    A Toast for Titabell who is in Brugge!

    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 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.

    by monina_c Updated Jan 23, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Friends with Joey B. of Side-A at the Tavern

    In its latest incarnation, Tavern on the Square is still the place to listen to the music of the best bands in Philippines like Side-A, Retrospect, MYMP, Freestyle, Fat Session just to name a few. Its location makes it a good place to spend an idle night.

    UPDATE:

    Tavern is closed for renovation right now and will resume serving the public on February 2007.

    Dress Code: Casual

    citrus bar: a little disappointed..

    by ferrer910 Written Jan 6, 2007

    heard a great deal about citrus ...it was the former vbar and veniza bar...i went it side and paid the entrace free, can't remember how much but i heard it was overpriced. when i went inside, it was quite a bit smaller than what i expected. the crowd was young and the music was your typical pop/rap top 40....was informed it was the bar for the rich in the area but i guess i went on a bad night

    Dress Code: your usual bar attire, collard shirts, nice shoes for dudes. girls all looked pretty dressed up

    Absinth: If you want to just dance and let loose all night

    by KookieDough Written Dec 15, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Went here with my work colleagues after an office party and we had a great time! If you are in the mood to dance and have fun, this is the place to be. They've got good current dancing music here.

    Crowd is mostly of the younger set - the usual crowd you see in discos. Of course, expect the crowded room and loud music ambience.

    However, we just found the seating areas not that well-maintained. When we arrived, the attendant showed us to an area that still had spills of some beverage on the floor and on the table. We are not meticulous about cleanliness in bars and we know that you are to spend most of the time dancing, anyway, but considering all that, the place still needs a bit of improvement on this area.

    In general, though, I would still recommend this to those who would want to get down and boogie to the wee hours of the morning.
