Café Journal - Bar Viña del Mar - Chile

Café Journal mainly caters to a cool college crowd, though it also tends to attract swarms of gringos (hence its nickname Café Gringo). Locals and foreigners alike congregate here for cold beers and hard drinks (be warned—your piscola is more pisco than cola!), in a fun, funky atmosphere. Every available surface of the restaurant is covered in risqué magazine cutouts and posters, further adding to the venue’s hip-factor. The place is huge—two stories, and offers indoor and outdoor seating, as well as several dance floors. Food options include empanadas, pizzas, salads, and sandwiches, and there’s a never-ending drink menu. Prices aren’t exactly cheap, but aren’t bad for expensive Viña del Mar, and the friendly bilingual staff works hard to ensure your satisfaction.
