There are plenty of places to listen to jazz in Santiago, not least in the district of Bellavista. Known as the city's bohemian area, popular with students and party goers, there are numerous bars with live jazz.
One of the best is Le Fournil, a restaurant-cum-jazz bar with seating pouring out onto three different terraces, bistro style food (like meat and cheese platters washed down with good red wine) and a somewhat unexpected basement bar, home to the Bellavista Jazz Club.
On warm nights, dinners eat al fresco in the courtyard of Patio Bellavista, whilst the ceramic floored jazz bar resounds with the sound of music. There's a printed schedule each month outlining what's in store each week from Monday to Saturday night.
With two sessions, one starting at 10pm and the next at 11pm, you can dip in and out as you please. Entrance fees range from CLP $2,500 on Tuesdays, to CLP $3,000 on Wednesdays and CLP $3,500 from Thursday to Saturday.
