Going to high volume music clubs isn’t that appealing to a lot of people of different ages; however, some other people like to switch between partying and going to cultural events on the weekends. Going to theaters, concerts, art galleries, photo shows, among others, this makes humans search for cultural entertainment for any number or reasons, a way to expand our minds and travel through hemispheres.
El Poblado offers good quality options, here you will find where to look or call before going, depending on the changing themes. I suggest the following list:
Casa Teatro El Poblado
It started as a group of friends dream, for having a meeting place on Medellin’s south side, where they could have an art gallery, a theater and a coffee shop. Casa Teatro El Poblado is a non-profit foundation which stimulates different art branches of the city. A meeting place through techniques, home of plastic arts, theater, dancing, all of the scenic arts. This is place where you can find out what’s happening in the city on art thanks to its multi fun and professional content; they also promote artistic international expressions.
It’s worth visiting, not only because of its select and respectful content, but also because of its lovely structure. They always update their website and social networks, so you’ll always find new content.
