    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.

    4 more images

    The Draft Gastropub is now like mushrooms sprouting all over, as it now has more branches as before as filipinos are now getting used to drink more varieties of International Beers (mostly European brands and some asian beer brands too) and learning to drink beer without ice cubes as not to dilute the flavor. They now have 2 branches in makati city alone and more around the metro.

    Draft Gastropub is a European Style Pub with a lively crowd and lots of european expatriates among the patrons hence the place is really authentic plus they have an international selection of beers like stella artois, chimay, Tuborg, Beck's, hoogarden, tiger beer, Heineken, Sam Adams and more. Both the bottled and draft versions of beers but the price is NOT that expensive for Philippine Standards, comparable to the beer price in 5 star hotels. Average price of local beers like san miguel lite and pale pilsen at 100 pesos an order and for 1 glass of stella artois draft or beck's beer is 250 pesos an order. Other beers like tuborg at 140 pesos a bottle, Chimay at 220 pesos a bottle. This is esily one of the more popular nite spots in the greenbelt 2 area as it it packed with people even on weekdays. they also have vodka cocktail specials at buy one take one at 200 pesos and assorted cocktails like zombie or mai tai or tequila sunrise at 180 to 220 pesos an order.

    Bar chows are aplenty too and are mostly european stuff like assorted sausages and saurkraut at 400 pesos an order or German Pig Knuckles at 650 pesos an order.

    Barcino's: Spanish Tapas and Drinking Spot

    by machomikemd Written Nov 5, 2013
    4 more images

    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

    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
