Valparaiso in Depth.
Eat, drink and be merry in style! You’ll find a thriving nightlife scene in all of Chile’s main cities, many of which boast a glittering casino. In summer, the top beach resorts pull out all the stops and you’ll find bright lights, lively music festivals and glamorous shows.
So, put on your glad rags and prepare to enjoy the high life. In Santiago, the Bellavista area is synonymous with all-night partying. Here on the banks of the Mapocho river you’ll find countless bars, restaurants and nightclubs. Or head to the downtown Lastarria and Yungay neighborhoods for a more bohemian, artsy atmosphere. Its art galleries and fashionable bars resonate to an ever changing soundtrack; from Latin dance music to avant-garde rock and the idiosyncratic ‘cueca chora’ (a rollicking variant of the classic national folk dance, the cueca).
The port of Valparaiso is also famous for its bustling nightlife. There are dozens of bars, cafes and pubs scattered across its picturesque hills, many open well into the small hours. If you’re a music lover, you mustn’t miss Concepción, a city renowned for its music scene. The birthplace of many famous musicians, the city also hosts a varied calendar of concerts and has a wide range of thriving live music venues.
Throughout Chile, nightlife goes into overdrive in summer. In cities like Arica, Iquique, La Serena, Pucón and Valdivia, you’ll find a profusion of arts events, live entertainment and open air festivals. Get ready to live it up after the sun goes down!
