Night is for fun. Well, probably every person could have a different definition of "fun" of its own, but there's some points in common for almost everyone: party, drinks, dance, and some adrenalin, of course. And you will find plenty of these in Lima, the city that never sleeps, whose citizens love to laugh and have fun.
Peru has its own national liquor, the pisco, and its national flagship drink, called “pisco sour”, made with pisco, lime juice, a bit of egg white… and lots of bartender’s secrets. You have to try it, but let us give you a friendly warning: it may become addictive.
Now that you know, we can suggest some places to enjoy a good pisco sour: for example, Huaringas Bar and Capitan Melendez, places that follow the traditional pisco sour recipes and are also constantly innovating with new drinks. And if you are in social drinking mood, there’s places like El Tayta and Treff Pub Aleman, where you will have a chance to meet nee friends.
Regarding partying, Gotica (upscale) and El Dragon (popular) are two good dance spots with live music and very affordable drinks. And there’s a place where you can dance and also enjoy a live folk dance show: Brisas del Titicaca.
If your idea of fun includes gambling, then Casino Atlantic City is custom-made for you. But if you enjoy just winding down and see the rhythm of the city, you will enjoy the cozy Café Z and its outdoor terrace. But Café Z also presents some live music shows, so you may have the best of both worlds here.
