The two hottest nightclubs in Lima, Gotica and Aura, stand just across the way from another, facing one another in a kind of silent challenge. As the name implies Gotica occupies a dark church-like building, cavernous and atmospheric. It attracts a fairly glamorous, if mixed crowd: everyone from the city’s serious clubbers to stylish students and young professional types. One of the best places in town for electronic music, big name DJs play there regularly. It’s hip and lively and deserves its popularity – just remember to dress the part or risk feeling rather out of place.
