There was a concert this time, some interesting local bands and some cool attendance too. The place has different areas, if you don't want to hear the music that loud you can move to the bar or to the courtyard. Also they can store your jacket, it's useful because inside it's very warm. Some guys were working on some woodcraft... More

psychedelic decoration with murals, nudity and ceremonial masks, weird lighting and live rock music!!! this venue kicked some ! definitely didn't expect such a live-stage bar in up in the mountains. Happy hour with 2 for one drinks also included. The customers were mixed locals and tourists, the staff friendly and cool. And at the end of the live show... More

I totally love this place and each time I am in Cusco, I am stopping by at least for one drink! :) Good atmosphere, good music, also good food.

My partner and I found ourselves adjusting to the altitude and wanted a place to chill, yet feel the ambiance of the Cusco nightlife. This place was packed! The venue, customer service and energy of this place on a Monday night was spot on what we were looking for. Happy hour helped my partner, while I happily zipped on a... More

I had a blast going to Ukukus multiple times. They had great live music every time I went (I think the music is nightly). Its right near Plaza de Armas, but not unreasonably priced. Also, there is just a great atmosphere and vibe. Fun place!

During a free walking tour in Cusco, we met few locals that invited us to this bar to enjoy a free live performance. They atmosphere is great, the happy hour is until 10h30! and we could enjoy live peruvian music. Only con, quite small for the number of people. Still had a great night out.

Ukukus was a great experience for my girlfriend and I. Firstly the decoration is dope, reminiscent of bars in our home town of New Orleans. The drinks were 2 for 1 for most of the night, so we had 4 mojitos for just 36/s. The live music and the ambience were also on point. We went on a classic rock... More

We had a great time one evening at this club. Live music went from Eastern European to a Latin Jazz/Rock. Talented musicians, good crowd, nice bar with reasonable prices.

This club is a good place to meet locals as it´s much less touristic than the other ones in the main square
