4 Best Places Singles 30Plus Professional Meet-Mingle Medellin Colombia

Located in Rio Sur Medellin

Address

Rio Sur Carrera 43a No. 6 Sur 26 local 132

What we love

We love the La Bolsa’s location. It is located inside of Centro Comercial Rio Sur. Located in the heart of the Medellin financial district. Hence you will meet many finance, corporate, legal and medical people. Rio Sur offers free parking which brings a high end crowd. Remember people with cars have jobs. And have money. They won’t start asking for loans after the third date.

The food and drinks are really good in La Bolsa. They have a bar. Let me repeat they have a bar. A lot of places don’t offer a bar which makes it difficult to meet other single people. La Bolsa has a huge bar. However you must choose wisely as the seats fill up. And sometimes you could get stuck somewhere in no mans land. The Bolsa specials are mostly for women sitting at the bar.

Mature crowd great location

Best nights to visit

The best nights to visit are Thursday and Friday. Thursday a lot of co-workers come out after work for drinks and dinner. They sometimes stay out late. On Friday you see a lot of small groups of women sitting at the bar. Although this is a restaurant the second floor has a DJ, live band and a dance floor. Once you meet someone downstairs you can go upstairs to continue the night. We love Thursday’s and Friday’s because they stay open late.

Over 30 adult, singles, great food and drinks

Prices

La Bolsa isn’t cheap for Colombia standards. Most plates are in the $30.000 Colombian pesos range. That is expensive for Colombia standards. Drinks are also on the high side. The concept of this place is very cool. They price drinks based on supply and demand. Similar to the stock market, hence the name La Bolsa which means the market. They throw out random discounts on food and drinks when you least expect it. When the national team plays this place gets super packed. You definitely want to visit on those days.

Specials

La Bolsa is currently running a 50% off promotion. However it is only for groups of 4 or more single ladies sitting at the bar. This is awesome. Yes 50% off. Nonetheless this is still a place you will only find professionals and people in mid to high society. The location and price tag scares off the people you want to avoid. Which is great.

Altagracia Cafe Bar Medellin (Friday)

4 Best Places Singles 30Plus Professional Meet-Mingle Medellin Colombia

Shots Shots Shots Altagracia Medellin

Address

Provenza neighborhood Carrera 35 # 8a-81

What we love

An old favorite. Altagracia is not only a shots bar. It is the original shots bar in Colombia. Yup, a bar specializing in specialized shots. And after almost 10 years and multiple locations and changes, it is still the place to be. We love the shots, drinks, live music, people watching and energy. This is a great place to meet over 30 singles. But you will also meet many under 30 yet very mature people. Altagracia feels like a place you would find in Williamsburg Brooklyn, Seattle Washington, or San Francisco California.

Adult, relaxed environment with great drinks and energy

It is located in Provenza neighborhood. They offer indoor and outdoor seating. The bar is small but it is a perfect place to mingle with people buying drinks at the bar. However be warned it can get a little hot and stuffy at the bar. You won’t need reservations here. It’s just a bar at the end of the day. I’m not a fan of the sandwiches they offer.

The specialty shots and long drinks are the best in the business. My favorite drink is the Mari Mar and my favorite shot is Altagracia.

Best night to visit

The best night to visit is Friday. The location of Altagracia plays a big part in the crowd. They are located on a very busy street with tons of foot traffic. A lot of times people ae just walking by and pop in. No plans what so ever. That is the beauty of this place. We have met Germans, Italians, Asians and of course Colombians from all of Colombia and Medellin. You will always be able to strike up a conversation with other singles here. This is a great place. One of my favorites. Altagracia opens at 11am. Friday’s they stay open late.

Prices

Shots and cocktails are reasonable here. Cocktails are only $19.000 Colombian pesos. Shots can add up. They cost $8.000 Colombian pesos. If you have a high tolerance you will end up spending a lot. The best bet budget wise is a cocktail.

Clandestino (Thursday)

Address

Provenza neighborhood Carrera 35 # 8a-15

What we love

We love the scene at Clandestino. First of all make sure you are at the correct location. Somehow there is another Clandestino in Medellin, right down the block from this one. I’ve never been to the other Clandestino and I doubt they are related in any way. If you visit the other Clandestino please share with me your thoughts. You can hit me up on Facebook. Clandestino is located in barrio Provenza. In is in the heart of the Medellin culinary district. The crowd is a mix of corporate, entrepreneurs, artist, politicians, wealthy older people and foreigners.

The food and drinks are excellent in Clandestino depending on the day you visit. Like many places in Colombia the consistency is lacking at times. However, drinks are almost always on point. If you have an issue with food or drinks you can always have them change it. They will do it. The bar at Clandestino is smaller than the bar at La Bolsa. Hence it is very important to make a reservation for the bar. And or for the seats right next to the bar. Clandestino opens in the early evening. It is very important to call for a reservation at the bar. It is a very popular place to sit if you want to meet other singles.

Best night to visit

The best night to visit is Thursday hands down. Thursday this place gets packed early. A lot of co-workers come out after work for drinks and dinner. Clandestino has a live DJ blasting music in the restaurant. However they offer free passes to the nightclub below the restaurant. It’s small but packed with very beautiful people of both sexes. You will mostly see women sitting in groups of 2 or 3 at the bar. And or right next to the bar. Almost all are friendly and open to conversation.

Prices

Like La Bolsa, Clandestino isn’t cheap for Colombia standards. Most plates are in the $35.000 Colombian pesos range. That is expensive for Colombia standards, drinks are also on the high side.

Specials

None

Rating

We rate this place 7 Olive Martinis on a scale of 1-10. The design and decoration of Clandestino is amazing. Just on decor it would receive a 10. But the inconsistency is very frustrating. One day you have an amazing lamb and the next day it is salty and horrible. That is not acceptable. In conclusion service at times can be a major disaster. If you just go to drink and to meet other singles you would rate this place a 10.
