Owner Freddy Castiblanco, a doctor and amateur artist originally from Colombia, has created a space somewhere between venue, bar, and community center at Terraza 7. The clientele–largely South American expats chattering away in Spanish along with a few adventurous neighborhood newbies–have a variety of entertainment options: Thursdays are for Latin Jazz, when Afro-Peruvian jams and South American folk often ring out, and every first Tuesday of the month is the poetry jam (there are also the occasional art shows, D.J.'s, and workshops). The action goes on upstairs, where a small performance space hangs on wires, but most of the room is on the ground floor, which feels spacious thanks to full-wall windows, tall beams, and a multitude of mirrors. The space is furnished with shabby-chic couches, two fully functioning hammocks, and scattered pillows; colorful crochet streamers hang from the ceiling; glass hearts and terra-cotta crosses line the bright yellow wall over statues of saints, skulls, and seasonal vegetables; and Christmas lights twinkle against the margarita and martini glasses above the bar.
