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: Latin Jazz, when Afro-Peruvian jams and South American folk often ring out, and poetry jams (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.
