Saturday night in Santiago

What to do for a single night in Santiago, Chile?

I have a *very* short stopover in Santiago de Chile, arriving early afternoon Saturday 17 April and leaving early the next morning.

1. Can you recommend a good place to stay that's relatively convenient for the airport, and also to places to eat and maybe catch some live music?

2. What's a good place to go and hear some live music, preferably something local, maybe folksy, but I'm not averse to something like, say, a Deep Purple covers band playing a pub if that's what's available?

stay somewhere (im no help there...)

just make sure you eat ceviche. i HIGHLY recommend:

La Mar‎
found at:
Avenida Nueva Costanera 3922, Santiago, Chile

as for the folksy stuff i've got news for you, you gotta go pretty far to find it. everything i saw while i was there was either dancey or extremely alt rock... all good though. there is a lot to do in costanera though so you shouldn't have trouble finding some live music.

but seriously get the ceviche.

There isn't really anything around the airport, except for the attached holiday inn. Better to go into downtown to find a hotel. I can't recommend anything specific though. The Crowne Plaza Hotel is really nice, but I don't think I would ever stay there if I had to pay for it myself (Thanks LAN Chile!).
