Oh la! La Puerta
Not only it is one of the best bars to dance in Santa Marta, but also one of the oldest. It has been in the city for years and its clientele do not decrease at all, on the contrary, it keeps growing. This place is preferred by locals and foreigners, and parties can become quite wild especially in peak season. It is the best example of an old house turned into a nightclub; it preserves all the original rooms, only now they are used for the purpose of enjoying and moving the body at the rhythm of the best Caribbean music. There are tables in the patio where you can sit and enjoy a delicious mojito with your friends, which by the way, are exceptional.
There is no air conditioning, but that is no excuse to have a great night in one of the best clubs in Santa Marta. Besides, its decoration is amazing; it is full of pictures with irreverent messages and inciters that invite you not to take life seriously and enjoy as if there were no tomorrow.
Address: Cl 17 # 2-29.
A fancy version of Brisa Loca. It is a terrace with a lot of styles; parties can get out of control and it is always full of people, so at a certain time at night, they do not let anyone else get in to avoid it becoming overcrowded. The music is rather a crossover, mostly Colombian rhythms and it is usually more frequented by locals.

Barbas Disco Bar
This is a very particular club. It looks quite normal on the outside but once you get inside, it is completely different; brick walls decorated with illuminated paintings that show a select gallery of famous bearded people like Abraham Lincoln, Ernest Hemingway, Rasputin and many more who are witnesses of the famous parties of this place.
There is a backyard with a centenarian tree with branches that look like barbas (beards), hence its name. At the beginning of the night soft music is played, so people can get comfortable, drink a cocktail and talk to each other, then, as the night goes on, the fiesta begins and it gets crowded; also you can go up to the terrace and have a great time too. Do not worry, you don?t need a beard to get in, but there is a dress code. As long as you have a good attitude and enjoy crossover music, you cannot miss one of the best places to dance in Santa Marta.
