Stay clear of central Lima at night too risky in terms of safety. The district of Milaflores is ok for clubs and pubs, although it is very touristy and fairly expensive. I recommend the district of Barranco, much mkore fun and traditional of Peruvian culture - great fun!

Barranco is definitly the place to go if you want to enjoy Lima's nightlife. Barranco is a rather poor neighbourhood but with a bohemian way of life centered in cafés and pubs (not so many discos), wich is qite uneasy to find in South-America in general and in Lima in particular. Miraflores is also a place with lot of animation, but it is more oriented to the sector of cinemas, more expensive pubs ans selective discos. Let's say that Barranco is more "alternative" and "authentic" at the samen time, and Miraflores is more posh and full of foreigners. The center of Lima is also a nice place, if you know it and are a little carefull; some old cafés and restaurants but some streets are really dangerous. The place to go in the center is definitly LA Filmoteca, a kind of "cine-arte" that organizes retrospectives in cooperatio with ambassies and cultural services of other countries (e.g.: 4 weeks of french movies, or Almodovar restrospective...). At the Museo de Arte, where the Filomteca is, they give theter and art classes, cheap and with good professionnals.
