Wow, what a place. The rooftop was unfortunately closed, but we didnt mind it at all - had a couple of amazing drinks, a very flavoursome appetizer and excellent service. Drinks cost 25000 each - the price you’ll pay for a G&T basically everywhere in...More

We are in Cartagena and here for a few days and this place has already become a favorite for my friends and I. Friendly service, great infused drinks - sweet, spicy, reasonably priced bottles, whatever you’re looking for. Food is ok - wouldn’t go here...More

We spent new year at Alquímico after reading all the reviews and it was such a wonderful evening. The staff is amazing especially Jessica. The food and drinks are also great. Highly recommended when in Cartagena.

Loved this spot so much we actually visited two separate times during our trip! Once at the main level bar for pre-dinner drinks, and another Friday night for the rooftop (which was packed - in a good way). Cool spot with well curated craft cocktails.

This is a fantastic looking venue. A really beautiful interior with one of the best looking bars you will ever see. Unfortunately, to get in you have to put up with the door lady pretending that there may not be room. We arrived at about...More
