Best night I've had in Lima
Apr 2019 • Friends
Probably here is one of those places where, thanks to the hospitality, the food and the GREAT musicians, you can travel in time and feel like you are in one of those Vargas Llosa books. If you're not from Peru or Latin America, the place feels like it's a party with your family where everyone is singing, hearing the musicians and dancing. You have to order the lomo salteado with a cold cusqueña to enjoy the full experience.

Finally, I think the highlight of this place is that here's one of those few places I've found in South America where you can find traditional music, played magically without being super touristic. The best music I've heard in a long time!

Thanks for such a special night.

A simple dance hall with live Peruvian music
Feb 2016 • Couples
La Oficina is a traditional, little-known dance hall with Peruvian live music. It's a small and lively place, but more so for older folks of for those interested in a different low-paced romantic and genuine "criollo" music experience.

Our favorite peña
Jan 2016 • Friends
The pictures may not do it justice but La Oficina is a place that feels homey, cozy and authentic. The food is good, the pisco sour is great and more importantly the dancing, the show and the music is awesome. This is a must if you're visiting Peru - the authentic feel of a traditional peña without the commercializations or big fancy show like other peñas you'll find in Lima. A must! You will love it.

Respetando la tradicion - Traditional South American music
Apr 2013 • Friends
Late one Saturday evening a friend brought me to La Oficina to listen to traditional bolero style latin music. Upon entering La oficina, we noticed a small stage with two guitar players, one playing the cajon, and one playing just finger castanets. About twenty people were scattered on tables in the main room that felt intimate. One of the guitar players used all ten fingers playing the guitar in the tradition of classical Spanish guitar. The players complimented him in playing song upon song of traditional music. On a few occasions, two women stood in front of the stage and sang songs to their accompaniment... songs that seemed to come from a distant past of South America where guitars played and singers sang late into the night in small cafes. Some dancers associated with house and those in the audience danced the traditional marinera dance.

We had some food and I drank a few beers, but I didn't pay much attention to the food, it was the music that thrilled me. La oficina is devoted to keeping this kind of beautiful music alive. It is also your opportunity to appreciate the wonderful art of this rich tradition. If you are visiting Lima and looking for this kind of unique opportunity, this is your place to go.
