Gastronomy and Nightlife

Santiago has a surprisingly good nightlife that is not far removed from that of the world’s great party capitals. As sophisticated trend‑watchers, Santiaguinos don’t do stereotypical fiestas, so get ready for a bar and club culture with a distinctly cosmopolitan feel. The key to approaching nightlife in Santiago is etiquette. Locals may be easygoing and undemanding in many aspects of life, but when it comes to partying, they are dead serious. Another vital consideration is timing: dinner before 9 PM or clubbing before midnight are alien concepts to fashionable Santiago.
