The Hayahay is a very popular place to hang out on the Boulevard, with live reggae, ska and rock bands several nights a week. It's large rambling place constructed with lots of wood and bamboo with an upstairs viewdeck, and is popular with a varied crowd, from students to expats and tourists. As well as the friendly ambiance and music, people are drawn to the Hayahay for the food, especially their delicious seafood
Dress Code: Seafood is their specialty, and there is an extensive menu to choose from. I love their baked oysters and the special Camiguin Express; mixed seafood soup with coconut milk. There is also a pizzeria on site.
For a relaxing end to a hectic day, take a stroll along Rizal Blvd. at dusk. The boulevard is well lighted by lampposts and colorful lights wrapped around coconut trees. There are benches facing Tanon Strait where you could sit and watch boats/ships docking at or leaving the port.
Dress Code: No dress code to be observed, just come as you are.
There are plenty of nightspots in Dumaguete and all of these are long the boulevard. The one we saw (while having dinner there) is Hayahay that had a live band. I was also told that El Camino is good.
Dress Code: No dress code
the name itself is self-explanatory....
a lot of yuppies and young men,ladies and students (on weekends) go to this hangout....you can play billiards, drink, they do have an icebox (enclosed dancefloor which i don't like because when you come out from the icebox you'll be smelling like a cigar for a week.......)
gimmick is proud of their special sisig....you gotta try it....
Dress Code: they don't allow slippers and sandos for men...
it's like boracay in a restaurant without the sand. the name "Payag" means shack in english but this Payag is one great place to unwind and enjoy food, drinks and great music. they have a live band playing and you can even sing if your'e that confident enough to belt out a mellow song, the band will be more than willing to back you up with guitar and a beatbox...
they have several nooks where you just sit on a mat laid out on the ground and with big throw pillows to sit on or to sleep on...and if you do lid down, u'd see the stars....how romantic....they've got candles spread around as well....
Dress Code: anything will do...from formal to casual to beach wear...the heck it is a 'beach' theme kind of thing. but casual will do just fine...
“The Lounge Bar and Restaurant” is strategically located along Silliman Avenue. We have designed the front porch of the building to exude a French country ambience which will serve as a coffee shop by day. The interiors of the building are a different story with a modern minimalist theme splashed in all white.
Dress Code: come as you are
This is a place where mostly the 20 something crowd hangout. The setting is like the beaches of Boracay at night time where mats and pillows are laid out in the sand. The tables and chair are all made up of bamboo. The food here is good. You should try their sisig and spicy gambas.
Dress Code: come as you are
On Rizal Boulevard you can find a few bars and restaurants. Why not has a bar and behind that is a Karaoke Bar, this is a kind of national sport. First they ask you what to sing, then what to drink.
Dress Code: No short pants
