The Nightlife In Manila
Party ala Pinoy
You have to say goodbye to your comfortable king-size bed, to your loyal dog or cat, to your friends and family, to regular home-cooked meals served just the way you like it.
In fact, you might even think that your night life will have to be shelved for the duration of your trip abroad.
Well, if you’re planning to go to the Philippines, better pack your best party clothes, shoes and makeup. Filipinos love a fun occasion. And with the proliferation of 24/7 jobs in the commercial districts, you’ll always find a crowd to party with in the hottest bars and clubs in Manila.
Night Spots In Manila
The Philippines has a number of legitimate (and yes, some not-so-legitimate) night time party destinations that you can stop at.
If you’re a big fan of Western pop, rock and R&B music, you’ll feel right at home in the bars because we play everything from Lady Gaga to Neyo to Katy Perry, with a few ‘90s music and K-Pop hits thrown in for good measure. In between the more popular tracks, you’ll be treated to a sizzling mix of techno, electronic and house music that will allow you to catch your breath before the next dance.
So what are the best places you can head to for a big dose of clean fun? Check out these rocking bars and clubs for a night full of groove:
Republiq, Resorts World Manila:
The latest and most hyped up addition to the Manila party scene is Republiq. Everyone from showbiz celebrities to politicians to supermodels to regular party people have all been to Republiq over the last few years.
Get yourself in through the guest list if you can—the lines can get really long during on the weekends. This place is also a little farther than the other places on the list because you have to go all the way back to the airport area to reach Resorts World.
Eastwood City, Quezon City:
Manor, Blue Onion and Bed are just some of the more favored hotspots that you can choose from. Alcoholic drinks, great sizzling dishes (commonly called pulutan or pica-pica in the vernacular)and great music are all that you need to while the night away.
Metrowalk, Pasig City:
Itching for an all-out karaoke night? Metrowalk and its nearby areas offer at least four different karaoke bars where you can sing to your heart’s desire—and your companions’ chagrin. For as low as P100 per hour per person, you can rent a room and let the music take over.
The karaoke bars also carry a variety of sumptuous dishes if you want to stay on for the rest of the night. Plus, there are also great live-band shows that you visit to cap off your night.
The Fort Strip/Bonifacio High Street/Serendra/Burgos Circle, Taguig City:
You’ll love the wide, mostly deserted streets and the lovely restaurants and bars that are just walking distance from each other.
Want to book a cozy dinner that will last until midnight or so? Or do you want to sample different alcoholic drinks all night long? These places offer premium food plus entertainment. Just pick the one that suits you best.
Greenbelt, Makati City:
With all five Greenbelt wings already open to the public, you can choose a different restaurant to serve your appetizer, entree, dessert and drink if you want to do so.
Metrowalk also offers a variety of restaurants in different cuisines (Korean, Italian, Filipino and Japanese, to name a few) in case you get hungry.
Enjoy the nightlife on your holiday to the Philippines and party a la Pinoy!
