Bars and Cafes in ManilaEdit This
Although many of the bars, cafes and restaurants are well-known chains, Greenbelt near Makati is a classy area to relax with a beer or coffee. A first rate shopping center and excellent cinema are other reasons for attending. Sit, stand or dance inside one of the many bars or preferably sit outside overlooking the pristine tropical orchid gardens while modern office blocks watch over you.
Whether this sounds like heaven or just plain mundane to you, the area outside Cafe Havana is a happening place to be.
For a very different experience try the Baywalk area, Roxas Boulevard along Manila Bay south of the USA Embassy. Makeshift bars put out tables and chairs in the evening. There is often entertainment and the beer is cheap. Not the classiest of venues but a pleasant atmosphere with a cool sea breeze.
Some decent clubs and bars can also be found just inland around Adriatico Street, but beware that the numerous foreigners push up the prices.
There are numerous other areas for bars and cafes. If you have the time have fun exploring.
