The main outdoor plaza

Theatron, the biggest gay club on the continent, is one of the largest clubs in all of Latin America. It is housed inside an old cinema building, and is truly enormous with 13 different rooms to choose from playing everything from techno to salsa, rock to reggaeton. Dress up, or don’t, as one of the best things about this megaclub is the easy-going, non-judgemental air about the place. Open from Thursday to Sunday, Saturday night (open bar until 2am) draws massive crowds who dance their socks off till the sun comes up the following morning. One of the best nights out in Bogotá, gay or straight, a trip to the city would not be complete without a visit to Theatron. It has to be seen to be believed!
