    Larry's Cafe and Bar: Cool Hangout, Really Hot Treats

    by KookieDough Updated Dec 31, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Larry's is part of the LJC Group of Restaurants (as in Cafe Adriatico and Cafe Havana), another popular and well-respected dining chain in the Philippines because of its outlets' marvelous food, coffee and ambience.

    Have some wine or liquor till the wee hours of the morning. Or you can sample their scrumptuous desserts and pair them with their delicious coffee concoctions.

    I love their Irish Coffee which is laced with Jameson Irish Whiskey. They also make great souffles here; try the Grand Marnier or the Chocolate Eh! variety.

    This is a great place to hangout after dinner when you are on a romantic date or having fun with friends. The elegance of the place is not cold and intimidating, but rather cozy enough for you to stay there for hours, chatting with your companion while savoring their lovely offerings.

    Hyatt Hotel and Casino Manila: Tonight may be your lucky night

    by KookieDough Updated Aug 17, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    While the Casino is open 24 hours, the liveliest time is still at night, particularly starting around 11pm. It has 2 spacious levels housing a whole array of slot machines and card tables, roulettes and other games.

    Compared to other casinos in Manila, Hyatt's is clean and not suffocating. Probably it is also because it is a new establishment, but it looks like it is maintained well. Restrooms are also kept sparklingly tidy.

    Manila: Drink All You Can

    by drunkenmaster4 Updated Apr 26, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This tip is of no particular place. I created this out of frustration on searching the web for a list of "drinking utopia" here in Manila. So now I decided to create one. I will post here as I gather new information but so far I have 3

    1. Fiesta San Miguel - Dusit Hotel Makati - It has its own mini brewery of San Miguel Beer. You can never get a taste of this local popular beer in any other place the same way they have it here. Happy hour is from 5:30 to 8:00 PM. During Fridays, bands starts early so you have live entertainment even if its Happy Hour (most of the time they do not have live bands during Happy Hour). Complimentary nuts is served with your first order. I assure you, you will never know what hits you by the time its 8 in the evening. Cost is 350 Php.

    2. Conways Bar - Shangri-La Makati - Drink all you can from 5:30 to 9:00 PM. They serve local bottled beers plus red and white wine and Bacardi products - all you can drink. Cost is also 350 Php. Bands starts after the Happy Hour. Complimentray nuts is also served.

    3. Richmond Hotel in Ortigas Center Mandaluyong. What Richmond has to offer is a drink all you can plus eat all you can pica-pica at the same price of 350 Php. Happy hour is from 5:00 to 8:00 PM.

    Three on the list so far. I will continue my quest to widen my horizons...

    Dress Code: In most "drink all you can" places- dress code is not important because if you take more than your fill, then chances are- there is no dress to talk about int he first place.

    Cowboy Grille: Live Music

    by DJ_Rolo Written Feb 27, 2006

    Cowboy Grille is located near Malate, i think its in the city next to it. This is more of a local spot, i didnt see too many tourists here. I believe this is a restaurant most of the time but at night it turns into a live band spot. When i was here i think they played more rock than anything else. But when danceable music did come on people danced in front of the stage. there wasnt much room there, so it got packed very quickly. Its a pretty chill spot, drinks and food were pretty cheap..

    Nirvana: A Local club

    by DJ_Rolo Written Feb 27, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nirvana is a club, i believe in Pasig?? well im not too sure where its at, but its in between Makati and Malate. This place is huge. Its more like a party inside a big hall. Its set up with a bunch of tables, once you pay the $200Php i think?? the hostess will seat you. Up front there is a big dance floor and a stage. There is a DJ and Live Bands. They play hip hop, R&B, and house, they even throw in a slow jam once in awhile. This is more of a local spot.If you feel like just getting on the dance floor, this is a good place to go....

    Dress Code: Not too sure about the dress code, but they dont let you take cameras in. The make you leave it up front, in the office and they give you a ticket. This is easy to get around, just put it in your crotch when the security guys searches you, thank goodness he doesnt serch you there!!

    Mega Strip: Dining and Mini-Concert Scenes

    by moonlighting Written Mar 9, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Boys and Men, it's not what you think,, no clothes stripping happening here. Strip here means it is that stretch of narrow area outside the SM Megamall's two builldings lined up with restaurants. There is also a stage nearby where mini-concerts/live music are staged. Good place to meet with friends and meet new ones too. A nice place to relax after doing all that haggling and fitting and shopping. Wide choice of restaurants: Filipino, Japanese, Thai, Chinese, Singaporean, American, European.

    Dress Code: The one you're wearing while shopping is acceptable.

  • Places which ARE NOT IN YOUR...

    by littlewing Written Aug 24, 2002

    Places which ARE NOT IN YOUR GUIDEBOOK: Malate at night - people familiar with Tolkien might want to checkout THE HOBBIT HOUSE where little people serve your drinks. one of the places that plays blues, folk, accoustics. Located at Mabini St. (manila's old red light district. Politix is another bar around that area that stages drag shows. hilarious. NAKPIL ST. not-to-miss street in Malate area. On this stretch you find all sorts of interesting dining and bars. from techno clubs to jazzbars. there's something for everyone. about 2 blocks away is the remedios circle where you can find a cigar lounge on top of Havanna, across one of the best korean restaurant in Manila.

    I cannot remember the name of the hotel.
    There was one in Metro Manila near a parking where you can access a room where local bands sing.
    You can ask them to sing what you want and usually they're able to do it!
