“Fantastic night out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Superb music- Champeta, which is traditional music from the Colombian Caribbean coast especially from Cartagena and Santa Marta. The cocktails were amazing, their most famous being machacao, which was invented at the bar. It's quite small and we didn't try the food but we were able to get table as we arrived quite early on - about 9.30ish.

“Great Restaurant, Music, Prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Just outside of the walls of Cartagena lies The Bazurto Social Club. My friend that lives in the area suggested this place to me. The seafood was delicious, fresh and everything was priced reasonably. They also had a live band playing Colombian style music. I would suggest this place for anyone looking to get a good bite to eat.

PS Anthony Bourdain has eaten here. His picture is on the menu

“A gastronomic treat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Visited Bazurto Social Club as part of a culinary tour conducted by Chef Jorge Escandon himself. We visited the local market and obtained the ingredients. Rubbing elbows with the populace. Went to Bazurto where Chef prepared a Caribbean version of paella, using coconut milk rice. Delicious! A couple of college kids put on a folklore dance session, inviting tour participants to join in. I'd recommend a visit while in Cartagena.

“Fun bar!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Went there when there waslive music. Not sure if they always have live music since it was a special event, but it's a cozy space fun for dancing and socializing.
