10 Best Places for Partying All Night Long in Lima, Peru

Most dance and clubs, bars, and other party venues in Lima, Peru, operate until very late at night, allowing you to continue partying for many, many hours. Some of them address to very young public, some others to people in their 30s or a bit older; a few ones are known as pick-up points. But all of the clubs included in this list offer excellent music, top quality drinks, live shows, and the possibility of having fun all night long.

Most of the clubs listed here are located in Miraflores and Barranco, like Vale Todo or Tequila Rock, which may be convenient for you: but we have also included one in San Borja and one in Lima Downtown, in case you are in or near to those neighborhoods, or if you simply want to try something different. All these clubs are in relatively safe locations, with surveillance cameras and security guards.

However, let's make some clarifications, since the label "night club" may be a bit confusing here in Lima; actually, most places that define themselves as "night clubs" in Lima are in fact bordellos in disguise. We are aware of the fact that adult fun businesses have a great demand nowadays, but to avoid confusions or misunderstandings they are not to be listed here, but under "burlesque" or other similar category.
