    La Cabaña

    Contemplate this: a man collects wondrous and miraculous things, from old fruit machines to antiquated aguardiente-making equipment throughout his life and then arranges them around a lively, cozy restaurant that makes delicious pisco sours (if you're feeling hot) or calientitos (if you're feeling cold). Heart-warming and belly-warming. Informal courtyard seating, plus weekly live music, normally at weekends.

    Restaurant Peña Turistico Wanka Wanka

    This peńa (bar or club featuring live folkloric music) in El Tambo attracts local bands such as Kjantu and has good cumbia and folk music. The food and drinks are pricy though. Take a taxi here (S3).

    Local bands perform at this long-serving bar-restaurant most nights from 9pm. Expect John Lennon posters, Pink Floyd on the stereo, and burgers and pizzas to chow down on.
