NileGuide Expert tip:
Happy hours from 6 to 9:30 bring lower prices and a mellow crowd to this traditional Irish bar.
One of the first things you'll notice about Celtika Irish Bar in Chile's hopping Patio Bellavista, is that it's authentically Irish. The owners are Irish, there is Irish beer, even Irish tea on the menu, and many real Irish items that will bring you back home, or at least to the last authentic Irish bar you visited.
They serve more than 50 varieties of beer, including Guinness, and Newcastle Brown Ale (from Ireland) and many varieties of Chilean craft beer as well as several examples of German beers, including three varieties of Holsten and three of Erdinger.
The menu has some typical international fare, like chips and guacamole, potato skins, and the like, but you can also get beans on toast, and for dessert, Kerry berry, with whipped cream and jam. For a little taste of home (they even have Lyon's tea), you won't want to miss Celtika.
