The best findings in Barranco

The coolest places where artists hangout in Lima

Situated along Lima's shoreline, just south of Miraflores, the district of Barranco is where trendy people go to enjoy the best that the Peruvian capital has to offer: good food, provocative art, interior design stores and good food (seriously, the food is really good)

Some of our favorite spots in the region

This small gallery displays the work of Peruvian artists on the rise in the local scene, like Guillermo Palacios, Alejandro Jaime and Casandra Tola.

A combination design store and cultural space, they sell everything from colorful odds and ends to works of art, mostly created by Peruvian artists. On the outdoor patio, sofas among the trees invite people to take a break and have some coffee.

Ayahuasca
Installed in a 19th-century mansion, this club features several settings with vibrant tones, each designed by a different architect.

Tostaduria Bisetti
The carefully selected coffee grains are prepared using several techniques, like French press and aeropress. In the back, there’s a small laboratory that you can visit.
