This nightspot was formally known as the L.A.Cafe.This is a large, dark ,smoke filled, crowed bar.It has 6 or more pool tables and has bands upstairs at night playing covers for a small entrance fee.The patrons are mostly foreign men and filipino women.The females out number the men about 15 to 1.One girl approached me..she told me she was shy....but the scorpion tattoo on her thigh gave me a differant impression!Philippine hero,boxing champ Manny Pacquiao visits this place.There is its annex on the next corner which is far more quiet.This is not a place for me,but if you are looking for a "wild night"this is where you can find it.
This Nightspot has four or five regular bands every night until 4am.The bands play mostly current covers and are very loud.All the bands i had seen were fronted by scantily clad female singers with huge voices.The crowd is 95% filipino and there is a 30ph entrance fee.There is a small open area at the front where you can buy seafoood meals at reasonable prices.Great place to watch some fun bands.
Ka Freddies has the best live music I have encontered in some time,

Excellent live music every night. NO cheap bebop bands here!
Good food as well
Freddie Agular performs live every Friday and Saturday
Dress Code: Come as you are
OK, the name of the complex does not indicate what happens inside: a suite of bar girls. Up to you to see what you would like to do.
Dress Code: Based on the motivation of the bar staff members and hostess for pushing you to enter, I guess there is no dress code.
May be the dress code is only related to the amount of pesos you're OK to pay
WARNING By walk, don't try to cross directly EDSA at road level, whatever your motivation is. You could visit the hospital instead of tasting local beers while chatting with cute bar girls.
Absolutely use the foot-bridges on EDSA
The Bistro at Party Avenue is a cozy place where you can have a meal, drinks and snacks while enjoying live entertainment Monday through Saturday.

G Point is close to Robinsons Place (Mall) in Ermita, Manila. While it offers a buffet lunch for P199 (smorgasboard), its main claim to fame is how from about 2200 nightly it offers live music. Generally the bands playing seem passable to excellent and more often than not feature one male and two female vocalists plus a couple of male band members. There is a mixed Caucasian/ Filipina crowd: some, but not all the girls are trying to hook the males for P1000 a night. If the latter is not your scene, just ignore it and enjoy the music. San Migs at I think P75 in November 2007 are not especially cheap but of course the band and the waitresses have to eat like you and me!
Dress Code: Neat casual.
I've been to the Hobbit House (named after the book by JRR Tolkien) a few times now, and love the fun and friendly atmosphere there. The bar is staffed almost entirely by 'little people', but there is certainly no sense that anyone is being exploited.
The live music is almost always excellent - last time I was there, there was a great Blues band playing, called (I think) 'Huka'.
I much prefer the Manila Hobbit House to it's Boracay counterpart though, which looks cheap and tacky - like something from disneyland!
I've not really eaten there aside from bar snacks, so I can't really comment on the food, but I'd definately recommend going there for a few beers if you are visiting the city.
Dress Code: Casual.
I am not a big fan of Hard rock cafe even though I have been to one too many here in the U.S. Having said that, I enjoyed my time at the Manila Hard Rock. I went there to attend a Birthday party and it so happened they had a charity concert that night by local rock bands. The food was good(costs pretty close to U.S. Prices!!!!) music loud and a fun place to spend the night away !!!!
This is a great nitespot. it has an outstanding menu for fine dining and a live band every night.
it is just a short drive from Manila in Malolos you can check it out at www.recovery-room.com
it is a theme restobar that has been featured a number of times on GMA 7
I went to a live band night club and it was nice but the problem is the beer they sell is warm and they give you a glass with ice, I don't know about you but for me I don't want my beer watered down any more than it already is.
Dress Code: Any type of clothing is fine
