This is one of the best places to catch an English Premiere League game. There is usually a lively crowd for the games, especially on Tuesdays and Wednesdays when there are Champions League games.

Barranco Beer Company
With a location now in Cusco, you can now have your favorite Lima beer right in Cusco, a block outside the Plaza de Armas. The location is a bit small, but for the beer snobs among us, you have to check it out. They brew some of the best in all of Peru.
Norton Rat’s Tavern
Norton’s is another popular expat influenced pub overlooking the plaza. The small balcony that wraps its self around the pub is always full with tourists enjoying a beer and the warm sun. There are a number of beers on tap including three varieties of Lima Ale. If you get bored over your drink why not challenge your friends to a game of darts or pool. Or entertain yourself by trying to name as many of the country flags as you can that cover the ceiling. There are a number of TVs also that show different sporting events. Norton’s has a fun menu to boot with tasty snacks and juicy burgers.
