Depending on whether you want to sip a glass of wine or dance with 500 people to an internationally-acclaimed DJ, your best bets for the best nightlife in Lima can be found in either the Miraflores or Barranco neighborhoods. In their own ways, both areas are epicenters of all that is hip and happening, so naturally, they're where the stylish tend to flock when the sun goes down and the weekend begins. For wine bars and cocktail lounges where it's possible to hear your companion without shouting, Miraflores is the best destination. For Bohemian dive bars, live music, culture centers, the biggest club in the city (Sargento Pimienta), Barranco is the better option.
