    Blue Gre: Durian Overload

    by monina_c Updated Jun 2, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is my favorite place to have after dinner coffee in Davao. My Davaoeno friends tell me that there are a lot of other cafes we can try but I always prefer the hot durian flavored coffee here. They also serve good durian cheesecake and banana cream pie.

    BTW, there is a Blue Gre outlet in SM City Davao.

    Dress Code: Casual. Denims and shirts are okay.

    Matina Town Square: It's not just Square

    by tsokoholic Updated Jul 23, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's a fun place. There are restaurants, bars & a coffee shop. There's a local band playing in the middle of the compound. For those who just want to "Hold hands while walking" there is a garden with benches. For families, there is also a playground for kids. This is where you can find the yummy Aling Foping's Halo-halo.

    Damosa Gateway: Unwind in Davao

    by julia_r Written Apr 2, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We came Friday night and the place is filled with yuppies. Other restos/bar has some oldies though. There's a trio playing and singing on the stage they have put up in the portion of the parking area. The photo is taken from our room in the hotel.

    Dress Code: Come as you are... sexy, carefree, hiphop, casual, relax and unwind.

    Jack's Ridge: A night of food, music, and view

    by aerialview Written Aug 14, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A friend told me that this is one of Davao's secrets. I couldn't blame the locals if they want to keep it for themselves. Generally a quiet place to hang-out and enjoy the cityscape at night. It also has bars with good music and restaurants with great food.

    Still nothing beats the atmosphere. While this place has its share of visitors, the park still allows you to lie down on the grass and have a covenant with the moon.

  • Torres and Rizal Sts.: Want a Street of Nightlife?

    by Igniz Written Apr 26, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nightlife in Davao is as lively as a casino. But these 2 streets deserves a great description of nightlife.

    Rizal Street- Well known for foreign and local restaurants which opens at night. The Road is usually closed for some live music. I recommend to dine at Iron Horse. Your 95 Pesos is enough to fill your hungry tummy!

    Torres Street- Long before, it was just nothing. But as the restaurants flocking to it's new location, no wonder if this street will be called "Street of Nightlife" because of it's fine dining restaurants that are open until midnight. Whenever you pass by this street, several restaurant names are brightly shown.

    Dress Code: Just Be Casual, no slippers pls.

    Marrakesh Bar: A touch of something exotic!

    by maple_air Updated Jan 23, 2007

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Colorful drapes...mat on the floor....cushions and pillows....you'd think you're inside a bar in Morroco...but nope, you're in Davao's Marrakesh Bar.

    Nothing could be more comfortable than taking your stiletto's off, sit on soft cushions, cross your legs and drink the night away.

    Once again, another small, cozy bar. None of that crazy crowd malachi, unless it's your very own set of friends!

    We had a very good night here. Relaxed, just talking, laughing, listening to the music.

    Dress Code: Anything comfortable. No dress code

    Hazel's Coffeehouse and Piano Bar: Small chill out bar

    by maple_air Written Jan 23, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This small coffeehouse during daytime turns into a piano bar in the evening. If you don't like noisy, rowdy crowds, then this is one place where you can go to. The music is not loud enough for you not to hear what your companion is saying. And if you like, you can have a go at singing your favorite songs.

    They have a wide range of both alcoholic and non- alcoholic drinks. Plus you can order some food, if you get hungry.

    I love their Jasmine Tea, and they have a variety of cakes and ice creams to choose from.

    Dress Code: No dress requirements at all. Wear anything comfortable.

    U-Turn Music Bar: Raw Live Bands

    by bike_packer Updated Sep 29, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Being a stranger to the place, we flagged down a taxi and told the driver to help us look for a music bar where local bands play. Most of the known places he showed us, bands played Top40 music not our type. after some more searching we passed by this row of bars and the inside of U-Turn Bar was visible from the street. Well, this is the place.

    The band played some punk and rock music. I recognized one from the 80's group Blondie. ("One way or another, I gonnna gonna get you one way or another.......") The crowd is generally college students and so with the band members, it seems. Raw music - the sound of wannabe bands but I'm sure they are having fun. Been there.

    3 bottles of RedHorse Beer (the favorite here, I noticed) would be enough to top your night.

    Dress Code: Jeans and casual tops.

    Jack's Ridge: Davao at Night

    by monina_c Updated Aug 7, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This night is located on a high point overlooking the city of Davao. It features :
    1. Restaurant Bar & Grill (they serve good seafood sizzler and pork barbecue)
    2. Carlo's Coffee Station
    3. Swimming Pool (the kids seem to enjoy the pool)
    4. Function Halls (The waiter told me you can have free use of the function room over the bar if your bill is more than P6,000 (US$113++)
    5. Amphitheater (They've concreted the edges of the concentric circles that comprise the ampi, so it's turned artificial and tacky!)
    6. Piano Bar
    7. Souvenir Shop
    8. Cottages

    There is also a group of musicians who serenade while you are eating. They seem to expect some tip after they sing for you.

    Dress Code: Casual. Even shorts and shirts, sandals are okay

    Bar: Matina Town Square:Nighttime Place

    by boilingmind Written Sep 17, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I can't give you an exact photo of what it's really like but for the meantime i'd like to show you one of my most memorable nighttime places i've visited so far.

    It has a lot of foodshops,cafés, disco bars, Live music bars,etc. Or you may play a life-size chessboard--like the ones i've seen in any european cities. Or do people-watching, having new acquaintances and a lot more.

    MTS, as what we call it, is the best place to party at the heart of urban DAVAO CITY.

    Dress Code: Wear anything you want:do your own style as long as it's hot good! Hahaha...

    The Venue: Nightlife Alive

    by boilingmind Written Sep 17, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located beside Davao Central Bank, The Venue features a very spacious entertainment place, and is one of Davao's most promising party places, changing the ways Dabawenyos party and have fun! People, especially teens and some not-yet-grown ups, usually enjoy live concerts, band performances and others. Outside the place is a compound of cafés, bars, restaurants and other places to hang out.

    Also infront is the Cogot's Seafood Restaurant, a fave place to spend time with friends and dine in...

    Dress Code: Any wraps will do! Do your own fashion... Set no limits on yourself!

    Hahahahaha....
