Drinking and nightlife in Central Highlands

  • Nightlife in Ayacucho

    Yaku

    First things first: enthusiastically run Yaku is not just a bar with a lovely balcony overlooking the Plaza de Armas: it's a live-music venue, it's a restaurant, it brews its own beer, it has table football – and its owners are ever-developing more plans. There are some of Ayacucho's best burgers (S15 to S20) here, too: wolf down a 'Cancún' (with guacamole).

  • Nightlife in Huánuco

    Trapiche

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

    Taberna Magía Negra

    It’s been around longer than most and the youth of today prefer the newer venues but this bar-gallery still has local art, beer, pizza and great music.

  • Nightlife in Tarma

    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.

  • Nightlife in Tingo María

    El Trapiche

    A stylishly rustic venue, El Trapiche is stacked to the gills with bottles and serves a dangerously extensive array of aphrodisiac cocktails.

  • Nightlife in Ayacucho

    Museo

    An intriguing mix of cocktails are served, DJs provide the music ( reggaetón, salsa) most nights and the atmosphere is buzzing.

  • Nightlife in Huancayo

    El Galileo

    Locals love this fairly safe, central disco-bar (dance bar) which features live music a couple of times per week.

  • Nightlife in Huancayo

    Insomnico

    New, safe and centrally located dance club.

  • Nightlife in Huánuco

    Alambique

    The house sangria is great and the place is nicely designed. A pity no one seems to come here these days.
