Heirs to Embassy: Where to Party Any Day of the Week

Nights out don’t have to be same-old. SPOT.ph steers you to the coolest night-crawling haunts in the city.

Time was when a night out meant acute alcoholism, temple-thumping bass, and next-day memory loss. True, there’s still a place for drunken debauchery, but these days, the night out has evolved into a more relaxed strain, though done more frequently throughout the week. Consider it as the chill cap to the grueling workday: slow and steady wins the race.

Monday: Distillery, Jupiter
What for? Acoustic Jamming
AKA: Open mic night for karaoke enthusiasts set in a liquor-heavy area (but what else?)
Where? 20 Jupiter Street, Bel-Air Village, Makati City
What time? 7 p.m. onwards - The place gets SRO pretty quickly, as does its Fort counterpart . Be prepared to be thisclose to the person in the table next to you, and for some body-grazing action when you navigate the narrow walk towards the bathroom.
What to order? The international beers, and the liquor by the bottle. Take note that one cocktail could cost P250, but a whole bottle is about P700. Choose wisely.
How much? Upwards of P200, depending on how drunk you want to get.

Tuesday: Attica
What for? By Request Tuesdays
AKA: Music trivia nights, where you earn points that enable you to request songs from the DJ, by completing music geek challenges like complete-the-lyrics, or guess-a-song-played-backwards. It’s basically a cross between game night and your long gone high school fair.
Where? G/F A.Venue Hall, Makati Avenue, Makati
What time? 10 p.m.
What to order? The cheap liquor
How much? Shots at around P120, beer at P80, cocktails a bit under P200


capricossa_quiznight

Wednesday: Capricciosa
What for? Quiz Night
AKA: A chance to show off your trivial intellect over pizza, pasta and brewsky, for the purpose of winning more pizza, pasta, and brewsky, as the prizes include shots for each round’s winners, gift certificates, and a bottle of liquor
Where? Fox Square Building, 53 Connecticut St., Greenhills, San Juan
What time? Come early. Registration is at 7 p.m., though the actual brain stimulation can start at around 9, when the place fills up with yuppies and college students.
What to order: The five-cheese pizza. Enough said.
How much? P300 to 500 per person

Thursday: The Reserve
What for? Beer and banter, on their bench-style seating. Think of it as your new neighborhood drinking place, but much classier.
Where? City Golf Plaza (the outdoor area actually situates you right next to the greens), Doña Julia Vargas Ave., Pasig City
What time? 9 (p.m.) to 5 (a.m.). Since Ortigas spots don’t have a curfew, expect to have a longwinded drinking session, with just the right decibel of background noise to maintain good conversation. Stay longer and you might just spot a few stars doing the same on one of their post-taping sessions. (Spotted: Jericho, Angel J, Christine H, Cheska G-we’re sure you can fill in the blanks).
What to order? Their international beers, best paired with their just-hot-enough buffalo wings
How much? P120 and up for cocktails, P150 and up for the meals, P350 and up for pica-pica

AKA: Traditional Japanese rice wine that gives a steady, somewhat sleepy hit

What to order? A bottle of their perfectly sweetish sake

Saturday: Amber
What for: Envy Nights at Amber
AKA: A chic night of people-watching amidst the mirrored walls of a deluxe ultra-lounge. (Preview and stylebible.ph sponsor, naturally.) This is the place to go to when you feel like dressing up, but want the casual comfort of a swanky hotel’s bar.
Where? The Fort Strip, Taguig
What time? 11:30 p.m. commences the magic hour. The place should be filled up by then.
What to order? The bar selection is pretty standard. It’s the ambience that makes the place a winner.
How much? Around P300 for cocktails, P2,000 to P3,000 for the cheaper bottles
