When a place is this cool and the people this nice, it’s hard not to become an instant acolyte. For all its hip design, Nicolas Wiesner’s space remains grounded in the neighborhood spirit of Getsemaní. The exterior is unreconstructed, there’s a retractable roof that connects Demente to the verve of Plaza de la Trinidad, and rocking chairs on the sidewalk outside pay homage to every Cartagenero’s favorite pastime. Inside, bare stone walls are juxtaposed with slick aluminum rocking chairs, and the Cuban theme runs riot with a fantastic rum and cigar cellar. While this is a place to linger late at night over well-executed cocktails or craft beers, the tasty menu is a fine dinner choice, with a small, rotating menu of Spanish-inspired dishes—think oxtail sliders, tuna tartar, meatballs, and grilled octopus—with a distinctively Colombian spin.
