Metro Manila · Megacitizen Bars & Pubs
No matter if you look for a trusted Hard Rock Café, an authentic English Pub or a noble French Cuisine, the Megacity has it all.
Thanks to all the Megacitizens living and working in Manila, there is no lack of international touch concerning dining and drinking places. Actually, many of those places are owned by Megacitizens who either have it as their main business, retirement plan or just for fun. If you find a place you really like and frequent often, don't hesitate to ask for the owner and chat with him about the background of his establishment. Most of them are very happen to welcome another Megacitizen soul and might even treat your for a local speciality!
