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.
July 2020 Update: Subic is under modified general community quarantine, and establishments like bars can operate at 50 percent capacity. Still, please be advised that some bars in Subic might still be temporarily closed. Please coordinate with the management before going.
