    Howzat Bar: Have a beer while watching sports

    by Ramonq Written Feb 13, 2012

    Havana Club: Open air cuban Beer Garden

    by Ramonq Updated May 18, 2011

    This is located within the Greenbelt complex right in the heart of the commercial district of Makati. It's a branch of the original havan Club in Malate, Manila, but this one is more upmarket with a great view of the pedestrian traffic therefore excellent for people watching. Daytime is quiet watering hole, but gets really lively past 8pm, where expats and locals congregate and listen to lively Cuban music.

    Dress Code: Smart Casual in the evening.

    P Burgos Street

    by Ramonq Updated May 13, 2011

    Makati has a redlight district along P. Burgos Avenue where P stands for Padre, named after a heroic priest who fought for the Philippine independence from the Spanish colonialists. KTV's abound with "guest relations officers" who massage the egos of mainly Korean and Japanese men by listening to their mournful renditions of their songs in their own language. There are also expat British or Irish bars, shisha bars, and as commonly spotted in these type of districts, restaurants and strip joints galore.

    It's no doubt very popular with the tourists and male expats with things happening late at night every night.

    Museum Cafe: The Art of Clubbing

    by KookieDough Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is what it is - a cafe in a museum. Of course, as you would expect, the establishment has that exquisite modern design that complements the museum itself.

    While Museum Cafe is already open before 7am daily, the best time to come over is still at night, after dinner. They got great drinks and appetizers - they really go well with lounging around with friends or a date. Try Rockstar, one of their original cocktails, and the seared tuna.

    Dancing could probably be well in your agenda, too, as they have good club music.

    Maybe you can even mingle and meet new friends. Tourists won't feel out of place here. The place has generally a cosmopolitan crowd.

    Beer Paradise: 100 beers...

    by monina_c Updated Jan 10, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is conducive to winding down after a night out. :)
    The bar is situated in a quiet street. It looked to me like a private residence converted into a more upscale hang out for the beer enthusiasts. The bartenders claimed they carry more than a hundred kinds of beers from all over the world.

    The Belgian Beer (Chimay) I drank cost about P240++/bottle plus tax (about US$5.30++).
    They carry a lot of fruit flavored beers which seem to be popular to the group that we found there. The sitting arrangement was cozy and conducive to easy conversation. The bar seat were comfortable enough. The ones we tried were mostly Belgian and German Beers (not surprising since the owner is Belgian) with unpronounceable names.

    The bartenders were nice and seem to be knowledgeable about their stock. Hehehehe! It doesn't hurt that they were young and good-looking!

    BTW, the bar is open daily:
    * Su: 5:00 pm - 2:00 am
    * M, T, W, Th, F, Sa: 5:00 pm - 4:00 am

    Dress Code: Smart Casual.
    I did not see anybody there wearing cargo shorts and flip-flops. :)

    Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf: More popular as a Night Spot than Coffee House

    by machomikemd Updated Jul 18, 2008

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf is A Chic place to Hang Out and is really popular in the Southern California Area but like Seattle's best Coffee then, it's popularity is limited and is mostly located in the southwestern US (California, Nevada, Arizona) but has growing popularity worldwide especially in asia.

    This branch in greenbelt 3 is their first branch here and started in 2003. The company was founded by Mona and Herbert Hyman. It is one of the oldest and largest privately held chain of specialty coffee and tea stores. The first store opened in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Brentwood in 1963. Coffee Bean stores differ from other coffee chains such as Starbucks with their broad selection of tea drinks. It also popularized The Original Ice Blended drinks and Chai Lattes.

    Here in the philippines, it is a popular place to hang out and have free wi-fi especially when the nearby Starbucks and Seattle's Best Coffee are Jampacked since prices here are slightly lower.

    Dress Code: Smart Casual.

    hardRock CAfe: hardRockin' at Glorietta

    by missmarianne Updated Mar 27, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I suppose it's the same hard rock that everybody goes to at night time in any part of the worLd. well, the comparison (amongst the bars here)..is.. I find it a little sophisticated in terms of music. They won't bore you to death. Their performers are really good. The food, the ambience, the facilities.. the service.. they're all the same with the other nicey bars around. uhm.. they're selling haRDRadrock garments, too. For reasonable prices.. designed by some famous INternational artists.. like shakira..?

    Dress Code: casual. just wear casual outfit. I think the staff will STOP you at the entrance if you're wearing something revealing that 'll make their bar appear like a hideout for prostitution...

    Along these restaurants is where you can eat and drink while listening to a band perform live. Mostly acoustic, these bands will perform your favorite tunes whether it be from the 80’s, 90’s or what not. Sometimes, they may even let you hit a few notes with them (as with my colleague’s case).

    As they peform in an open area, there is no entrance fee. They perform for the enjoyment of Cena and Masas's patrons.
