By no means is Coyhaique considered a party place, but there are not many things more rewarding than capping off a hike or day in the woods with a cold beverage. Be it a cocktail, cerveza, wine with dinner, or just a fizzing ice cold soda, you will find what’s on your radar with these bar options.
This gastropub is a great place if you want to stay put and enjoy your night in one place as you have the option of a long list of pub grub from pasta, chicken and potatoes, fish, steaks and veggie options, as well as beers, cocktails, and even karaoke if you are feeling shameless enough.

If there is one thing that Belgians know, it is the art of beer and this Belgian restaurant is a little wooden pub in the flagship location for the Dolbek beer brewed right here in Coyhaique. Try the Belgian lager, unfiltered wheat ale, or fruit infused beer and introduce it to a warm, juicy burger and you’ve created a match made in heaven.
A cozy wooden bar in the center of Coyhaique that is an easy choice if you or your drinking buddy can only enjoy a beverage if the music is good. This place has a long list of beers, spirits, and plays terrific classic rock from Pink Floyd to David Bowie and the Beatles. Also helps the travel budget that most days of the week they run promotions and drink specials as well as decently priced pub food.
A fitting name as Deja Vu might be a place you come back to again and again in your few days in Coyhaique. Very reasonably priced food to share like pizzas, tacos, and ceviche with microbrewery beers and mixed drinks to wash it all down.
A bit of wordplay with the Looney Toon’s character Pepe Le Pew, this pub opens up as the sun goes down and stays open late so you have plenty of time to get the drinks in and let the good times roll, and is a local watering hole with live traditional banda music on the weekends.

As the name suggests, this bar feels like an old (viejo) western saloon with a calming low light and a big winding bar to lean against serving hench sandwiches, hearty salads and finger foods to fill up even the most famished cowboy.
Even though Nativo Austral says they specialize in wine and beer – which they do – they are also a bar that takes as much pride in its food as its drink. Artisan beers on tap, quality domestic wines to enjoy with a towering burger, fish and chips, or a meter long pizza – yes, you read that correctly.
Space 21 is a new bar in Coyhaique that likes to stay open late, promote a good night out, and even serve free bits of sushi to ensure you hang around! On the weekends they also have house DJs and live music as this is one of the main places to let loose in Coyhaique.
Looking for a sports bar to eat and watch the game? You should be keeping your eyes peeled for Bajo Marquesina and the sign that says “Here begins the most beautiful 90 minutes of sport in the world!” and you will know you are in good hands. Jerseys hung on the walls from all different nations and good pub food, and great beer to keep you comfortable no matter the game’s outcome.
If you want to grab some drinks and turn your hotel room into your own tasting bar, then check out The Little Bodega which is a hipster joint done right. A long list of artisan beers including Los Torreones and Cuello Negro from Valdivia, and La Finisterra from the tiny port town of Puerto Cisnes (just to name a few), and also different types of infused tea, and flavoured yerba mate for those who won’t be drinking tonight.
