El Cinzano - Bar Valparaíso - Chile

When you come to Bar Cinzano, you’re in for a night steeped in “vino arreglado” (wine mixed with better-quality wine, sugar or liquor) and joyful nostalgia. The food in this century-old bar is typical Chilean fare dominated by flavorful parrilladas (BBQ) and potatoes, but the real attraction reveals itself in the evening—10 p.m. at the earliest, Wednesday-Saturday—when an ancient trio of musicians takes the stage, just as they’ve done for decades, to play old tango tunes for a rapt audience. Diners will often join in singing the chorus of “Valparaíso Eterno” or will take a partner and dance tango across the small dining area. This legendary Valpo experience is not to be missed on any account.

Hours: Mon-Thurs 9 p.m.-2 a.m., Fri and Sat 9:30 p.m.-5 a.m.
