Being part Irish and visiting Santiago on business, I suggested to a local business colleague that we visit Flannery's on St. Patrick's day. I gave him the history of St. Patrick and how the day was the considered the principal celebration by folk of Irish heritage worldwide. He brought his wife along and we arrived after dinner around 11:PM.with the intention of enjoying the event and Irish music. Minus 15,000 Pesos (+/- $30 U.S.) and 15 minutes later we left. I know pubs tend to crowd up on St. Pat's but this was absolutely rediculous (and dangerous). You literally had to squeeze your way through the crowd the bands were playing in a tent in the back and that area too was cramped as tight as a sardine can. It was impossible to see the band and impossible to get to one of the bar areas to order a drink. Net, net: A nightmare. I asked where I might find the owner in order to ask for a refund, but he of course was unavailable. The correct and decent thing for them to have done would have been to stop allowing entry after a certain number of people had entered. I'm certain that the maximum occupancy figure was way (and I mean way) surpassed. Thank god there was no sort of event that could have triggered a panic, no doubt there would have been a number of injuries and fatalities.
I would much rather have had a gun pointed at me and robbed. At least that would have been a clean and honest robbery. One last point, the 5,000 peso entry was supposed to have included a 2,000 peso voucher good towards your first drink, that wasn't given either.
This bar is not anything like an "Authentic Irish Bar", it is not owned by an Irishman, as quoted on other reviews, does not serve Guiness, the food is below average in quality but well above average in price. All in all a waste of time going there. Staff are very slow in serving, but some are friendly. The owner appears to be a very miserable person ( Englishman ) who does not make you feel welcome. Inside the place is actually a bit run-down and could do with a good cleaning. Best thing about it is the fact that during good weather, there is outside seating, but the drawback of sitting there, service becomes even slower.
Title speaks for itself, which is very dissapointing (it is worse to realise that to have a bit of the black stuff you have to go to Brazil or Argentina. Not the same....I would recommend you bring a few cans).
The ground floor is more of a restaurante than a bar; the second floor is more of a bar (but not a Pub)
I have to say that staff are not great when it comes to service...it is like they can not be bothered.
I live in Santiago. This is a great Irish style pub for Santiago which does not have that many authentic English/Irish/American type watering holes. However, they do not serve Guiness. In fact I have not found Guiness draught or X-Stout in any bar in Santiago. G-draught was available in Buenos Aires, Arg., but only at $8 US a pint. I am guessing that if they did serve it at the Geo Pub the pricing was probably the same and that is why it did not last. They do have a stout beer on draft, but I can not remember what - I want to say it is Beamish. No Jager and no Guinesss in Santiago bars - sorry. They do now sell Jager at the Jumbo near me, so that is a plus. And by the way the food at Flannery's is pretty good, so try it out. The place is in El America, I mean El Golf so the cost is not cheap. It will be crowded on Th, Fri, Sat for sure.
This pub is near to Toba subway station, the hotels in the world trade centre and close enough for clubbing afterwards in either Provedencia or over the river to the seedier places. The Guinness was imported by the landlord, and had a good taste, but slightly pricey compared to the local lagers. Very friendly bar staff, and like everywhere in Santiago, very hospitable locals.
Good food if you don't mind having everything deep fried, but as you can stay from afternoon until night, it is a good stomach liner - especially if you plan a few Pisco's later!
This genuinely owned Irish pub is located on a silly wee road just round from 'Uni Marc' at Tobalaba and easy walking distance to late night clubs in Providencia. Excellent pub atmosphere. Great crowd on Thursday nights during the Touch Rugby Season and an upstairs that you can reserve for a party with entertainment from trendy arty bands to cheesey Kareoke. Fantastic pub grub includes everything from fajitas to chicken korma to line the stomach, and like most places in Chile cheap as chips compared to the UK. Enjoy.
