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 it…
Fun, popular and serves a range of cocktails, including some aphrodisiac specials. There's also a branch in Tingo María.
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.
With a spirited bar and karaoke on Tarma's nice new malecón (pedestrian walkway), this is the favorite going-out spot of the moment.
A stylishly rustic venue, El Trapiche is stacked to the gills with bottles and serves a dangerously extensive array of aphrodisiac cocktails.
An intriguing mix of cocktails are served, DJs provide the music (reggaetón, salsa) most nights and the atmosphere is buzzing.
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.
A good, relaxed place for a beer or three.
The house sangria is great and the place is nicely designed. A pity no one seems to come here these days.
