👍👍 This place is AMAZING! Tucked away from Plaza de Armas, you might walk by it without noticing but it has a great list of cocktails and snacks. Must visit for a pre-dinner drink or the perfect nightcap spot. Tunes & atmosphere are on point.

    If you find yourself near "Plaza de Armas del Cusco" wander down one of the side alleys and you will discover this pretty amazing craft cocktail bar! The people here are extremely welcoming and accommodating! Drinks here are served and prepared with the style of classic mixology! The mixologists work with a wide variety of spirits and prepare classic cocktails, tropical cocktails (tiki), local favorites and pretty much anything you desire! Not sure of what you want, let them know what you're looking for flavor and spirit wise and something will be made for you! They work with local spirits and others, as well as serve local favorites! If you're preparing to conquer Machu Picchu, or have already done so, definitely come here relax and enjoy amazing cocktails with an amazing staff! No food is served here, drinks only and the location is small and personal, which makes it amazing! Definitely drop in and have a drink! As of this time the location has been open 4 months, and it should last for quite some time!!!

    This cocktail bar was all what we needed. The lighting is warm, seating comfortable, and space is cozy. Music is not too loud so you can talk with your friends and drinks are delicious. My favorite were the one made with this new spirit called Matacuy and the teapot hot cocktaisl which are perfect for the cold nights in Cusco. This bar is located in between many other lively bars which can be very loud so if u want to escape those for a bit. Here is the space to do so! The wifi is good here too!

    This is an outstanding bar! From their old school fashioned drinks to being served by three perfect gentlemen, Fernando, Victor and Jared, in a lovely, quaint bar in the energetic Mecca of Cusco. You can’t buy the vibes, it’s free for those worthy of the journey they’ve made to Perú, but you can certainly buy a custom tailored experience to get a little tipsy in a safe and well looked after environment. It’s made to make you feel attended to. It’s cozy, stylish, with delicious one of a kind drinks. I had cream of violet liquor in my “Avition” drink. It was just the right touch of a refinement. Enough privacy and great company to make a bar feel like the perfect size. It inspired great conversations and closeness with my husband.

    Great atmosphere and great drinks! Bartenders were very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. They taught us about the different ingredients they used that were unfamiliar to us. We got the black cat and the qusqo mule, which were both great! Ordered pasta from the place next door and were able to eat it at the bar. Some of the best food and drinks we’ve had in Peru!

    One of the best cocktail spots in Cusco. Great cocktails and amazing space for evening drinks. Service was also awesome and the bartenders were very friendly!

    Overall, my experience at Black Cat Bar was a memorable one. The combination of its intimate atmosphere, skillfully crafted cocktails, and friendly service make it a standout among the bars in Cusco.

    The best cocktails we had in Cusco, hands. Looking for a real pisco sour? This is your spot. Staff are a joy, and the vibe is laid back, without the deafening music of some places nearby. Highly recommended.

    Absolutely fabulous spot for drinks! Stopped in on a Wednesday night: we were the first ones at the establishment, but it quickly filled to standing room only. The drinks were great, tasty and strong. They've partnered with the Italian establishment next door for food (which was also amazing). I simply cannot recommend highly enough!

    Wonderful cocktail bar! On a whim, I asked if they could make an aviation with pisco instead of gin, and it turned out amazing! Great service, great atmosphere, great location. 10/10

    This was such a wonderful place to relax and unwind after a long day of walking around. The bartenders were friendly and engaging. They made you feel at home. Great prices and drinks!

    There isn’t an experience in Cusco that will match this if you are a true cocktail aficionado. Fat wash - check! Smoke infusions - check! Milk clarifications - check! Mixology on the fly - check! If you don’t know what you want to drink or what much of the above means, awesome - these guys will hook you up.

    Excellent cocktail bar in Cusco. Drinks are delicious, atmosphere is amazing and bartenders are friendly professionals. 12/10 would recommend!

    Really great spot in Cusco. Excellent service and really well thought out drinks - definitely consider the specials on the board as they are so good. Cocktails are amazing.

    I absolutely loved this place!! I am a solo traveler and sat at the bar. The bartender, Victor, and I became great friends! The has so many helpful recommendations for things to do around the city and made THE BEST drinks! I had a Pisco punch and Qusco Mule. 10/10 would recommend! Tell Victor I said hi!!

    Great bar!! My favorite cocktail was the black cat. Super interesting and nothing like I’ve had before. Great vibes as well, better than other more party bars on the street

  • 5/5 Whitni L. 1 year ago on Google
    Absolutely one of my favorite places in Cusco. Great service and wide selection of spirits. Our server recommended a delicious Pisco I haven’t found in the US and walked us through tasting it properly. Highly recommend if you want a quieter more intimate setting.

  • 5/5 Gabe Castigliego S. 1 year ago on Google
    I would highly recommend visiting this speakeasy style bar. They create hand crafted cocktails made from local spirits. The bartenders are very knowledgeable about the drinks and will gladly tell your stories about their creation. The bartenders are passionate about their job and it shows in their work. I travel to Cusco for work, and I am making this a must go to for every work trip.

    A great cocktail bar. A very short walk from the main square. The three of us enjoyed some of the best cocktails we had in all of Peru, and definitely the best in Cusco. Hugely recommended for both a pre-dinner cocktail or evening drinks. Jose and Christian were wonderful bar tenders. Enjoyed a lovely chat with them, fortunately in English, given our lack of Spanish. Thanks again to you both. Hope to visit again soon.

😐 Obviously the views are incredible. The food..not so much. Ceviche was the star of the table, both apps and entres(we had ceviche, lengua, and cuy - of which there was practically none). The pechugs rellana tasted like a frozen TV dinner...truly disappointing. The skewers were ok, but nothing specia...

👍👍 A local guide brought our group here for a Pisco Sour class (yes, it contains egg whites but you can’t taste it)! 😉 We liked the drink and service so much we stayed for dinner! You must try the mini alpaca burgers! 🍔

👍👍 One of those places where everything is done really well. A really fine restaurant in the middle of a bunch of tourist traps. Big portions, good prices (they do accept credit cards now), and everything I had was delicious. This will be the best meal of your trip.
