Quattro Grill Bar and Restaurant: Affordable place with live band
I will never forget this place because I went here many times with my friends. It is our favorite place because prices here are far cheaper than others in Timog Avenue. If you want to sing with a band you can go inside or just sit there an listen to loud music. But for us we prefer the area outside the band so that we can just talk and hear each other clearly. I can't count how many times we went here and until now it is our favorite in this area. I even celebrated my birthday here.
They serve mucho mug of various kind of local beer that I though a pitcher before during my first visit. I like their "Tokwa'tBaboy (fried tofu and deep fried pork dip into soy sauce with onions and chili), the serving is quite big compared to other bars and for only P90.00. They serve variety of menus, drinks, cocktails, mocktails and they also offer Japanese food. Their staff respond to your orders quickly and requests but not all the time.
I recommend this place very cheap without sacrificing quality and service.Add to your Trip Planner
Lots of them: Sing the Karaoke in Timog and Tomas Morato areas
Just after midnight on March 18, 1996, 162 people died in the worst disco inferno in the Philippines and this was later called the OZONE DISCO FIRE.
The Ozone Disco was located along Timog Avenue corner Tomas Morato Avenue in Quezon City – a very popular entertainment area frequented by local celebrities due to its fine dining restaurant and bars.
Nowadays, you will still find lively entertainment in the form of karaoke bars and even lively gay bars such as Chicos, Adonis and Gigolo. So, if you are into the latter, this is the place to go.Related to:

70's Bistro. The alternative place to party.
70's Bistro has become somewhat of an institution over the years. Frequented by local 'intelligentsia' and the campus crowd of the University of the Philippines, it's not your run-of-the-mill live music bar that features those show bands doing covers of the American Top 40. This place seems to pride itself with featuring homegrown, honest-to-goodness, unadulterated Philippine talent, and has a loyal following.
Dress Code: Activist chic. But all other attire acceptable.Add to your Trip Planner

OK, so I'm way past the party-all-night age. These days my friends and I are content to go out for a couple of cheap beers and some intense conversation (still all-nighters, but minus the throbbing music and the monumental hang-overs the day after). And since I gave up beer as a New Year's resolution, I guess it's the company that really counts.
Quezon City has some great nightspots to hang out and drink your troubles away, without draining your wallet. The bars in LIBIS offer a great array of choices; so do the old favorites on TOMAS MORATO and KATIPUNAN Avenue. An all-time favorite is TRELLIS on Kalayaan Avenue, which is famous for its sisig (don't ask what it is, just order...trust me on this. Better yet, ask fellow VT member Pinoy a.k.a. Carlo what it's all about. Hehehe!).
Dress Code: Casual dress is accepted, but these areas are usually frequented by yuppies winding down for the day and still in their power suits.Add to your Trip Planner
