6 Best Bars in The Central Highlands, Peru

729 Café-Bar

Cocteles del autor and old-fashioned, round-the-hearth furnishings make this bar a favorite on cold Andean nights. Sit back in one of the easy chairs, and listen to the DJ spin Latin pop hits, or order a piqueo (snack tray) from the excellent kitchen.

La Cabaña

Listen to rollicking live folklórico and pop bands Thursday through Saturday at this cozy bar, which doubles as a pizza restaurant during the week.


The best disco in town, Maxxoh gets going late and keeps partying until the wee hours with a mix of local and international music—and a crowd to match.

Rock and Pop

One of the more popular discos in Huancayo, this two-story behemoth features live rock and salsa bands and reasonably priced drinks.

Taberna Magía Negra

Admire the local art on the walls and dozens of upside-down black umbrellas on the ceiling while grabbing a drink or pizza at the "black magic" pub. This is a good spot for craft-beer lovers.

Taj Mahal

Dancing is the main attraction at the Taj Mahal, a rambunctious disco that stays open until 4 am and attracts an upscale clientele of local twenty- and thirtysomethings, along with a few tourists.
