The name 20/20 Bar of the Bellevue Hotel is very appropriate, as the bar is located at the 20th floor of the said hotel.
None of the bars in the Alabang area can beat their happy hour promo at P270++ from 5 to 8:30 p.m., drink all you can (San Miguel beer and other mixed drinks).
Imagine having a perfect sunset view of the area from the 20th floor of a classy hotel with a cold brew in your hand without having to sweat it out from the Manila heat.
The parking is free and their staff is one of the best looking set in Metro Manila!
Many Filipinos now consider drinking coffee as an alternative to drinking beer or wine. They enjoy drinking coffee and/or iced blends to perk up those sleepy eyes. Yuppies (young professionals) usually hang out at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf in Alabang Town Center where they can exchange stories, smoke and have coffee al fresco or work on their laptop (free wifi) inside the non-smoking airconditioned area.

"Aplaya" means seaside in local dialect. Thus, the theme is very tropical, with surfboards, white sand, shells and the like adorning the whole place. It is located at the new al fresco food wing of Filinivest Mall called Greens and Grills right outside the National bookstore. The food is typically "pinoy" but on the Visayan side, as the owner is Ilonggo. Food price ranges from P100 to about P300 for the crispy pata, good old San Miguel Beer is at P30 with a reverse happy hour from midnight to 5 a.m., good music, from OPM, Bossa Nova, Jazz, Chillout House, R&B and good old 80's music, nothing loud from Sunday to Thursday, with in-house DJs on Fridays and Saturdays.
A nice place to chillout because the market is not the rowdy type, people just mind their own business. Good personal service from the staff.
Mind you, the place gets full at around 6-7p.m., so get there early!
Dress Code: Typical Alabang dress code, shorts and flip-flops!
Watching movies is one way of bonding with the family. We enjoy watching movies while having popcorn or hotdogs ;-)
We prefer to go to the cinema at ATC because the moviehouses there are not so big; there is tight security; cleaners get all the trash after each screening so the place looks & smells clean; aircon is efficient.
I don't have much pictures because cameras are not allowed in the area.
Dress Code: No strict dress code

Barcino's is not the oldest Spanish Restaurant cum wine bar in the Philippines, but it surely popularized Spanish Tapas to filipinos and also became part of the growing wine appreciation of filipinos, who are more addicted into beers and liqours. Tapas before is only known as a filipino fried beef dish and now, filipinos know that spanish tapas are small servings of hearty meals, much like the amouse bouche or appetizer platters. Barcino's Tapas and wine bar is now more popular as a drinking joint than as an eating joint, hence my separate nighlife tips on it. they have 3 branches in Makati City, this branch at Greenbelt 2, at Greenbelt 5 and at Powerplant Mall.
besides the traditional spanish ans other wines from around the world, which they offer by the glass or by the bottle, ranging from 300 to 500 pesos a glass to the Estrella Galicia Spanish Beers that cost 120 to 140 pesos (depending on the type, whether lager or dark ale or light) and their assorted cocktail drinks and their really strong Sangria Drinks (280 pesos a large glass and 800 pesos for a pitcher) and the favorite bar chow cum tapas of gambas (450 pesos), croquetas (350 pesos), calamares (380 pesos) and more, this is among the more famous nitespots in greenbelt 2 drinking area.
