Great place to go with some friends! You will enjoy great local music and great interaction for tourists! Not very expansive! The atmosphere reminds me of Andrés in Bogotá.

This place is great for dancing and entertaining. Many out of town folks. Opens very late. I had a fantastic time, but made the huge mistake of ordering appetizers. Got really sick. Also dont order their ice...its made from tap water. Other than that, its a great place to enjoy.

It starts late and it helps to book a table. We arrived at 11.30pm and nothing really happened until after midnight. First a group of Afro Peruvian... More
