  • Nortons Rats Tavern

    by connecttravel Written Jun 15, 2012

    This was the worst place I´ve eaten at in Peru. The restaurants and bars in Cusco are incredible and all the other food I´ve had in here is unbelievably fresh, well-prepared, and delicious. However, both the service and food at Norton´s are atrocious. The wait staff is incredibly rude and lazy and the food made two members of our party sick. The wait staff made no effort to be polite or prompt, brought the wrong food for one member of the group, neglected to bring the meal of another, and then charged us for much more than we had ordered. Cusco has many wonderful restaurants and bars, but this is certainly not one of them. I absolutely do not recommend this place for either the food or the atmosphere.

  • Hibrido Loungebar Cusco: Great Cocktails, Music and more

    by Wanchaq Written Mar 10, 2011

    The Hibrido Loungebar is a great little bar, owned by three peruvian brothers which are really atentive and funny.
    You'll find Happy Hour the whole night for Pisco Sour, Mojito, Machu Picchu and Wodka.
    In this bar they play very nice music, a mix of rock, indie, new metal.... Sometimes they have live music and special partys. To see the latest news you can visit them on facebook: "Hibrido Loungebar Cusco"
    Come and enjoy this special bar :)

    Centro Qosqo de Arte Nativo: Folkdance

    by JessieLang Updated Dec 29, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This theater is dedicated to preserving folkloric music and dances of the Andes. They perform a rotating program of 50 dances, so it isn't the same every night. A live orchestra plays for all the dances. There is a small costume museum (one room) that can be visited during the intermission.

    Two performances nightly: 6:45 p.m. and 10 p.m. Photos are allowed.
    One theater performance here is also included in the General Admission tourist ticket.

    No reserved seating. People line up early to get the best seats.

  • The Lost City Bar: my new local!

    by laksmi.ella Written Aug 10, 2010

    small bar with booths and comfy couches. the BEST pizzas in Cusco! they also have paninis and burgers and a few other things. this bar is special for the service and the regulars. they play the football on sundays and any other sports that are showing throughout the week, i'm pretty sure you could request a game too.
    i have been living in Cusco for almost a year and this is my favourite place to go for a drink and a chat. i always feel welcome.

    Dress Code: all are welcome!

    No idea of the name: Cool Club

    by paddyk7 Written Oct 7, 2009

    On the corner of the square, by calle Suecia, is an unassuming blue door, if you passed it during the day, you wouldn't think much of it. At night it opens to reveal a cool little club, not that I can remember much of it from when I was there, but I didn't leave til 5, and had a monster hangover on my tour of the Sacred Valley next day.
    So, my guess is it's pretty good.

    bars: Around the Plaza de Armas

    by Urzu Written Jul 29, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Finding a place to go out at night in Cusco is not difficult at all!! There are plenty of places you can go to around the Plaza de Armas for example. The bad thing about these places is that they are crowded with tourist almost any day of the week! If you want to be a more local atmosphere I'd recommend you go around the area of San Blas, where you can also find bars with live performances. If you're into reggae music, you can try to find this place called Roots (it's about 10 minutes walking from the Plaza de Armas, but don't know the address), which is also not too crowded with tourists.

    Dress Code: The dresscode in places is usually very casual

    SAN BLAS: Alternative nightlife in Cuzco

    by RudoElCojonudo Written Jan 31, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are looking for something more alternative, San Blas neightbourhood is your place. It's a quiet place to have a coffe in the evening, and during the night you could find reggae or funk DJ's or live music. They close earlier than Plaza de Armas, and it´s 5 minutes walking from that, so it could be a good place start the party.

    PLATEROS AND PLAZA DE ARMAS: Nightlife in Cusco

    by RudoElCojonudo Written Jan 31, 2008

    Plateros street, close to Plaza de Armas, is also known as 'Gringo Avenue'. This street is full of restaurants, pubs and discos. Thousands of guys and girls will give you flyers and will make you different offers to go to their places, sometimes is even extressing!! I remember that one night we had at least 8 guys offering us flyers from diferent pubs around us!!
    Plaza de Armas is rounded by arches, and under them there are also many pubs and discos.
    You can go on party every night until late. Bring condoms!! *;-]

    Eko: Come and dance the night away!

    by AR76 Updated Feb 9, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a fairly small night club, but the atmosphere is really good and the music even better (mainstream pop/rock).
    One tip though: use the bathroom before you come here, and don't drink too much - you absolutely want to avoid the bathrooms in Eko!!

    Dress Code: Normal

    Las Vegas: Place for locals

    by K-nalla Written Dec 9, 2006

    No vengan si quieren conocer turistas. Es mas o menos extricto en quien entra. Se debe tener DNI pa entrar, pero pasada la una todos pasan. El sitio es lo q uno espera de un bar de locales, chela barata y gete toneando sin preocuparse del tiempo q le queda en Cuzco o q tal se ve en sus nuevas alpargatas. Definitivamente vale la pena probarlo, les aseguro volveran. Mejores noches son los jueves y sabados...

    Norton's Bar: Norton's - A fun place to go

    by hethbill Written Aug 21, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Norton's is a British style pub, in the upstairs just off the Plaza de Armas. It's named after a British motorcycle, and there's lots of biker stuff all over the place. They have pool, darts, and a good atmosphere. Good prices, casual dress, and if it's not too cold, a nice view of the Plaza from their balcony. ... But like anywhere in Cusco, there's a lot of smoke (which I hate!)

    Dress Code: Casual, wear whatever you want

    Norton Rat's: Fun Cusco Biker Bar

    by Paul2001 Written Oct 6, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Norton Rat's is set up as somekind of Biker's Bar as you might find somewhere in the American Midwest. There is a motorbike usually parked outside with apparently belongs to the American owner. Inside the bar is pretty much your standard sports bar with satellite TV where, if you are a huge football fan like me, you can catch Monday Night Football. Interestingly the entire ceiling is covered with flags of nations from all over the world. Also of note, this is the only bar in Cusco where you can sit on a balcony over the Plaza de Armes and do a little people watching. The food here is of the standard pub variety and of no special merit.

    See a Show

    by chrissyalex Updated Aug 31, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    June in Cusco is winter, so it usually is dark by 5:30 pm. Many of the shops are open until 9:00 pm,but if you would like to do something different, see a traditonal music-and-dance show.
    There are a few restaurants on the Plaza de Armas which have nightly dinner shows,El Truco being the most famous. We went to Tunupa. There was a nice buffet which included some Peruvian dishes and there was also lovely view of the square. The show was very nice. I really love the Andean mountain music. It is so pretty and relaxing. Don't forget to but a CD of this music before you leave Peru. You can listen to it and be reminded of your trip and the beautiful mountains.

    Dress Code: I would go with casual dressy.A dress or nice pants for women. Nice pants and dress shirt or sweater for men. It is a nice restaurant, but not an ultra fancy one. There were some people dining there in jeans, but I think this was kind of inappropriate.
