“A great place in the T”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

We dropped in there after a hard day of work for a few drinks with plans to go to another restaurant for dinner. We never left, great atmosphere, good service (and the place was packed, we had to wait to get a seat outside), and really good bar food. We never left, just stayed there! Get an outside seat and enjoy the show in the T zone. Its now on our list, the only downside is it is crowded, and hard to get a seat.

“great location for drinks and people watching”
Reviewed August 23, 2011

We visit The Pub on our visits to Bogota. Its the location that draws us to sit and relax over a few drinks on the outside patio which overlooks a pedestrian street in the Zona Rosa. The patio has good ambiance and is perfectly located for people watching. Its quite romantic during the Christmas period when the street's trees are adorned with lights (its quite a sight). There is imitation Irish pub decor inside which projects a dark pubby atmosphere, but its best to go there for the outside patio. At peak evening times and on weekends, there usually is a line to get seated, so its a vibrant scene. Clientele is a mix of expats and young colombians. Its a pub, not a restaurant although their bar food is ok. The Botota Beer Company supplies the draft beer, which is somewhat light and lacking character (the recommended brew for semi serious beer lovers is Monserrate Roja, the best of the bunch). Service for us has always been good.

“Predicatble”
Reviewed June 30, 2011

It had to be done. You are miles away from home and you check out the local Irish Bar (there's always at least one). And like English/Irish themed "traditional" pubs,it is both familiar and subtly different. And it was the only place in Bogota that I saw any Europeans/Americans.

So it's ok. The sell beer from the Bogota Beer Company which brews English style beer with varying success. It's nice to sit outside and watch everything going on on Zona Rosa. There is nothing particularly to recommend it or to say you should avoid it. You probably know what it is like already.

One thing. Don't order Guiness. It was really expensive and was from a can, served by a waitress who didn't get the thing about tilting the glass etc.
