It's no secret that Latinos like to party. And when I say party, I mean that rolling home at 2am is an early night and 6am is pretty standard. So, if you're a fan of letting your hair down then there's lots of fun to be had in the Chilean capital.

Barrio Vitacura, Providencia and Lastarria have some great bars for cocktails where you can start the evening off. Then, to step things up a notch, there's a new bar called Boudoir in Bellavista which transforms from tables to dancefloor at midnight.

Youngsters may enjoy Onaciu, a large club also in Bellavista with live music. But those who want to keep things civilised can head to a wine bar, like Baco in Providencia, to see in the weekend sipping Chilean reds and nibbling cheese. 

Then, of course, there's the salsa scene. Klub Mangosta in Providencia has lessons and sessions for all levels, so you can learn the basics or swing with the pros. Don't be surprised to find a lesson starts at 11pm on a weekday... "late" has a different meaning in Chile!
