Jools cabaret: A reputation to kill
P.Burgos street has a very bad reputation for its girly bars, but this one can be a nice retreat in what is somehow a badly reputed street.
The bar offers a different cabaret show every hour and this is not some kind of obscur amateur and sexy dancing, but a real cabaret style dancing performed by trained professionnals dressed in always decent clothes (no topless), some dresses are very spectacular with many feathers.
The room is non smoking making the 'breathing' environment more plaisant, though there is also a cosy separate smoking bar/room on the back from where one can still follow the show.
Entry is free and drinks are in the order of 150 pesos. Of couse. like everywhere else in the street, when you enter you will be gently accompanied by an army of ladies who may ask you to offer them a drink. This is the trap with 350 pesos per lady drink your bill can raise very fast. BUT you will not be harrassed anymore if you clearly state that you are not interrested to have company and that you won't offer ladies drink.

Gerry's Grill: Missing San Miguel
having lived in singapore for almost two years now, i've discovered that there really is a big difference between singapore and the philippines. in manila, there's a lot of things going on. there are even a bunch of places to go to, plus an equally number of night hang outs to explore every friday night.
one of the places is gerry's grill in ortigas, pasig, where three bottles of san miguel light costs a hundred pesos or almost SGD1! where in singapore can you have this deal? that's why my friends and i are missing manila so bad.

Malate area: The city that never sleeps
The Malate area is one of the places to go, especially if you're a tourist. I've never seen soo many people walking around this late (or early), even on weekdays. You can pretty much hop from one bar to another. Some clubs has live music playing, which is pretty cool. Some has hangout restaurant/bar, which you can buy cheap drinks and tasty Filipino meal.
Dress Code: There are no dress code, but it's nice if you wear something descent.Related to:

Manila Nightspots: Gimik na!
In the upmarket business district of Makati, Glorietta, Greenbelt, The Fort and Rockwell Centre are the fashionable places for entertainment, dining and shopping. Jupiter Street has a considerable number of good quality restaurants and bars, and the area along Makati Avenue, Kalayaan and P Burgos streets are dotted with nightclubs. I'm frequent the Makati clubs..try out Gbelt, Flute, Capones, Il Ponticello, Wasabe and Wherelse?
A twenty minute drive away, El Pueblo and the Strip in Ortigas Centre, Mandaluyong are lively places at night, with coffee shops and bars filled to the brim on weekend nights.
In Quezon City, the tourist hub is centred around Tomas Morato Avenue. The street is literally lined with familiar international franchises as well as stylish local bars and restaurants which serve cuisine almost as varied as that in Malate. Mama Rosa, located right beside the street's roundabout serves local dishes in a refreshingly non-traditional atmosphere. Nearby West and Timog Avenues are also known for their restaurants and bars.
Try also Eastwood City in Libis, Quezon City. The commercial complex has more than its fair share of up-and-coming restaurants, but it's best to be picky as some can disappoint. The bars and clubs in the Libis area are mostly frequented by the young, sophisticated college set.Related to:
