The students and the hipsters flock here for regular open-air performances (music, comedy, the works) in the courtyard, whilst upstairs there is now a decent eatery, Mestizo...
The liveliest local disco, known locally as Maxxo, where gringos, as well as locals, go to strut their stuff. There is another disco on the same block playing mostly salsa.
In El Tambo, this peńa (bar or club featuring live folkloric music) attracts local bands such as Kjantu and has good cumbia and folk music. Take a taxi here (S3).
A mellow kind of place with a small dance floor downstairs and a cozy upstairs area for drinks: go on, come knock back some of their house sangria!
Local bands perform at this bar-restaurant most nights from 9pm. Lennon posters, Pink Floyd on the stereo, and burgers and pizzas to chow down on.
It’s been around longer than most and the youth of today prefer the newer venues but this bar-gallery has local art, beer, pizza and great music.
Popular with (mostly male) locals and often with a S2 cover charge, Danny has recorded and live Latin music with plenty of space for drinking, too.
A stylishly rustic venue, El Trapiche is stacked to the gills with bottles and serves a dangerously extensive array of aphrodisiac cocktails.
There are no stand-out nightclubs: at the time of research one of the best was Galileo Disco-Pub . Take a taxi back late at night.
The favored spot in town for folklórica . A couple of similar places are on the same block.
Stop by this restaurant on a Friday or Saturday night to catch a could-be Peruvian singing star.
The place to head for local folklórica groups such as Rammi, Llantuy and Taipuy.
Good live bands, from folkloric to rock, perform here, and there's live music nightly.
The best place for a beer or three.
New, central dance club.
