An offshoot of a dramatic Patagonia lodge, the Singular Santiago Lastarria lives up to its name. In the heart of the city’s lively Lastarria neighborhood, known for its restaurants and nightlife, the neo-classical building is firmly a part of the scene with its own buzzy rooftop bar, but guests find calm in the spacious rooms, muted with a color palette of cream and gray, and marble bathrooms with deep soaking tubs. Bird print-bedecked Bar Merced is the perfect pre-dinner spot for a drink—try the Clover club, a mix of Bombay, lemon juice, raspberry puree, albumin, and a dash of syrup—though the rooftop bar is where to take the party, post-meal.
