Best Places to Party in Lima
When the colonial facades and the beautiful high rises in Lima are bundled up in fog, the enchantment of the place is subdued and comes across too subtle. Rising up from a long coastline of crumbling cliffs, Lima is considered the second-driest world capital beaten only by Cairo. After spending a day in climbing on the wave of chaos spanning from the high rising condos alongside the pre-Columbian temples, the nights can be spent in a way you want, thanks to the wide variety of options in Lima.
To help you pick through the options and find you a night according to your mood, here is the list of best neighbourhoods to plan your nights in:

Some of the most famous bars in the Peruvian neighbourhood include Olvídate Bar, Bar Monarca, La Jarrita, Bar Hotel Boliovar, Ancieta U Alta, Dalida Cafe Bar, Trescruses and Centro Bar.
