Great traditional Pisco sours! Avid fan after travelling Peru and living on them! Friendly, attentive staff and a good vibe. Went after work on a Friday. We only stayed for one drink but probably would have stayed for more if we didn't have dinner booked.

poor selection of pisco available and pisco sour was also bad and didn't taste freshly made. Lomo saltado tasted unlike anything I've had before i.e It didn't taste at all like lomo saltado should. Unless this was the restaurant's own version of lomo saltado. Atmosphere...More

Description
Harley House is preparing food we know and love. A menu designed with sharing and progressive grazing in mind, we pay homage to the immigrants from Spain, Japan, Africa, Italy & China over the last 500 years in Peru. Descend the stairs into a space reminiscent of a New York style basement, with its exposed brick walls and pillars, light seeping in from the streets above. An ocean-blue tiled bar, the cavernous space is a mix of booth seating, couches with coffee tables, stools and dining tables, evoking an intimate space lit by crystal lamps and candle light.
