As Chile’s most glamorous seaside resort, it’s no surprise Viña del Mar has a plethora of glitzy nightclubs to choose from. From pumping EDM temples to South America’s biggest gay club, let’s take a closer look at the after dark entertainment on offer in the city.

1. Café Journal

Bar, Contemporary, Wine, Beer, Cocktails, Pub Grub, Chilean

A laid back café by day and a thumping electro club by night, you’re bound to find some music you like in one of Café Journal’s three booming dance floors. The venue is huge, featuring an abundance of space to sit, eat, drink, dance and be merry. They’ve been doing their thing for over 18 years so you know they’ve got to be on to something.

With a state of the art sound system, crisscrossing laser beams and endless confetti raining down from above, Ovo is the go-to spot for a crazy big club experience in Viña. Located on the second floor of the city casino, up to 600 revelers pack it out on weekends and don’t even think about leaving until the break of dawn. Don’t like crowds? Check out their exclusive upstairs VIP area instead.

3. Hollywood Experience

Bar, Pub, Contemporary, Wine, Beer, Cocktails, Pub Grub, Chilean

A taste of Hollywood in downtown Viña del Mar, this happening nightspot is all about the glamour of the silver screen. Adorned with all sorts of celebrity paraphernalia, the drinks are huge and the punters are always up for a good time. Whether it’s hitting up the bustling dance floor or sitting back for a quiet drink, there’s plenty for everyone in this blockbuster club.

5. Stingray

Bar, Nightclub, Contemporary, Beer, Wine, Cocktails, Pub Grub, Chilean

A great option for those not so keen on electro is Stringray, a popular downtown club that plays everything from pop to ska and reggaeton. With two dance floors, one of which is absolutely massive, and a large bar area selling reasonably priced drinks, it’s an awesome alternative night out. Just be sure to arrive early as the queue seems to stretch on forever.

6. Rufino

Bar, Nightclub, Contemporary, Beer, Wine, Pub Grub, Cocktails

A club that offers a little bit of everything, Rufino boasts a karaoke room, live music and dance performances, two fully stocked bars, an outdoor terrace featuring a restaurant with table service, live DJs and, of course, a packed out dance floor. All things considered, they do a pretty good job at keeping everyone happy.

7. Club Divino

Bar, Nightclub, Contemporary, American, Wine, Beer, Cocktails, Pub Grub

Touting itself as the biggest gay venue in Latin America, this massive superclub’s numerous floors include a conversation and chill out space, a rowdy cabaret room, a VIP lounge, a smokers’ terrace, and a heaving and hedonistic dance floor. With room for 2,000 rowdy revelers, LGBT travelers won’t find a better club on the continent.
