One of Barranquilla's best places to go out, La Troja is an institution in Barranquilla. You can stay outside and cool down after a day in the sun or try to make your way to the busy dance floor. Definitly a place to go to if you are to stay in Barranquilla between Thursday to Saturday night.

We went there with friends to watch a soccer game (local team was playing). The atmosphere was crazy! To me, beers were quite cheap even though I'm sure you can find cheaper places in Barranquilla. There were lots of locals, music was very loud and after the game people started dancing. It's definitely a must place to visit if you're... More

Wanted to go dancing with my friends! The area is sketchy, the club was very dirty, had a strong odor, it needs to close for a few days and clean the place! Only ordered a bottle of beer. We had 1 quick drink and left, not impressed at all with the service or what appeared to be very dangerous clientele!

Hello Jay, I think something is wrong with your description and I think you went to a different place, because thats not the description of La Troja, Even more because our place is air open and is not closed, the place do not have odors, the area is very well protected by 20-30 policemen every night more likely because this...

This place has amazing dancing to be seen every night of the week!! We were there for Carnaval and the party exploded out into the street and was insanely fun! I'd highly, highly recommend checking this place out, even just to watch salsa. It's technically a restaurant but the dancing comes first! We didn't even eat, we just bought beers... More

The place to feel the spirit of Barranquilla and meet people from all levels and trades. The music is Salsa and the volume is always very high, so be prepared. May a bit too loud for some our ears, but the Colombians love it .... Absolut fair prices and they really welcome all people and it's easy to get in... More

La troja is definitely a landmark to visit the end of the weeks. The real soul of Barranquilla is there. Excellent way to see the Colombian culture and their passion for dance

Came here on the final night of Carnaval and it was amazing. Lots of friendly people. Cheap beers. Not sure if it is like this throughout the year- if so I would definitely recommend the place.

Everyone told us to go there because this place has become an iconic place to visit. So we all went is a group. It is nothing but a bar with many many seats outside the counter, but it is buzzing with people and super loud music. Since it is open and there are too many people, it gets very humid.... More
