Let me first say it was quite surprising to see an authentic English style pub in Columbia Sou th America. Even the owner/proprietor, Alex has the accent and all. Speaking of Alex, he is o ne of the coolest, down to earth, friendliest bar/pub owner I’ve encountered in a foriegn cou ntry. You can tell from the onset, he is focused on the customer and the classic pub experie nce. From the quality of the beer to the football parafanilia on the walls and screens, its wha t you would expect and then some
The microbrews and the columbian coffee (chemex style)….look it up, was all great. We were there during the World Cup, so it was great atmosphere with plenty of outdoor seating and giant screen tv’s. The downtown location and proximity to the Marriott made it the perfect s pot to hit each day of our stay. Britannia never let us down with the level of service and kn owledge of their product and the city. Alex actually suggested we get a taste of the real Bog ota food experience by going to Agave Azule…awesome.
Our last day in Bogota we went to say our farewells and true to form, Alex offered us some new coffee he was cross promoting and selling, on the house. Not many places invite you t o drink, talk, share experiences to learn about other cultures like the atmosphere you experie
nce once you walk through the doors of Britannia. Thanks Alex, for the libation and making our trip to Columbia a spot to revisit soon.
