For nightlife, it’s Bellavista. Start with dinner at Como Agua Para Chocolate as well as Peruvian restaurant Barandiaran, found in Patio Bellavista.

After a fortifying meal, your bar and club alternatives are plentiful. For something a lttle bit different, try Kitemate, the Rapa Nuian (natives of Easter Island) bar at Constitucion #256, where they sometimes use dance performances although you sip your trago.

During the day, explore the neighborhood’s street art. You may also go on a tour of Cerro San Cristobal, the zoo, or Pablo Neruda’s house — La Chascona — at Fernando Márquez en Plata #0192.

3. Ñuñoa

Ñuñoa is really a quiet neighborhood and promises a mellower balancing.

If you’re interested in quality Italian food, and the secret that every one the locals find out about though the tourists don’t, try Golfo di Napoli. Anything for the menu is delicious.
Check it out at Dublé Almeyada #2435.

4. Lastarria

Located on Jose Victorino Lastarria Street, Lastarria is often a neighborhood of cobblestone streets and European architecture. The MAVI (Museum of Visual Arts) at Jose Victorino Lastarria #307 features compelling pieces worth your time and effort and money.

Also visit café Utopia, and Sur Patagónico. Focus on Café Utopia for happy hour and also a long list of mixed drinks. For dinner, walk across the street to Patagonia, order a wine, and sample on the gourmet menu.

5. Barrio Brasil

Along Avenida Brasil and surrounding Plaza Brasil, there are a handful of cheaper bars and restaurants. At Huerfanos 1954, on the plaza, they serve things i have to say is the ideal empanadas in the city.

Barrio Brasil is another popular destination for a grab 2 during happy hour, and plenty of locals frequent Blondie Snack Bar at Avenida Brasil #171, a bar that plays ‘80s music.

6. Parque Bustamante

Parque Bustamante, between metro stations Baquedano and Parque Bustamante, is my favorite area. The tree-lined park with wading pool plus a meandering trail is my refuge with the big city.

There’s somewhat gym called Bio Accion near Baquedano, obtaining the relatively cheap month-to-month memberships as well as a large list of classes for those on a protracted stay.

Café Literario, an open-air café on the very beginning on the library, is a great destination for a relax. It’s perfectly located at the core of the park possesses lots of couches, chairs, and tables, coupled with free WiFi and plugs for your personal computer.
