restaurants with entertainment

Does anyone know of any restaurant with decent entertainment ( no hanky-panky type) but no formal dress code either, located somewhere in Manila? Some people say I can also find places like that in hotels but I don't have any idea where...

Is Manila a 24 hour city? If so, are there decent places that serve meals after mid night?

What are good places in Greater Manila area only to visit for a group of foreign tourists?

Any information will be appreciated.

I don't know how late they stay open considering it's at the Bayleaf Hotel (Intramuros), but we thoroughly enjoy this place for the atmosphere, the food and on weekends the excellent live band. I also recommend dining at the restaurant just under the roof deck during weekday lunch (when they have the Filipino buffet) both for the good food and best view of the city.


If you do visit during the day, you're already within the old walled city and walking distance to the churches, forts and just outside Intramuros, the National Museum (Museum of the Filipino People). The heat at midday could be too much so you could also ride a calesa (horse-drawn carriage) around this entire area. If you're a big group, you may want to arrange a day tour with transport. One company that does this is Jeepney Tours. They have airconditioned tourist jeepneys. This link should be current.


Seems they have quite a menu of tours. Hope you find what you're looking for. Enjoy your stay!

Visit Greenbelt in Makati, as it has numerous restaurants. The only live music I can recall there is Cafe Havana - not a venue I particularly like, but there may be one or two others.

The excellent Spanish restaurant Alba in Tomas Morato Street, Quezon City has a great small band wandering from table to table. They have a wide repetoire.

Remedios Circle in Malate is another possibility.

The Sunset Buffet at the Sofitel has a cultural show. Lovely location around the pool with Manila Bay views.

Some suggestions in Makati area:



For something a bit more upscale, try Conway's Bar at the Shangri-La or Martinis at the Mandarin:
