The Chilean culture is very different from the rest of South America, they party until it’s broken up or they have found something better that came along throughout the night. If you haven’t experienced coming home or to your hotel room at 8 am in the morning from a night of fun, drinking and dancing with your friends, then you haven’t lived your vacation to the fullest. The Chilean people will celebrate anything and everything and have a holiday and a vacation for those days. They also know of all the picada (famous or small yet good) places to drink, eat and just have fun and, of course the important carretes (Parties) that will fill up your night. Every town is different in Chile, some like to party big while others just party at pubs with glasses of wine or other sorts of various alcoholic beverages, but some cities like to offer both styles.
Santiago has some of the biggest clubs in the country. There is diversity all over and it is a great way to meet people from all over the world, since Chile is an upcoming country.
Bellas Artes (Beautiful Arts): Is the nightlife spot for everything, a drink with your friends at the local pub, a dance club for the afterhours and if you have a car, security parking on the streets.
Clubs: Bar Opium, Mito Urbano and Backstage Experience
