Best Hotel Bars in Manila

Best Hotel Bars in Manila

Most travelers use Manila as a gateway to the idyllic islands of the Philippines, but the city offers more than its gritty facade may lend. Beyond the sea of endless Jeepneys and Jollibees lies a world where cocktails reign king. In between jaunts to Cebu and Borcay, check out these luxurious hotel bars in Manila’s financial heart, Makati.

Fairmont Makati

Just steps from Manila’s premier Greenbelt Mall, Fairmont Makati is a prime spot for a post-shopping drink. Head through the shimmering hotel lobby to Long Bar, a lively and welcoming watering hole. After selecting a libation from the bar’s creative cocktail menu, snack on complementary roasted peanuts. Go ahead and make a mess – it’s encouraged to throw leftover peanut shells on the floor.

Makati Shangri-La

Experience Manila in style at Makati Shangri-La’s newly opened Sage Tapas Bar. Sidle up to the black granite bar and order a tropical tiki beverages like the Waikiki Punch. Most nights feature live music to accompany delicious drinks and small plates. Enjoy a taste of the Philippines with the Kil Awin, a coconut marinated local lapu-lapu fish with ginger, chili, and lime.

The Peninsula

Pass through the immense grandeur of The Peninsula and duck into The Bar, the hotel’s intimate cigar bar inspired by Old Havana. This hideaway features a cocktail menu full of perfectly executed classics. The staff provides extra indulgences like potato chips and popcorn for guests in the smoky lounge. Don’t forget to pair your drinks with a premium cuban cigar.
