I like the crowd in Latino where people just wanted to sit and talk with their friends. A small stage is put in front to those who want to sing. This place reminds me of the Hobbit house in Boracay and in Malate because the staff especially the waitresses are height challenged. But I think it is not connected to either of the two famous bars. Their beer costs P60.00 and price for their food starts at P120.00.
I was at the Flying Gecko Restaurant and Cafe Pub last year with my wife and enjoyed every bit of it. Gecko offer great tastin' fingerfoods at around P50 each. Local light beer is only at P40 a bottle. If I'm not mistaken, I devoured around 7 different orders of the fingerfoods they call "Tapas" and drowned my soul with 8-9 bottles of beer. The place seemed intimidating at first. Foreigners are the usually patrons, the ambiance seems to be expensive-looking compared to the neighboring bars/restos. To my surprise, its just as affordable as going to one of the regular bars such as gerry's, pier one, and the likes here in Manila. The bar is very simple and yet elegant (at night) and has no doors. The whole area opens up to Session Road. The place is relatively small and cozy but has another area at the rear (near the restrooms) where bigger groups can be accommodated. I'd be going to Baguio next week with my college friends and I've been bragging about Gecko's to them for about a week now. I hope it would be as enjoyable as the last time as I was there.
Dress Code: dress up as you please.
A number of restaurants and bars along Session Road offer different ambiences depending on your mood. During special days and/or holidays, several bands play along Session with various restaurants offering food and refreshment outside their establishments for customers to experience the cool nights of Baguio.
The Convention Center in in the Middle of Camp John Hay and was built in 2001. Obviously it is used for conventions, gatherings, large parties, exihbits since The Main Hall can seat 1,500 guests and the balcony provides for additional 1,000 seats for a total of 2500 persons but during christmas, it is converted into a very BIG Dance Hall for Chill out or Rave Parties.
Entrance is 500 pesos w/ 2 free drinks.
Dress Code: No Slippers and Flip-flops, shorts, Tank Tops, Halter Tops allowed.
For a nightlife that's away from the maddening crowd, this cafe is the place to be. The girl you see in the picture singing is the daughter of the owner of the trans house where I stayed in. Enjoy relaxing moments while you listen to their music. Order your best choice of coffee or tea.
This place is good spot to watch the sunset settle over the mountains surrounding the city. If you go there around 7pm, you can watch the staff light up the big fireplace. They have good smoothies and dessert cakes like black forest, carrot cake and blueberry cheesecake. Their flavored teas are also good.
The staff are nice and accommodating.
Dress Code: No dress code.
If you have your own vehicle, it will be worth your while to drive over to the Starbucks at Camp John Hay for your post dinner coffee. The drive up is quite refreshing and the store is housed in a cabin in middle of pine trees.
If you don't have a ride, you can always take a taxi. The fare ranges from P50-60/way depending on which point of Session Road you got on. If you go there late at night, be prepared for a 10-minute walk down to the CJH gate to catch a taxi back downtown. It is no hardship as the walk is cool and pleasantly relaxing. You can see the well-lit greens and ornamentals of CJH.
Dress Code: No dress code.

Nevada is the most happening place in Baguio, if you wanna party around a bunch of cool people. Nevada is a collection of clubs, bars and restaurants, all in one central square. On weekends, there is a cover charge to enter, but this allows you access to all the different places.
There is a 'Fridays' to eat, there is place called 'Beach Club' which is a casual drink spot with billiards, there is the 'Bedroom', an upscale place with couches and mood lighting, for getting your drink on while listening to pulsing house/trance music. There is also a place called 'Club Sugar' which is a two-story club that plays hip-hop and rap music, and seems the most crowded. I really liked the jams at this place, and it played the latest tunes which were also popular in the states. I thought there might be a lag time between when songs came out in the U.S. and the Philippines, but there doesn't seem to be much of one.
I highly recommend this place for a fun night.
Dress Code: Casual Wear - whatever looks good on you!
friday's is now the number 1 bar in baguio city. it offers house music and has the hippiest crowd in town which come from students to young professionals both from the city to other areas in the philippines.
Dress Code: no sleepers or sandals allowed
for a quiet sunday evening (saturday night, ive been told they have a jazz band), to cap off the week, sit by the manor hotel's fake fireplace (with really genuine looking fire and log) and sip a nice bottle of merlot red wine - or for non-alcoholic drinkers like me, just iced tea.
it's a place where you can just talk and marvel at the architecture of the new hotel, decorated with stunning local artworks.
Dress Code: no slippers, no sandos, no shorts
If u want to have fun, this is one of the best places to go to.....live bands plays everyday but they have guest bands that plays on weekends....if you're on a tight budget go on weekdays cuz there's no entrance fee.... there's an entrance fee on weekends but it's cheap....you have a variety of drinks and food to choose from and it doesn't cost that much....the stuff are friendly, helpful and funny.....a lot of college students goes here but there are some middle age people too..... feel free to dance if you feel like dancing but be sure to get to the dance floor before anybody else cuz the dance floor gets crowded after a while......make sure that you or your friends won't create any trouble inside cuz you'll be kicked out without any warning.....Albertos is not a smoke free environment so don't go there if you're not comfortable with people smoking cigarettes around you......
Dress Code: Wear anything you want.....Sometimes they won't let you inside if a guy is wearing sandals but they're not strict on what you're wearing as long as you're not naked.....
The Red Box bar is a very small new bar in the St Francis Square in Baguio City. It is owned by a high school classmate so this should sound like I am plugging it. :) But the place is really fun as it is frequented by hip and young college students mostly.
Another good place to go to when you want to unwind is Ayuyang. It's a favorite destination of artists and art lovers.
If you like to listen to Reggae and Socially influenced music, this is the right spot for you.
The drinks are affordable and the space is relatively wider than most.
Dress Code: Wear anything comfy
18BC is a relatively small place. The chairs are those typical metal furniture. When the crowd starts coming, the place gets really tiny. Politeness and patience are required.
In spite of these, it's one of the popular hang-outs in Baguio City due to their live bands. Each night has a different musical theme. Mondays and Wednesdays could be Ska, Tuesdays and Thursdays could be R&B while Fridays and Saturdays is devoted to Rock though schedules may change from time to time.
Dress Code: There's no special dress requirement. Just wear anything comfortable.
