Rapa Nui

Bar, Sandwich Shop, German, South American, $$$
Save to wishlist

This authentic local spot, named after the indigenous Rapa Nui tribe of Easter Island, attracts a lively and diverse crowd in the Providencia neighborhood. Though their sandwiches are tasty, this establishment is best known for its bartender’s heavy pour. The bar serves up the strongest piscolas (pisco and Coke) in the city. There’s not much to the décor in this place, as it’s much more of a hole-in-the-wall kind of bar. Due to the extra strong drinks, you’re wise to order a typical Chilean sandwich to go with your powerful piscola.
