Nightlife in Santiago it’s gonna make you lose your mind!! Carrete!!

Ya les contamos mucho sobre actividades que pueden hacer en Santiago y les mostramos hartas festivales y ahora encontramos que es tiempo de mostrarles también lo que pasa en Santiago en las Noches.

Karaokes, discotecas, música en viv, bares de moda, casinos, teatros, cultura y cines forman parte de las entretenidas alternativas que ofrecen los barrios bohemios de la capital para pasar una noche inolvidable.

Los Chilenos son muy bueno para celebrar, también si no haya fuenterazón ninguna… 🙂 Les gusta la fiesta/Party, que en chile se llama el carrete. Se sale tarde y uno se devuelve temprano en la mañana… por el after-hour. También hay lugares donde venden bocados para revitalizar el cuerpo, tales como lomitos o completos, dos de los más típicos sándwiches chilenos. Los chilenos suelen referirse a estos platos como ”el bajón”, al estar destinados a combatir el hambre y los efectos de la temida resaca, que los chilenos llaman ”caña”.

Aquí les mostramos unos barrios adonde seguro que van a poder encontrar actividades de noche, si sea bar, club, disco, restaurantes, música en vivo, teatro o más. En otros artículos (que seguirán) les vamos a presentar unos lugares en detalles aquí una pequeña vista general.

Para salir lo más popular es el barrio bellavista (comuna providencia y patio bellavistarecoleta). Bellavista se encuentra caminando como a 15 Minutos de nuestro hostal que se encuentra en providencia. En la entrada de Bellavista encuentras el Patio Bellavista adonde hay muchos restaurantes que son perfectos para empezar con un buen aperitivo y algo para picar, una noche entretenido. Después se puede pasar por dos calles que están llenos de bares, discos, etc. que son la calle pio nono y concepción. Hay muchos lugares con todo tipo música. O te puedes quedar en el patio bellavista y visitar por ejemplo el Backstage con espectáculos de música en vivo y, el Cachafaz que además de ser un buen lugar para tomar unas copas es un teatro café concert con presentaciones de tango, humoristas y hasta karaoke.

En la comuna Nuñoa se encuentra la plaza Nuñoa, que esplaza nuñoa más tranquillo que el barrio bellavista pero lleno de bares, pubs y restaurantes también. Para ir a tomar algo con amigos y picotear algo típico, por ejemplo una plmichelada helada con una chorillana, es perfecto. También se puede comer muy rico para poca plata por ejemplo en unos restaurantes peruanos que hay allá. Y obviamente que también ahí hay algunos lugares para bailar o con música en vivo, a quien le gusta el rock por ejemplo tendría que ir a la “batuta”.

En Providencia hay una calle, que se llama Manuel Montt, liguriaahí también puedes encontrar cualquier bar, clubs y karaoke. El lugar más famoso en esta calle es  Liguria, con su gastronomía chilena y buenos tragos y el mito urbano que al momento tienen todos los miércoles karaoke, los jueves música en vivo y el viernes nosotros del Aji Hostel vamos con todos nuestros pasajeros al mito urbano y todos nuestros huéspedes entran gratis!!

Asi hay muchos lugares en Santiago y la vida nocturna es todos los días…. Eso fue una pequeña impresión de los barrios para que cuando quieren salir sin saber en qué disco, club, pub o bar terminan. Si buscan algo específico esperen los artículos que voy a escribir después de visitar algunos lugares más J ya tengo un lugar en mente que se los quiero recomendar….


Ingles:

We told you already a lot about activities you can do in Santiago and talked about festivals and so on, now we found that it is time to also show you what happens in Santiago in the Nights.

Karaoke, discos, live music, trendy bars, casinos, theaters, cinemas and culture are part of the entertaining alternatives offered from the bohemian neighborhoods of the capital for an unforgettable night.

The Chileans are very good to celebrate, even if there is no reason any … 🙂 fuente We like to party, which in Chile is “carrete”. You leave already at night and returne early in the morning … for the after-hour. There are also places where they sell snacks to revitalize the body, such as tenderloin or completo, two of the most typical Chilean sandwiches. Chileans often refer to these dishes as “bajon”, being intended to combat hunger and the effects of the dreaded hangover, that Chileans call “caña”.

Here we show a certain neighborhoods where you can find night activities, whether it be a bar, club, disco, restaurants, live music, theater and more. In other articles (to come) we are going to present some places into details, here a small overview.

The most popular is the Bellavista neighborhood (commune Providencia and Recoleta). patio bellavistaBellavista is located about 15 minutes to walk from our hostel located in Providencia. At the entrance you find the Patio Bellavista where there are many restaurants that are perfect to start with a drink and nibbles a fun night. Then you can go through two streets which are full of bars, discos, etc. which are the street Pio Nono and constitución. There are many places with all kind of music. Or you can stay in the Bellavista patio and visit such Backstage with performances of live music and the Cachafaz that besides being a good place for a drink. It is a theater café concert with performances by tango, comedians and even karaoke.

In Nuñoa neighborhood is the Nuñoa plaza, which is more quiet plaza nuñoathan the Bellavista but full of bars, pubs and restaurants also. To go for a drink with friends and peck is typical, plfor example an icy michelada with a chorillana, it’s perfect. You can also eat very rich for such little money in a Peruvian restaurants that are there. And obviously there’s also some places for dancing or live music, who likes rock for example would have to go to the “batuta”.

In Providencia is a street called Manuel Montt, there you can also find many bar, clubs and karaoke. The most famous place in this street is liguriaLiguria, with its Chilean cuisine and good drinks and the urban myth that when you have every Wednesday karaoke on Thursdays live music and on Friday we Aji Hostel we go with all our passengers to urban myth and all our guests are free!! This street is like 10 minutes from our hostel away.

So many places in Santiago and nightlife is every day … That was a small impression of neighborhoods so that when you want to leave without knowing what disco, club, pub or bar you’ll end up you already have an idea. If you are looking for something specific,  expect articles I’ll write after visiting some more places J and I have already a place in mind that I want to recommend ….

Moreover their really good wines they also have flavorful dishes (ex: ribs with wine sauce and mashed sweet potatoes). At last, waiters speak English which is unusual in Chile.

peluqueria3

        I must confess this article won’t be written with an objective mind since I’m French. But I’m really proud to recommend this restaurant. They offer an unbelievable French food and desserts are toothsome. The owner is as well really proud of his restaurant designed in a former French barber shop from 1868 (then peluqueria francesa makes sense!). The design is full of small details which will catch your attention throughout your meal. Moreover it is located in the really nice bohemian neighborhood but anyway just the place deserves a look.

       Located in the famous Bellavista neighborhood, the surroundings of this restaurant are splendid with a New-York Style: bricks, wood and beer barrels.  Uncle Fletch raises the Hamburgers to the rank of gourmet dishes. The Supreme Blue Cheese or the Cheese cake will satisfy your hunger, the burgers are generous and the pan and the home-made French fries are delectable: crunchy at the top and spongy inside! Moreover the staff is welcoming, they speak English and they recommend you well.

Finally the waiters are good advisers and speak English.
