Beer, Salt and Fatty Foods, Spray Paint and Karaoke, Gays and Geezers, Smart People and Morons, a great cocktail of reasonably-priced night life. Oops, pretty much everything closes at 11 pm on Sunday night. Back to the Coppermine!

I adore Santiago, Chile and all the wonderful areas the city offers for visiting and enjoyment over multiple visits. I have almost NEVER been disappointed however the highly touted Barrio Bellavista was an unfortunate surprise and disappointment. It is dirty, smelly, restaurants and bars are...More

Lovely neighborhood in Santiago, great place to walk around. We were only there for a short time but enjoyed it. Seems like the area where 20-somethings hangout at. Totally recommend stopping by Patio Bellavista there was well, lots of restaurants and bars.

this is a very turistic place, great places to eat and drink something... if you go at night just be careful with the thieves out side... in Chile you always have to be careful with that... they are very fast... always check your personal stuff

Streets full of roadside cafes, restaurants and at night it turns into bars & clubs. So many great places to eat and bonus that happy hour is most of the day.

The Barrio Bellavista is a bohemian neighbourhood full of great bars, restaurants, live music, fantastic architecture and amazing street art. I stayed here for the only night I had in Santiago and wasn't disappointed. I spent most of my time wandering the streets looking at...More

Forget the hype. not particularly interesting. There's really only 1 street with restaurants. There might be a craft type market but it was uninteresting. There are some interesting museums/ galleries there which are interesting. It's hardly a 'tourist attraction'. See for yourself.

The first view is not too good, but once you start walking you can feel part of the chilean people; do not forget to visit Patio Bellavista, a local market to buy artesanal souvenirs.

Enjoyed walking through city on a Saturday. Was careful but was able to take pictures with camera. Santiago has definitely changed in the 12 years since we last visited. Area great to shop, eat and walk around on spring day.

Hello Colorado. Great walking, food and drink. The problem you will have is choosing which one. Ask for a LAN shuttle to town if you are flying with them.. Maybe free transportation. Enjoy it's better than the airport
