Subic beach nightlife

Out of ideas to do after the sun sets?

Some decades ago, Subic rose to fame for its girly bars and hostess bars, which became popular when the US Naval Base there was still operational. The business boomed, and as such, Subic’s local nightlife scene became infamous and tainted with this image. Decades later, Subic has departed from this perception, and has since then been famous for its family-friendly dinner spots and wholesome yet still exciting nooks for night outs. Now, you can go to Subic and do all sorts of things at night with friends, family, or your special someone, and here are just a few of them.

1. Dine out with family and friends.

Having a sumptuous dinner with friends and family is always on top of anyone’s list for a perfect night out, and Subic has a great selection of restaurants to deliver just that. When it comes to food, size does matter in Subic, all to the delight of those with a huge appetite.

Popular for its big pizza and burger, Xtremely Xpresso’s food is always good for sharing within large groups. If you’re craving for a hearty meal paired with your favorite sides, you can choose between Texas Joe’s House of Ribs or Meat Plus Café. Have your fill with a plate of large servings of ribs or steaks.

Just outside Subic Freeport Zone, in Barrio Barretto, sits The Coffee Shop, which is famous for its jumbo tacos. It comes in a crispy taco shell or a soft burrito wrap, served with a hefty fill of ground beef and vegetables.

2. Walk by the beach.

Subic has a number of public and private beach resorts within and just outside Subic Freeport Zone. Some of the famous ones are Camayan Beach Resort, White Rock Beach Hotel and Waterpark, Halfmoon Bay Beach, and Driftwood Beach.

The Subic local nightlife wouldn’t be complete without bar-hopping from one of its energetic watering holes to another. There are quite a few wholesome entertainment spots around Subic, in the Waterfront Road near the naval docks as well as in Magsaysay Avenue in downtown Olongapo City.

One of them is Pier One Bar and Grill where there is a nightly live band that plays various music genres. While enjoying the bar’s in-house entertainment, you can munch on your favorite snacks, finger food, or even have a full meal for dinner. Another is Liberty Sports Bar and Grill, which showcases a sports-themed interior adorned with all the photos of local and international sports moments. This is a good place to eat Western food like burgers, pizza, and sandwiches; drink imported beers and other alcoholic beverages; and have fun on a round of billiards and darts. Another exciting drinking place is 1925 GastroPub which offers a wide variety of local and international drinks and food but prepared and served the Filipino way. Meanwhile in Magsaysay Avenue, dance the night away and enjoy a few drinks at Club V, Nocturnal, or at Padi’s Point.
