Chileans have a reputation for being more reserved than many of their Latin American cousins, but they also like to have a good time. Santiaguinos especially love the nightlife – even on weeknights, bars are packed with after-work and after-school crowds, their tables cheerfully heaving under empty bottles and beer jugs. From rowdy pubs to cozy wine bars, there’s always a great watering hole nearby. Join the locals as they debate politics, discuss poetry, sing, dance, flirt and share some laughs. Or compare hiking routes and blisters with fellow adventurers at a traveller-centric microbrewery in Patagonia. Either way, you’re spoiled for choice. Here are just some of our favourite hangouts.
