Girly Bars In Cebu City

There are plenty of girly bars in Cebu that range from sports bars filled with freelancers, Bikini bars aka Go-Go Bars, right through to upmarket KTV bars. The choice is plentiful, the girls are beautiful and the prices are reasonable.

Most of the sports bars and girly bars are located in an area known as ‘Mango Square’ and in an area nearby down the road about 250m away. El Gecko and All Stars always seem to be the most popular among the local expat community in this area, the expats here are also a lot more welcoming than in Manila if you are a tourist as they are less business orientated and happy to here about where you’re from and give you some pointers about Cebu, the girls in these bars are also quite happy go lucky and a lot of fun to have a few drinks with and maybe a few games of pool.

Mango Square bars definitely has the bars with the most attractive girls, as well as the area known as Colon in southern Cebu near the university. The Mango Square bars are primarily for the foreigners, whilst the bars in Colon are more for the local Filipinos. The best bars in Mango Square are the Norweigan bars located near the Jollibee with Vikings being the best among the lot.

However, all these bars are located within about 300m of each-other so best bet as with anywhere is to take a little stroll on your first night around 8-9pm and pop your head into each one, maybe a beer, and check out the talent and the atmosphere as you never truly know where the type of girl you’re looking for may be working that night! Mango Square bars will set you back about P3,000 for the barfine, so about half the price of Burgos Street. The bars in Colon are probably not to the taste of most foreigners as they are a bit more shabby and full of local Filipino guys sitting around drinking buckets of Red Horse, however these bars are a lot cheaper and you may strike it lucky with a girl for a couple of lady drinks…

The more upmarket KTV bars are spread all over Cebu city and mainly target Korean and Japanese customers, however there’s no issues with foreigners of any nationality and they are of course very accommodating to all it’s just that these bars have been specifically designed for the taste of Japanese and Korean men.

A lot of people say that the best looking girls in Cebu are found in the KTV bars and if you go by the old saying that you get what you pay for then in our experience the quantity of high quality girls at these types of bars is higher for sure, however you will still have no issues finding some high quality girls in Mango square bars or at the freelancer options. In the KTV bars you can pay about P500 for a ‘karaoke room’ if you want to get a bit closer and intimate with the girl, or you can just barfine them back to your hotel for about P5,000-P6,000, which can be negotiated depending on how many lady drinks you buy and how busy the bar is that night, KTV exceptions like East Paris and Arena can charge up to P7,000-8,000. Girls in the sports bars cannot be taken out of the bar, however you can wait till she finishes work or try and get her number to meet up the next day etc.

Drink prices: Beers are cheap at the girly bars between 70-80 Pesos per bottle, the sports bars also have draft beer available for about the same price. Lady drinks range from 170-200 Pesos in the sports bars and bikini bars and from 300-600 Pesos in the KTVs.

Key pointers

If you are spending more than a couple of days then make sure you look into the tourist spots outside of the city i.e. A day trip to Bohol island is always a great way to get out of the city and either hit the beach or do some adventure travel. Bohol is also a nice place to take a lady friend for a day trip, it’s not very far from Cebu and you can access it via the ferry which leaves regularly every day.

If you have a little bit more time and money then the nicer resorts are a little bit outside of the city centre, these are a little less bargirl friendly but if you say you are booking the room for 2 persons then you won’t have any issues. Most of these resorts outside the city will have private swimming pools and their own private beach and they are only about 30-45min taxi or Grab ride away from all the action in the city centre.

Cebu is the best place in the Philippines to meet either freelancers or normal girls, the competition in the city itself is relatively low compared to Manila as you don’t get as many foreign expats living and working in Cebu and the tourism is away from the city centre. Cebuanas are also regarded as the most beautiful in the Philippines and as a foreigner you will be far more appealing in Cebu than in Manila which is swamped by foreign men so the women don’t really care if you’re a foreigner or not, unless they come from the province and then they’re usually only looking for a sugar daddy kind of deal.

Cebu Lechon (roast pork) is the most famous in the Philippines, it is delicious and one of the best pork dishes in the world in our opinion. You can find this Lechon everywhere in Cebu, but the best Lechon is hard to determine as every Filipino you ask will tell you his uncle or some family member makes the best, of course… The main difference with the Cebu Lechon is that they stuff the inside of the pig with various herbs and sometimes chilli prior to spit roasting over hot coals for several hours, making the skin perfectly crispy and the meat tender and juicy, packed full of flavour! You will even see Lechon stalls at the airport with droves of Filipinos buying up big before they get on their flight back to Manila as no doubt they have been asked by their family to bring it home as ‘Pasalubong’ (a typical tradition in the Philippines whereby if you travel somewhere far from your home you are expected to bring home gifts from that area).

It is quite easy to get ferries from Cebu to other islands in the Visayas if you want to go diving, snorkelling, or just visit some remote tropical islands to get the true tropical paradise experience you see on the postcards.
