About Us

Alternative. Independent. Insider.

Welcome to Chile's only English-language digital magazine devoted to the arts & entertainment scene!

Revista Revolver was founded in 2008 with the goal of becoming a comprehensive source of information on cultural events and entertainment in the bustling metropolitan Santiago area and beyond. Over seven years later we're still at it - exploring the city, going to shows, checking out restaurants and promising you an experience that's off the beaten path.

We're not associated with any business communities or larger corporate organizations, and we frankly aren't interested in any of that. We're 100% independent and our goal is simple: to provide you, the reader, with interesting content, with an alternative guide to Chile, and with "insider" information from people actually living in the country who are constantly striving to discover new and interesting events or places to share with you.

Our Work

Revista Revolver covers everything from local neighborhoods, to sushi restaurants in the city to local up-and-coming bands. We've recently added an article map to help you find relevant articles nearby, and our agenda is by far one of the most comprehensive ones in the city with new events added daily (yes, daily). We've even produced our own parties and events.

Our work is supported by hard-working (and fun-loving) writers, editors and photographers who, despite the toxic smog, insane public transportation system and occasional tear-gassing by riot police, can’t get enough of Chile's cultural scene. It's thanks to our staff that we quickly became the official entertainment and events magazine for the Santiago Times and have been featured, recommended or referenced in media ranging from paperback guide books to CNN Chile.
