2 Best Bars in Puno, The Southern Andes and Lake Titicaca

Pacha Mixology

The only molecular bar in Puno is a central spot for a mean cocktail. The pisco sours are recommended. What you can't miss, however, happens on the third floor, where sister bar Mixology of Pisco has a pool table, rock music, and tall stools around a circular bar. That's where the house mixologists shuffle spirits in test tubes and alembics, preparing your drinks with a unique kind of magic.

Pub Ekeko's

This lively pub-cum-discotheque may not be stellar in terms of either music or presentation, but it's a popular place for locals to have a drink and strut their stuff. It's also the go-to spot in town for televised soccer. When there are no games on, there's music and dancing. The quiet downstairs venue serves wood-fired pizza and other hearty fare.
