Antigua Taberna Queirolo
While an outsider might assume that this 1870 tavern located on a non-descript corner of Pueblo Libre merely serves as a tourist attraction, rest assured that Limeños pack out this authentic watering hole. Given that it’s owned by the Queirolo pisco producer, the drinks aren't bad, either. Little has changed, décor-wise, in the past 145 years, apart from the addition of sepia photos depicting memories; pull up a relatively hard chair at the marble-topped table and await brisk service. Locals come here for the chilcanos, a pisco-and-ginger-ale-based drink that’s shared around the table. Remember to line your stomach first, preferably with a hefty sánguche de chicharrón (pork belly sandwich).
