If you are visiting Lima, you simply must make sure to take a little time out of your busy schedule to experience the nightlife. It’s an experience you won’t soon forget. There are some great options – video bars, salsa clubs, cafes, and dance clubs. Lima clubs usually start the evening with electronic music moving into the 80s hits, then pachanga and salsa later on, which are the most popular dance forms.
Aura – This is where the fashionable folk of Lima gathers to party the night away. It’s known as the best dance club in Lima, which explains why it’s always packed. It’s located in Larcomar next door to Gotica. There’s also a VIP room upstairs that features nightly electronic music.
Gotica – You’ll find Gotica in the Larcomar Shopping Center on the Miraflores cliffs. This is one of the most popular Lima dance clubs, playing a mix of pachanga and salsa. If you like electronic music there’s a smaller room that caters to this music form.
El Dragon – Every year El Dragon stays on the top list of nightclubs to visit. It’s small and dark like a dragon’s den and it features live music some nights as well as an electronic DJ that holds 80’s nights, salsa nights, and other specialty nights. Be prepared for a late night because the party really doesn’t start until after midnight.
Bartini – If you like quiet and cozy this intimate bar is just what you need. The small dance floor is never empty and almost always packed. Enjoy all kinds of music and be sure to take in happy hour.
