For the hundreds of thousands who have climbed the Lost City of the Incas only to return to Cuzco hungry, tired and in dire need of a relaxing meal and a night out, the Plaza de Armas needs no introduction. Undeniably the city's central hub of entertainment, this beautiful square and its surrounding streets are home to countless bars, restaurants and clubs teeming with locals and travelers looking for a crazy night on the town. You don't need much direction here, just bring an appetite for good food and good times and head in the general direction of the Catedral de Cuzco. The rest will take care of itself. Enjoy.
Note:Calle Procuradores, also known as "Gringo Alley," runs behind the Plaza and is renown for its cheap eats, while Mama Africa and Paddy's Irish Pub are staples of the nightlife scene.
