Specializing in gin, this intimate bar is tucked along one of Barranco’s liveliest streets. It's both a chill after-office hangout and a warm-up to a wild night ahead. With jazz beats evolving into funky tunes, an array of international gins and other beverages and tasty tapas to match, this is the spot that Lima was missing.

Arrive as close to opening time as possible to ensure a seat.
