Medellín is known for its December full of lights and celebrations. For that reason, until January 9, 2023, the Medellín mayor’s office will extend the hours of bars and clubs for locals and tourists to enjoy the nightlife during the Christmas and New Year holidays.

December 16, 2022

With the signing of Decree 1045 of 2022, all shops and commercial establishments with the sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages will benefit from the extension of hours, depending on the zone where said establishments are located. They will be separated in two mixes, high mix and medium mix and this is defined by the Land Management Plan (known as POT).

High mix: establishments that operated until 4:00 a.m. They can do it from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 a.m., in areas such as Provenza, Parque Lleras, Avenida 33, Carrera 70, and La 68 in Castilla.

Medium mix: establishments that operated until 2:00 a.m. They can do it from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 a.m., among these, there are establishments located in sectors of the Manrique, Aranjuez, Doce de Octubre, and Robledo communes.

“We want you to have fun in the nightlife of our city, and that is why we will have this extended schedule until 3:00 a.m. and until 5:00 a.m. according to the sector. Everyone will enjoy their Christmas party, have fun, and be happy at this time of the year”, assured the Secretary of Government and Cabinet Management, Juan Pablo Ramírez Álvarez.

During the days of extension, permanent controls will be carried out to avoid problems with noise, coexistence, and the sale of adulterated liquor.

Other Places That Will Have Extended Hours
Usually, during December commercial establishments, tourist places, or parks in the city extend their hours to receive visitors until late at night. Malls like Santafé, Viva Envigado, El Tesoro and others are usually open up to an hour longer than usual, closing at 10 p.m. from Monday to Saturday.

Other places like Parque Norte park also have special Christmas hours so that people can visit the park and see all the lights, decorations, and tour the entire park. During December, the park gates are open until midnight. You can find various places to have fun in Medellín during the Christmas season, since there are all kinds of options, including some suitable for the whole family.

The only exception is that on dates like December 24, 25, 30 and 31, commercial establishments may close earlier than usual. Take the necessary previsions so that on those days the different schedule does not ruin your plans.

The Party Does Not End in December
Keep in mind that if you plan to go out to a nightclub in December, the special hours also last until January 9. That means that during the first days of this month, the nightclubs in areas such as Provenza, Parque Lleras, Avenida 33, Carrera 70, and La 68, will continue working until 5 a.m.
