Mama Africa - Cusco, Peru

It is a good bar at nighttime. Locals and tourists party, drink and dance there. Worth checking out but it doesn't really start until after 11pm. Instagram: @tommiesox

In this place you have the opportunity to have salsa lessons, or listen to international music, good place for fun and meeting people.

The salsa lesson was a blast! I have no dancing abilities, but the teacher was very encouraging and helpful. Thankfully my partner was also terrible, and we had a ton of fun messing up and joking about it.

My girlfriends are latinas and we enjoyed very much the salsa lessons and the disco tech scene. Interesting music selection at the beginning of the night but got better as more people started coming in. Nice happy hour deal too.

I really enjoyed my night at Mama Africa. They have been varrying on music styles during the night (salsa music, a little bit of hip hop, electro...). Also, the dancefloor is well enough big for a bunch of people.

Mama Africa is a great Night Club in town, particularly the music, have really good mixt with south america song and also occidental one. Good atmosphere with table and sofa if you want to sit down and chill out before to come back again on the dance floor. You can also have painting face for free with amazing painting. Bartender...
