La Piojera

La Piojera is a favorite among locals and an authentic meeting place where popular urban links can be recognized. It was established as a bar in 1896 and has become one of the city’s oldest and most beloved picás (dive bars). Trying a terremoto here is a must on every trip to Santiago.

Bars & Nightlife

Santiago's nightlife takes place mainly outside the historic city centre, in the downtown area. The Bellavista district, in particular, is known for its quirky bars, lively restaurants, and buzzing nightclubs. In the Barrio Brasil, you will have the opportunity to get to know the somewhat less-touristy side of Santiago's nightlife and find many smaller pubs and bars that are popular among the locals. Recently, the middle-class district of Ñuñoa has become increasingly popular among those who want to spend an evening away from the, perhaps, a bit too alternative Bellavista district. To complete the picture of what Santiago's nightlife is like, add a forward-looking music scene, a great interest in design, and a wide selection of craft beers to this colourful mix.
