(SPOT.ph) Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but who says you have to wake up early to have it? Break the rules and head to B.A.D. Late Night Breakfast Bar for your after-sunset breakfast fix.
There’s nothing typical about the newest concept from the group behind some of BGC’s buzziest nightclubs (Yes Please, Palace Pool Club, and more).
