Two bars split into upstairs and downstairs (with no ground level)...
The name says museum, but the designer slabs of stone and glass, plus the menu of more than 100 piscos, says cocktail bar...
New to craft beer? The friendly Canadian-Peruvian owners will step you through the best beers from Peru's microbreweries, with bonus local travel advice...
With a rooftop terrace overlooking the church of San Francisco, this eternally popular haunt has a long list of crazy cocktails and a lethal happy hour every evening...
In the same alley as Forum Rock Cafe, this rock ’n’ roll bar is a good spot to get the night going...
It’s a gutsy Latin dance club with a thing for bamboo and waterfalls, and is currently the place to be seen on weekend nights...
They’re dancing by 8pm on a Saturday night in this youthful upstairs pub/club a block from the main square, with enough sectioned-off parts to find your own favorite nook. Beware of the tuneless karaoke.
Latin music blares through the barred windows of this hole-in-the-wall from opening until closing. It’s a decent place to sip a happy-hour pisco sour (grape brandy cocktail) and pester passers-by.
A five-in-one excuse for a good night out in a sillar building incorporating a pub (Retro), pool club (Zero), sofa bar (Chill Out), nightclub (Forum) and restaurant (Terrasse).
Owned by the same folks as El Turko, this Middle Eastern–themed bar with stained-glass windows and overstuffed couches offers exotic liquor concoctions, beers and jet-fuel coffee.
Where would any city be without its themed Irish pub? Tucked behind the cathedral, this gringo haven has – guess what? – Guinness, pub grub and soccer on satellite TV.
On the Plaza de Armas, raucous Dady’o Disco Pub & Karaoke throws open its doors for go-go dancing, live bands and digital karaoke, plus wickedly cheap beers.
If you’re missing chocolate chip muffins, bucket-sized lattes and sofas full of noncommunicative wi-fi nerds, this Starbucks-wannabe is undoubtedly your bag.
This smoky, intimate little bar with live bands playing on a stage at the back would be equally at home as a bohemian student hangout on Paris’ Left Bank.
Nordic-style pub with Union Jack flags, happy-hour cocktails and plenty of locals and expats having a chin-wag.
Beyond the tourist haunts, the hottest local action is to be had at nightclubs strung along Av Dolores .
