Can a place where you can mingle with friends and strangers, overlooking the Makati skyline at night, help you heal your broken heart? It will likely remind you how socializing feels as a free, single, and carefree soul, complete with a romantic backdrop.
Z Hostel is open 24 hours, but the Z Hostel Roofdeck opens at 6:00 PM and closes at 2:00 AM. If you and your friends are not keen on clubbing or partying and would instead sip wine or cocktails and talk to each other, this place is for you. You’ll find a picture-perfect spot with a Makati Skyline for a background, and it comes with a table to hold your drinks and food. The place becomes crowded but not rowdy at nighttime, as many security guards and crowd control are outside.
You’ll pay PhP350, including entrance fees and food and drinks. The prices on their menu are affordable, and the food is palatable enough. Nonetheless, their primary offerings, their beer choices from international and local brands, are worthy of being their main attractions. And definitely, the openness of the place and the breathtaking views of the city draw its guests to keep coming back.
The end of a relationship does not signal the end of your life. As Lau Tzu once said, “New beginnings are often disguised as painful endings,” so for people still mending and healing their broken hearts, take it slow. Choose to continue living, one step at a time–live for your family, friends, and those who love you. Continue to view life with optimism and with a grateful heart.
After being broken, it’s time to widen your horizon. There are many places to recover and meet someone new under the big sky, but take it slow lest you trip and fall again for the wrong one!
