It’s easy enough to fill your days in Santiago, with long walks, museums, views from one of two hills over the city, or even a nearby hike or day trip. But what about when night comes, and it’s time to make the most of it? Where should you go out in Santiago? Here’s a guide to four neighborhoods where Chileans and locals alike go to make merry in the evening and into the night. Beer, wine and pisco sours are optional.

Gastronomical offerings all over Chile are growing more and more international, with an African fusion restaurant way down south in Puerto Natales, and a cluster of gourmet restaurants in the northern outpost of San Pedro de Atacama. In Santiago, sushi and pizza are popular and newly, so are Thai, Korean and fusion.

Chilean wine is famous the world over, but in the fertile northern valleys of the country, you’ll see wide green areas planted with grapes for making pisco, a grape-based distilled alcohol that varies from 30-43 % alcohol. But most importantly, where there’s pisco, you’ll find the tart, refreshing pisco sour.
