Chileans have a reputation for being more reserved than other South Americans. But that hardly seems to apply to Santiago’s nightlife; it is just as lively and fun as in Buenos Aires and Lima. Locals party in the numerous bars and clubs of the Chilean capital as if there is no tomorrow.
Santiago’s nightlife gets off to a late start. Before the Santiaguinos head to a bar or club, they first come together after dinner for a ‘previa’ or pre-party. Most clubs open their doors around 11:00 pm, begin to fill up after 1:00 am and only close when the sun comes up. Chileans then typically tuck into a ‘lomito’ or ‘completo’ (a hot dog or steak sandwich) before partying until late in the afternoon at an after party. Each nightlife district has its own vibe and appeals to a particular crowd. Here are the top 3 Santiago nightlife destinations.
