Santiago is a sea of bars, cafes, restaurants, lounges and clubs, and boasts some of the best nightlife spots, whatever your preference. Thousands of travellers flock to Chile’s capital every night in search of a night out and a break from the culture overload, after being promised by their tour guide that they will have the best night of their life. Which they will – if they know how to do it right. Luckily for you, we’ve put together the ultimate package for a night out in Santiago.
7.30 pm – Dinner
A lot of people wouldn’t even consider this first stage as part of the nightlife package but it’s actually one of the most important parts. If you start the night with a poor dinner and don’t line your stomach with some proper food, you’re destined to be passed out in bed before the club has even opened its doors. Hit up Buffalo Waffles, located in the hipster Barrio Lastarria, a quick and easy fix that will leave you feeling satisfied but not overly full so there’s still plenty of room for drinks. It’s also cheap ($3.500 CLP for a waffle) and just a short walk from Bellavista, the part of town with all the bars.
