This is an historic bar dating back to the early 20th century done in dark wood and full of photos of Hollywood stars of bygone days along with nautical touches. We were here for lunch and sampled the Pisco sours, crab and cheese empanadas (large...More

Bar La Playa is in the seriously tourist/business/port area of Valpariso, the part of the city that seems like a "real" city with traffic, big buildings, men in suits, cruise ship refugees, and so forth. We stopped in on the recommendation of a local acquaintance...More

Definitely worth a visit if you are after that old port tavern atmosphere. You can tell lots of life has passed in there.

I think it was warmer outside than inside the bar. There local beer selection was good though. Maybe with poor people in It the atmosphere and ttemperature would be better

Very good situated and always friendly staff. Marvellous food and full of history. Opening hours better than in other restaurants in town and a very safe place.

I've been to this bar many times and it's somewhere that I always take first time visitors to Valparaiso - it's got that rustic old port feel. The barman makes a great Pisco Sour and it's got some local beers. Food is ok.
