Like the well-heeled clientele that frequent this joint, Babar chooses classic over fashion fads every time.
Forgoing the loud salsa colour schemes of many other nightly haunts, these guys unapologetically go for a "black is the new black" aesthetic that will take you back to those hip hop video clips of the noughties.
Black sofas and chunky tables are made for big groups, big bar orders and an even bigger dance off in the aisles leading up to the glow in the dark bar.
The luminous, spiky globes that hang above ensure you can easily scout your friends, in the crowd of 300+ people getting down to revamped versions of chart hits, both old and new.
Expect to get the best bits of a VIP clubbing experience: a smart dress code and top-notch service, but no fiddly ropes to navigate around.
Instead mingling is encouraged, and random meet and greets, undoubtedly fevered by the reasonably priced drinks on offer, means that it is not just the music that is "crossover".
If you need a bit of Dutch courage to get up and shake your tail feather, down a few of the sweet and fruity daiquiris or share a bottle of whisky between friends for $100.
When you are a little hot under the collar, grab some fresh air in the pretty outside patio where the twinkly marble mobile offsets the thumping beats inside.
Leave with a social butterfly sensation that will outlast your next-day hangover. We recommend booking a table if you are in a big group.
Cartagena's nerve centre serves up breathtaking colonial architecture, the city's top attractions, finest hotels, eateries and drinking dens as well as being the administrative and cultural heart of the city.
Constructed on one of three islands that are now connected to the Colombian mainland, the historic walled city was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.
Ever since UNESCO made the announcement the money has poured into restoring the incredible architecture contained inside its historic walls. Wandering aimlessly through Cartagena's historic center is without question it's one of the highlights of any trip to Colombia.
Centro has lost none of its importance over the last three centuries, thanks to the universal allure of its colonial pomp and the concentration of government buildings, hotels, tourist attractions, bars and restaurants in the area.
While the riches of the region no longer flow through Cartagena on their way from Colombia, Peru and Ecuador to Spain, the city has maintained its position as the colonial gem in Colombia's Caribbean crown.
Cartagena's best hotels and restaurants have taken over the uber-casas built by slave traders and Spanish plunderers in the 17th century.
The richest residents knocked up stunning two and three-storey mansions by the westernmost tip of the walled city, where they bagged the sea breeze, added security, papal pardons and the chance to get an early first whiff of pirates.
While it was home to the slave traders of yesteryear, today not much has changed with only those at the very top of Colombia's rich list able to afford to maintain these opulent houses in their original residential state.
As well as hosting the most opulent churches and principal tourist landmarks, Centro is home to the best bars and restaurants in Cartagena.
