If you want to retire partying at overcrowded noisy night clubs, 205 (pronounced as “two-oh-five”) is a breath of fresh air. Opened last October, the restaurant and bar is the newest hangout place in Bonifacio Global City for those who are more inclined towards intimate get-togethers with great food, friends, and drinks. Despite the fancy decorations and furniture, the price range of food and beverage at this joint is surprisingly easy on the wallet. Their drinks range from coffee to cocktails while the meals range from breakfast plates to pizzas.

Hidden away from the city lights and Pasig City traffic is Three Little Pigs, the newest speakeasy in Kapitolyo. Like its name suggests, the theme of this bar is the story of the Three Little Pigs. This is why most of the interior design is filled with quirky pig-related items. This bar is an ideal hangout spot for those who just want to chill and drink but want to avoid overcrowded areas. Since it’s well-hidden, you can only expect a handful of people on a typical night. One of the Three Little Pigs’ best characteristics is its mysterious charm that is reminiscent of the 1920s. With a wide array of good cocktails to choose from, you can absolutely get your alcohol fix.

5. ABS-CBN Studio Experience

Where: Trinoma
Operating hours:
Weekdays, 12:00 NN – 8:30 PM
Weekends, 10:00 AM – 8:30 PM
Note: These are the usual operation hours, but time may vary depending on the date.

Perhaps at one point in our lives, we fantasized about being a big celebrity. While there are some that get to live out this dream, some of us are stuck with the fantasizing. But don’t worry, ABS-CBN’s Studio Experience will let you feel like a TV star or a director through their interactive rooms. You can pretend to be a contestant of The Voice, a housemate at the Pinoy Big Brother house, or try your luck in Minute to Win It. For those with great hosting skills to boot, you can even host an interview à la Boy Abunda. Each installation is closely accurate to the real ones that they use for their TV shows.

One of the must-try experiences is the ASAP 4D, a 80-seater room where guests can experience a live concert with a complete cinematic experience. When you’re done with the activities, you can buy a souvenir or two at the gift shop. Entrance fee is PhP375 for first-timers, while it is PhP350 for returning guests.
