“Hot Spot”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

If you want to hear the best in Latin music, reggae ton, salsa, merengue, etc., then head over to Tu Candela, next to El Fidel by the clock tower. You will see beautiful women and fun people partying to some heart pumping music.

“Great times @ Tu Candela”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

A bit of salsa and north american music. The place is in vault/arch and is quite nice. Recommended even though prices for imported drinks is a bit high (15,000COP).

“Could be so much better”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

First of all the music and the service are great. Second of all if you are going to go from sunday to thursdayish you will only find foreigners and a large amount of "working girls." At one point the while bar consisted of 4 french guys, 2 norweigans and about 40 ladies of the night. Look for another night place if that isn't your bag. Would go again if the ambience was a little less hookery.
