Nightlife in Cusco's Main Plaza
Cusco's vibrant nightlife is no surprise given that it plays host to so many young tourists from all over the world. There are events happening every night of the week in this city, with enough variety to satisfy travelers of all stripes. The city center acts as the hub for the local nightlife, and you can easily spend an evening exploring the streets around the main square. If you want to "pre-game" with beers or other drinks, go to Norton's, which features cheap beer, good music, and a collection of board games. When it's time to get the party started, head to La Chupiteria, a fun shot bar at the back end of the Plaza. If you're in the mood for dancing, head to Mythology or Mama Africa, both of which are located on the main square. Consider ranging slightly farther afield to check out The Temple, a nightclub right behind the plaza in Tecsechocha.
