Restaurants and Cafes of Gay Friendly Santiago Chile

Like most big cities, Santiago offers a wide spectrum of options from high-end restaurants to late-night fast food joints.  For gay travelers the cluster of restaurants, bars, and clubs in Bellavista are extremely popular.  The “restaurant row” of the neighborhood is Pio Nono street which is easily walkable from the string of gay bars on Bombero Núñez.

Aside from restaurants, a decent percentage of Santiago’s gay bars offer tapas-style menus.  (Use the VamosGay Google Map of Santiago to plan your trip, or navigate the city on your mobile phone.)

No, that’s not a typo for a French restaurant.  The name really is Los Miserables and it’s popular Bellavista Mexican joint.  Fans of San Francisco taquerias will feel right at home with tasty burritos and tacos.

Weekend brunch with friends is not as popular in Chile as it is in Europe and the US.  However, Bellavista bistro White Rabbit may change that with their phenomenal brunch menu.  See for yourself at the White Rabbit website.
