The Muse Too is a nice spot for laid-back cocktails and the camaraderie of international travelers. A groovy bar also in Urubamba is Inti Killa, Av. Grau 708 (no phone), which sounds as though it could be named for a Peruvian rap star (though the word "Killa" is Quechua for house). About a block from the main square, the bar/club has hip dance beats, a large dance floor separate from the bar and a lounge area, and good pitchers of pisco sours.

Chicha Here, Get Your Warm Chicha -- Throughout the valley, you'll see modest homes marked by long poles topped by red flags (or red balloons). These chicha flags indicate that home-brewed fermented maize beer, or chicha, is for sale inside. What you'll usually find is a small, barren room with a handful of locals quietly drinking huge tumblers of pale yellow liquid. Tepid chicha, which costs next to nothing, is definitely an acquired taste.
