20 Bars to Match Your Every Mood

Choose your own nocturnal adventure, from the see-and-be-seen, to the falling-apart-at-the-seams.

(SPOT.ph) Once upon a time, clubs had commercials-mood-captors aired on local channels to approximate the so-called scene. In between afternoon cartoons, you'd see them: ridiculous AVPs complete with jerky camera zooms, '90s electronica, and flashing namesakes like the now-becky-appropriated Mars.


This time, though, it's not that easy. You have to be there, to be there. Fortunately, SPOT.ph has taken it upon itself to do the dirty work, with this comprehensive guide to the metropolis' nighttime haunts. Choose your own adventure, from the see-and-be-seen, to the falling-apart-at-the-seams. Don't say we didn't warn you...
