Before Makati became the central business district of Megacity Manila, it was the city of Manila (which is one of the cities within Metro Manila) that served as the business hub. In the heart of Manila lies Malate, a cozy and somewhat graciously aged part of the city. Malate has everything that you need for an enjoyable night out with the guys or gals.
Intramuros, the Hyatt Casino and the American Embassy – these are only some of the places you can find in the Roxas Boulvard HotSpot. The HotSpot is located in Manila at the bay area. For those Megacitizens who just arrived or haven't had the time yet: the HotSpot is all about culture and tourist destinations.
Quaint and romantic, the rather secluded Casa Armas offers fans of Spanish cuisine a respite from the business of Malate. The tapas bar was nominated in 2010 for the Manila’s Best Kept Restaurant Secrets Awards.
