Paula’s guide to her hometown of Bogotá, Colombia…
Where to stayPM: Casa Medina Hotel is a 1946 building that was designed by Colombian artist-architect Santiago Medina Mejia and boasts some of the most quietly elegant rooms in the city.
If you’re traveling on a budget, then Selina hostels offer great quality for the price, and they’re well located too.
Where to eatPM: Osaka is, in my opinion, the best restaurant in Colombia! It is Asian-Peruvian food.
El Buen Pastor Taqueria is a special place that I own with some friends where you can get Mexican street food in a location where you can really feel the vibe of the city.
Cava Wine Bar is perfect for wine tasting with great sommeliers and cheese.
Prudencia restaurant is located in La Candelaria, the heart of the city, and you are guaranteed to have an extraordinary gastronomic experience.
Where to visit PM: My favorite museums are The MAMBO (or the Museum of Modern Art) and Banco de la República, and my favorite galleries are Casas Riegner, El Dorado, La Cometa and Espacio Continuo.
Where to shopPM: You must come visit the Paula Mendoza store (our first location), where you will find special pieces that we only have on site. I also love A New Cross showroom and Danielle Lafaurie showroom.
