Fun, popular and serves a range of cocktails, including some aphrodisiac specials. There's also a branch in Tingo María.

- La Cachina Karaoke
With a spirited bar and karaoke on Tarma's nice new malecón (pedestrian walkway), this is the favorite going-out spot of the moment.

An intriguing mix of cocktails are served, DJs provide the music (reggaetón, salsa) most nights and the atmosphere is buzzing.
- El Galileo
Locals love this fairly safe, central disco-bar (dance bar) which features live music a couple of times per week.
New, safe and centrally located dance club.
- La Colonia ‘H’
A good, relaxed place for a beer or three.
