Bar at Hotel Maury Lima Reviews
Creators of the Pisco Sour - Hotel Maury Jan 02, 2010
This bar belongs to the hotel Maury, which used to be one of "the" hotels in Lima back in the 40s. Nowadays downtown is not the best area to stay while you are in Lima.
The hotel is big and clean. The decor is nice and makes you feel you are back in time. But this is inside. Unfortunately the surroundings are loud and not that nice.
Nevertheless, I wanted to visit it, to be honest its bar. The reason: our traditional cocktail "Pisco Sour" was invented here.
The decor and atmosphere in general of the bar is great. I felt as if I was in an old movie. Everything is woody and elegant, very classy. We got a sit at the bar and it was a great idea, since the barman kept on refilling our glasses without asking.
The pisco sour here is very good, although stronger than it seems. The staff is really helpful and friendly. The barman kept on bringing complimentary snacks too. Regarding the prices, the pisco sour here was cheaper than in other areas which makes you drink more until it's late, hehe.
If you want to taste the most traditional pisco sour in the city in a cool atmosphere. This bar should be part of your tour. Let's make it your last stop during your downtown tour :)
