    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.

    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.

    Barcino's: Spanish Tapas and Drinking Spot

    by machomikemd Written Nov 5, 2013

    Barcino's is not the oldest Spanish Restaurant cum wine bar in the Philippines, but it surely popularized Spanish Tapas to filipinos and also became part of the growing wine appreciation of filipinos, who are more addicted into beers and liqours. Tapas before is only known as a filipino fried beef dish and now, filipinos know that spanish tapas are small servings of hearty meals, much like the amouse bouche or appetizer platters. Barcino's Tapas and wine bar is now more popular as a drinking joint than as an eating joint, hence my separate nighlife tips on it. they have 3 branches in Makati City, this branch at Greenbelt 2, at Greenbelt 5 and at Powerplant Mall.

    besides the traditional spanish ans other wines from around the world, which they offer by the glass or by the bottle, ranging from 300 to 500 pesos a glass to the Estrella Galicia Spanish Beers that cost 120 to 140 pesos (depending on the type, whether lager or dark ale or light) and their assorted cocktail drinks and their really strong Sangria Drinks (280 pesos a large glass and 800 pesos for a pitcher) and the favorite bar chow cum tapas of gambas (450 pesos), croquetas (350 pesos), calamares (380 pesos) and more, this is among the more famous nitespots in greenbelt 2 drinking area.

    opens: 10:00 am to 12:00 am sundays
    10:00 am to 2:00 am regular days

    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
