If you’re a lover of good food, this neighborhood is a must. Barrio Lastarria offers some of the city’s best restaurants in addition to some great cafes and bars for enjoying a night out. The area is centrally located near the Universidad Católica and Bellas Artes Metro stations.

For dining out, try Mediterranean restaurant Pez Toro, French bistro Les Assassins, or Peruvian eatery Tambo. The restaurant/cafe at cultural center Centro Gabriela Mistral, Gabriela Restaurante, is also a solid option.

Barrio Bellavista
Santiago’s main party district, Barrio Bellavista has bars, restaurants, music venues and clubs for every type of taste. The action centers around the street Pio Nono, but head to Calle Concepción for a slightly more relaxed vibe.

Try über-trendy nightclub Bar Constitución for a memorable night of dancing to live bands and great DJs. Head to the courtyard Patio Bellavista for a more upscale selection of bars and restaurants.
