they have two branches in Manila..Mabini st. and the other one is in Malate st.
the one in Malate is merely for watching live bands coz the space is toooooo small for dancing. their Mabini branch is big enough (two-storey) to accomodate hundreds of customers. their bands play hippyyippy tunes..some senti and alternative if requested. the dance floor is..uhm I still find it small though..coz whenever we go there (weekends) we get the space almost kissing the lady in cashier's area lol! it's usually overcrowded on weekends. .yeah.. what's to wonder anyway..?

Onboard the M/V Spirit of Manila, you will have an unforgetable Manila Bay Cruise. After a full course gourmet meal (appetizer,soup,main course,dessert), live entertainment will immediately follow, opening the floor for al fresco dancing. If you don't feel like dancing, you can just stay on the deck, feel the sea breeze and view the magnificent lights of the cityscape and its reflection on Manila Bay. If you're at the bay between 7:00-7:30pm, you'll be in for a different experience, being in the midst of the fireworks display of nearby SM Mall of Asia. All these, for only P495/pax.
Don't feel like having dinner while on cruise? You may still avail of the Manila Bay Cruise without taking dinner for only P250/pax.

This place is downstairs from the Bellagio hotel and Mirrors club. It's chock-full of cuties moving their booties til 7 in the morning. The girls are friendly, the drinks are cold and a normal price (150 for a beer, 300 for a lady drink) and the boucner's a cool guy.
Dress Code: Cum as you are!
Ever since the Regional Exhibits at the Wow Philippines/DOT Clamshell was resumed, there are electronic floats parade held at 5:30pm and fireworks displayed very night at 7:30 pm. The floats depict local scenes. My pictures were taken in the afternoon while the floats were parked, but they look more fantastic at night when lit up.
Dress Code: Come as you are; no dress code since you'll watch from the streets
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.
Although the present local government removed the business establishments in Baywalk, many people still go there for a stroll with loved ones, sit on the grass for an evening picnic, take some souvenir shots, and relax by simply sitting on the breakwater to watch the awesome view of Manila sunset. If you're lucky, you'll even see the fireworks display of nearby SM Mall of ASIA in Pasay City. They hold it every Friday evening at 7:30pm and on special holidays, same time.
Dress Code: Come as you are; no dress code
LA Café’s not quite a club and not quite a girlie bar. In some ways, it’s the best of both. I’ve been there twice. First time, just to kill time for a half hour downstairs in the bar on a Thursday afternoon. There were probably about 75 girls in there, just hanging out. They’re a little older – late 20s to maybe 40. One of them introduced herself and we had a “no bola-bola” (no bs) talk. Basically, all the girls are free agents. There are no barfines, no cover and you don’t even have to buy the girl a drink.
So, the next time I went in there, I went upstairs to where you do have to pay a cover for a
pretty good band. I listened to them for a while, watching this large-breasted (for a Filipina) 35
yo shaking her thing on the dance floor. She told me her hobby was to make long, slow love. Sounds good, right?
And it was going good until I saw this little stunner on my way to the CR. I smiled, she smiled. I asked her how she was. She said fine and said what was I up to. I said “to make wild love to you all night”. She smiled. I was in love. 20 minutes later we were in a cab heading to my place. Gotta love LA Café.

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.
Dress Code: be fabulous! no slippers, of course.

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.
