Mamba Negra

Medellín, Colombia

One of Medellín’s swankiest rooftop bars hails from Juan David Zapata, a Colombian native who rose to the top of the city’s bartending scene from humble beginnings. The flashy look and feel of Mamba Negra – named after the highly venomous snake – matches the unmatched views of the city beyond, and with notable cuisine that melds influences from Africa, Spain and the Caribbean, it’s easy to get lost in the magic of it all. A large cocktail menu promotes cheeky riffs on modern classics that inject a dose of mirth into the moment – such as the “Not So Famous” and “Silent Words” – alongside a hearty collection of global classics like the Mojito, Carajillo and Negroni, plus a refreshing handful of custom designed Gin Tonics, alcohol-free drinks and house signatures. As one of their Instagram posts promises, “not all the places you go stay in your memory, but we assure you never forget this paradise”.
