- Manuel Montt street. Take the subway and get off at the Manuel Montt station. Several bars and restaurants in the area are open until late hours of the evening and onto the early morning hours too.
- Suecia avenue is a popular spot for foreigners; many of the bars, like Irish and Boston style pubs, are specifically designed to attract foreign customers. The bars and nightclubs are often more upscale than Bellavista and are not as crowded. Suecia avenue offers many nightclubs and is considered one of the best places for a night of salsa dancing.
- Barrio Bellavista at night is Santiago's liveliest neighborhood. The bars are generally inexpensive and the district boasts dance clubs of many genres, including salsa and techno. Restaurants range from cheap pizza to fine French cuisine.
Bellavista's main street, Pío Nono, is an attraction in itself. Street vendors have colorful booths along the sidewalks. They offer anything from paintings and souvenirs to kebobs and bamboo saxophones. Pío Nono is very crowded on weekends, so beware of pickpockets.
To get to Bellavista, take the metro to the Baquedano Station or take a bus to Plaza Italia. Follow Pío Nono north across the Mapocho River. After a few blocks, you will know when you are in Bellavista.
