We already talked about what to do and where to eat in Medellín, but now it's the moment to talk about where to dance and to have party.
Medellin is known as a city with a very active night life. That is, people from Medellín go out a lot in the nights to dance, drink something and have fun. Moreover, there are many options of places to have a party in the city, from large discos to Fondas (establishments decorated with traditional Paisa objects and where music like Guascas, Vallenatos, Rancheras and Popular music are played on). According to your likes and dislikes, you choose the place more appropriate for you.
Next, we are going to mention the main avenues and places where the most popular discos, bars and fondas are, both in Medellín and in El Valle de Aburrá.
- Parque Lleras (Lleras park): Around this park there are many discos, bars and fondas to drink something an get a lot of fun. This place is located in El Poblado and is called Zona Rosa of Medellín because it is "the most prestigious" place of the city to eat and to party.
