An interesting mix of backpackers and young Peruvians, Mama Africa is one of Cusco's most popular discos. Playing a mix of reggae, rock, techno with a bit of salsa thrown in for good measure. Lively and friendly staff make it a good place to visit even if you're traveling alone - you won't be for long in Mama Africa. Afternoon videos and a restaurant keep it busy all day.

Kamikaze

Plaza Regocijo 274, 2nd floor

Cusco's original pub-disco is still swinging after over 17 years in business. It's not as crowded as the other disco pubs mentioned, and tends to be a little more popular with the locals but there is a good friendly atmosphere. Again the music is quite varied including rock, disco, reggae and salsa. There is a pretty balcony overlooking Plaza Regocijo. Live music every night at 11pm. 

Happy hour 8:30 - 9:30 pm.
