Azuca Beach

South American in Quito

Everyone from students to professionals heads to this buzzing place overlooking Plaza Foch. Dishes from coastal regions throughout South America, including ceviches, are among the hits. Tropical cocktails (try the fruit-flavored mojitos and caipirinhas), a bamboo-trimmed bar and potted palms add to the lounge-like space, which becomes a popular drinking spot at night. Live music Wednesday and Saturday from 9pm.
