No trip to Medellín is complete without a visit to Mangos, Medellín’s best-known nightspot (although it’s technically located in the neighboring municipality of Itagüí). Mangos claims to be the largest dance club in Latin America; whether or not this is true, its crazy, over-the-top atmosphere, complete with costumed servers and frequent shows, are the reason why everyone flocks to Mangos. There is a strange American Old West theme (think lots of cowboy hats) as well as an “anything flies” attitude here. Wearing shorts here is frowned upon, and if you wear flip-flops or sandals, you won’t get past the style police that guard the door.
