The boldness, courage, and leadership of the Antarctic explorer have inspired the ambiance of our restaurant, bar, and lounges.

We have dedicated our restaurant, its lounges, and bar to the expedition undertaken between 1914-1916 by this explorer and his special invitation by Sara Braun to her mansion.

This is why three of our lounges bear the names of the main leaders of this incredible expedition, which did not fulfill its dream of crossing Antarctica  but achieved the most difficult feat: survival.

In August 1914, Sir Ernest Shackleton set sail aboard the Endurance for the South Atlantic, with the aim of undertaking the first trans-Antarctic journey on foot. On January 18, 1915, the Endurance became trapped in the ice. In April 1916, over a year later, Shackleton, along with five other men, set out in a small boat in search of help.

After braving the stormy Drake Passage, Shackleton managed to ensure that at the end of August, his crew was rescued by the Chilean Navy’s Yelcho, commanded by pilot Luis Pardo. They arrived triumphantly in Punta Arenas on September 3, 1916.

With its fine European-style decoration, Hotel José Nogueira, Endurance Restaurant, and Shackleton Bar create an atmosphere of unparalleled romance.

The main hall of The Endurance Restaurant is adorned with a collection of watercolors and genuine photographs taken by Frank Hurley, an Australian photographer on the expedition, which commemorate Shackleton’s epic journey in these lands.

We are open for service from Monday to Saturday, from 11:00 am to midnight, and on Sundays until 10:00 pm.
