Fodor's Expert Review El Rincón de Las Guitarras (Casa de Cueca)
Get a double shot of porteño (port city) nightlife at this classic restaurant with two rooms that feature two different acts simultaneously. Go ahead and try the traditional Chilean food, but the real reason to come is for the cueca, Chile's national dance. Forget everything you might know about the traditional folklore show. This is the gutsy, gritty, eye-to-eye, forehead-to-forehead cueca chora, which has undergone a revival in the past few decades. If you want a table, you'll need to come early—and plan on staying into the wee hours.
