Many caleños don't really go out drinking, they go out to dance. For a low-key night out head to Parque del Perro, home to numerous small bars. Just north of Cali is Menga, with many large discos. Further afield, several large salsatecas (salsa dance clubs) cluster in legendary Juanchito, although the area no longer attracts crowds like it once did.
