Lindsay Lis
From the Washington Post - Bogota will take your breath away — perhaps literally, given its perch as one of the highest-altitude world capitals, about 8,600 feet above sea level. Up here is where Nobel laureate Gabriel García Márquez once studied, where locals start conversations with tourists just to practice their English, where the nightlife buzzes to the sounds of the Caribbean, techno music, rock, Mexican mariachis and the surrounding Andes. Colombia’s capital is elevated but not isolated: The food-and-drink culture, you will find, spans not only South American cuisine, but also Indian, Japanese, Lebanese and more.
La Candelaria

La Candelaria

Bogotá, Bogotá, Colombia

La Candelaria is Bogota’s historic and cultural center, where you can enjoy art, history, architecture, and gastronomy. You can visit amazing museums, admire colonial and graffiti art, and experience the vibrant life of the neighborhood

Monserrate

Salt Cathedral Zipaquira

Salt Cathedral Zipaquira

Parque De La Sal, Zipaquirá, Cundinamarca 250252, Colombia

The salt mine of Zipaquira is a wonder of history, culture, and spirituality. It has the Salt Cathedral, an underground church with salt sculptures and carvings. It also has a museum and an archaeological park about the Muisca culture. You can get there by car, bus, or train from Bogota. It is a unique and memorable place to visit in Colombia. Chase has never been cause he doesn’t like caves…

If you have ever wanted to learn how to salsa, your visit to Bogota is the perfect time. The school Punta y Taco offers super-fun classes by the hour, where you can dance with local students every day except Sunday.

Visit the Gold Museum (Museo del Oro)Ad1, which displays a stunning collection of pre-Hispanic gold artifacts and tells the story of Colombia’s indigenous cultures.

Traditional Colombian Food - Chichería Demente

Traditional Colombian Food - Chichería Demente

##15-08 Calle 69, Bogotá, Bogotá 111221, Colombia

Specializing in popular Colombian fare, this bar and grill off the tourist path is a good place to sample neighborhood cuisine and traditional dishes to “picar,” or pick at with toothpicks. One favorite is the morcilla, a blood sausage stuffed with rice and cooked with peas, banana, avocado and potatoes. They also specialize in cocktails; I would recommend a Lupita, based on Ancho Reyes, the spicy Mexican liqueur.

Lunch or Dinner - Llorente Restaurante Bar

Lunch or Dinner - Llorente Restaurante Bar

# 69-07 Carrera 9, Bogotá, Cundinamarca 110231, Colombia

An old three-story house has been turned into this restaurant with classic European decor, live bands playing classic rock, and dim lighting, making it a good spot for couples. Located in the Quinta Camacho neighborhood, Llorente was named Best New Restaurant La Barra 2019, a Colombian food-and-drink award. Consider the mercado pesca: the catch of the day with sweetcorn sauce, grilled asparagus and Asian mixed greens. BTW: Try a Patria Boba cocktail, made with vodka, passion fruit and ginger extract, jalapeño tincture, lemon juice, and soda.

Dinner - Andrés D.C. Bogotá

Dinner - Andrés D.C. Bogotá

12 -21 Calle 82, Bogotá, Bogotá 110221, Colombia

Nobel laureate Gabriel García Márquez once said that in Colombia, “any gathering of more than six people, regardless of class or the hour, is doomed to turn into a dance.” That certainly holds true at uniquely Colombian Andrés Carne de Res. It’s famous for its lomo al trapo — a steak filet baked in a cloth crusted in salt, then sliced open — but each evening, the vast restaurant transforms into something resembling a disco. Brass bands go from table to table, and the staff fling yellow paper butterflies in the air, a reference to Marquez’s iconic novel “One Hundred Years of Solitude.” BTW: Tell the restaurant it´s your birthday, and they will send a live band to your table and give you a sash.

French Cuisine - La Brasserie

French Cuisine - La Brasserie

85-35 Carrera 13, Bogotá, Cundinamarca 110221, Colombia

Christopher's dad favorite restaurant. All food here is excellent. We recommending trying their French onion soup, steaks, and French fries

Cocktails - Apache

Cocktails - Apache

93-77 Carrera 11, Bogotá, Bogotá 110221, Colombia

You don’t need to be a guest of the Click Clack Hotel to enjoy its 10th-floor bar. Apache boasts one of the best views of Bogota, perfect for sunsets with a glass of wine in hand. There is a good selection of rock music from the ’50s to the ’80s, and DJs spin at night from Wednesday to Saturday, with the atmosphere heating up at 9 p.m. The menu has 10 types of hamburgers, classic cocktails and house specialties such as the Margarita Apache, a concoction made with tequila, jalapeños, lemon, syrup, bitters and smoked salt. BTW: The decorations are inspired by U.S. Native American culture.

DI LUCCA

# 85-32 Carrera 13, Bogotá, Cundinamarca 110221, Colombia

"El restaurante Di Lucca tiene más de 26 años y sigue siendo uno de los restaurantes italianos más tradicionales y reconocidos en Bogotá." Di Lucca is a great Italian spot, recommended to anyone who comes to the wedding!

Restaurante El Cielo

Restaurante El Cielo

#4 - 47 Calle 70, Bogotá, Bogotá 110231, Colombia

Try Colombian food but prepared by a Michelin star chef. This is the same restaurant some of you may have seen at Union Market in Washington, DC. This place offers the same experiences, such as eating melted chocolate with your hands, as the restaurant in DC, but for a quarter of the price.
