Sipping in Santiago: Best Bars
Good wine flows through Santiago, the Chilean capital, like water. Santiago's bars also serve up stellar craft beer, fresh juices, and well-mixed cocktails. Find a seat, a bar stool, or a rooftop lounge to sip in style as the setting sun reflects off the Andes Mountains.

Charming Boutique Hotel in Vibrant Bellavista Neighborhood

Large arrow left

The Aubrey Hotel is full of surprises to be discovered. Whether a cozy, hidden seating area, meringue cake at afternoon tea, or fresh raspberry juice and mango nectar delivered by a delightfully energetic breakfast server, the Aubrey was a terrific base for three nights in Santiago. The hotel consists of two renovated historic mansions in the bohemian Bellavista neighborhood and an added pool terrace and piano lounge. The multicultural staff is bilingual, friendly, and gives great recommendations. Bellavista is a lively, vibrant neighborhood filled with university students, street art, restaurants, and bars and has a busy late-night scene. There are no large hotels nearby, just small hostels and B&Bs. The area exudes character and is easily walkable to La Vega Central (the main produce market), the Museo de Bellas Artes, and other main tourist sites. The hotel is adjacent to Cerro San Cristobal. It is relatively pricey, but if you are looking for a hotel with character and outstanding service, I found the Aubrey to provide great value.
