If you prefer your historical event location in Bogotá to celebrate a more humble origin, then you’ll love this next raw event venue.

Built at the beginning of the 20th century, this space used to be a farm. The central courtyard remains intact in all its glory, and so too does the original brickwork. Meaning you can see the historical vibes right in front of your eyes.

However, what makes this such a dynamic and exciting space are the subtle contemporary innovations that have been installed. Some of the highlights include the beautiful skylight, street art, and neo-vintage furnishings.

The food here specialises in grilled and stone-cooked meats and vegetables. Plus, all their ingredients are locally grown from seasonal and small-scale sustainable farms, meaning the food is not only tasty, but it’s good for the environment!

And as well as the private bar, you’ll have great sound equipment, TVs, and excellent WiFi.
