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.

Normal Night Clubs in Cebu

J-Ave in Mango Square and the nearby Liv club are your best bet for the nightclub scene, expect loads of freelancers at J-Ave and not as many at Liv, there are some there but Liv is more for the jet setting and fashion-ista scene of Cebu i.e. if you want to mack on the hottest girls in Cebu then you can find them at Liv, however dress to impress, bring you’re A-game and don’t be shy to throw some cash around at the bar.

Buying a bottle of overpriced whiskey as well as getting your own table is a sure fire way to attract some attention and potential new friends for the night. Liv is also notorious for Lady Boys so if it’s not your thing then make sure to ask before you make your move. FYI if you are not into Lady Boys it can still be a huge tactical advantage to befriend a couple as this can be your ticket to scoring the hottest Filipinas around, we will go into this in more detail in the ‘Dating Filipinas’ section. ICON is another good night club location, however the crowd tends to be much younger here and there’s not many freelancers inside i.e. if you’re looking for a more legitimate club to meet some local Filipinas or tourist girls then you can find what you’re looking for here.

Entrance at the night clubs in Cebu is usually free except at the up market clubs 100/200 Pesos at J-Ave, 200/300 Pesos at Liv.

Beers are around 70-90 Pesos, spirits around 150 Pesos, whiskey 120-180 Pesos per shot and a bottle of say Johnnie Walker starts at about 1,200 Pesos at J-Ave and Bombay Saphire around 1,450 Pesos at Liv.

“Normal” Girls in Cebu

The best place by far is the Ayala Mall, or any other mall in Cebu City, if you want to pick up a decent girl in Cebu then stay away from the bars, some of the clubs are ok but you’re most likely going to find a party girl who will probably be looking to score as much from you as possible i.e. Gold Digger.

Cebu is full of gorgeous women, this is where the Spanish colony was established and primarily based for over 300 years and just by looking around you can understand quickly why they stayed for so long! Most of the beauty queens in the Philippines are known as ‘Cebuanas’ i.e. slightly taller, milky skin, with a mix of Hispanic and Filipina across all the other features, so if it’s the traditional Filipina beauty queen you’re looking for you’ll have a lot more chance in Cebu than Manila, best part is if you find these type of girls in Manila they have normally moved there to make it big in Tv or Fashion etc.

This means they can become tainted by the ‘Manila Lifestyle’ and they lose a lot of their provincial charm, whilst if you meet them in Cebu they tend to have less of an attitude, are more taken by the fact that you are a foreigner and overall you should have a lot more luck.

The best way to meet any normal girl in Cebu is the same as manila, get the Tinder app on your phone and swipe away on the girls you are interested in, if they like you back then hey you’re in with a shot and you have the chance to reel her in with your undoubted charm.

For full support in helping you find your true ‘Filipina woman’ for love or companionship get in touch with us as we have packages which can help you cut through all the pit-falls, make sure you understand the cultural differences, and overall help you to connect with that special Filipina who you’ve been longing for all these years.

Freelancers in Cebu

Cebu is the best place in the Philippines to find freelancers without a shadow of a doubt, in fact we would highly recommend that you spend more time chasing some freelancers than hitting up the clubs and bars. The best thing to do is find a smoking hot freelancer to take out to the clubs and bars with you as most often they have no issues with this and will love to party the night away with you.

The best way to find your freelancers is through WeChat and Tinder apps, the best place to meet them is at the Ayala mall where they will usually make it pretty obvious too you that they are a freelancer looking for some action with a guy like you. However, there are freelancers all over the city, especially in and around the bars and clubs, just like Manila, however much cheaper and way less business oriented i.e. the freelancers in Cebu are looking to score you for your whole vacation whereas the freelancers in Manila are looking to boom-boom and bye-bye.


A good spot to sit and watch all the action as well as meet any girls from WeChat or Tinder is TGI Fridays at the Ayala mall. You can sit outside here or at the air-conditioned bar, the food is decent enough and the happy hour ‘Drink Down’ menu is a great way to get your evening started with bottomless Mojitos.

In terms of prices for freelancers they can range from P500 in around the Colon area, however don’t expect a spring bunny for these prices as you get what you pay for. The Ayala mall girls generally will be happy with around P1,500 and maybe less if you buy them dinner and some drinks in the mall etc.

The clubs like J-Ave you won’t get away with less than P3,000 and some drinks

in the club, plus a bit of chit chat etc. as even though they are freelancers they don’t want to be completely obvious about it inside the bar, often they will agree to go with you and tell you to meet them somewhere nearby. Girls on Wechat and Tinder can go from P1,000 up to P6,000 depending on the quality of the girl and the services she offers. For more information on picking up and dating Filipina’s take a look at our ‘Dating Filipinas page, also if you’re travelling alone and you want some wingman support let us know we can arrange a travel and tour package to suit your needs so you don’t waste time and money!

Chuva Chuva Massage and 108 Spa Inc. Cebu

Chuva Chuva on F. Ramos Street and 108 Spa Inc. found on Tres Borces Padres Street arethe only massage parlours in Cebu that provide a guaranteed happy ending, everywhere else depends on the girl and often that means their service is

nowhere near as good because they don’t have a good technique etc. P900 will get the job done i.e. massage and lingam with release, the girls will always try to up sell you on services like ‘You want see boobs sir?” but honestly we’ve never seen the point in that because if their technique is good you should be so relaxed that them taking their top off is a pointless exercise and a waste of money. But hey if you’re really into that then sure no problem stuff like that will probably set you back an additional P1,000. Services at these salons are good and the girls are quite pretty, however the best service is still at Abacca Spa in Malate, Manila, although the prices in Cebu are much better, of course.

Ladyboys in Cebu

Bo’s Coffee on the second floor of the Ayala Mall is the local hangout spot for Cebuana Ladyboys, pretty much this place works like Café Havana in Greenbelt mall, Makati. Sit down have a coffee and if you give any indication that you are looking for some ladyboy action, well they will be pretty easy to get to come over and join you at your table.

Just one pointer when picking up any freelancers at any venue make sure you don’t fall for the ‘bill out’ scam i.e. these

freelancers have most likely been sitting at that café all afternoon waiting for a ‘fish’ to come along and not only pay for their company for the night but also pay for the bill that they have been amassing all day. Best way to avoid this is not to join them at their table but invite them to come and sit at YOUR TABLE. Again, like with ‘’100% girl’’ freelancers the best way to meet ladyboys is on Wechat or Tinder. If you want to meet Ladyboys at clubs or bars then the best bet is Liv and then Mango Square. Again, just like Manila the Ladyboys are a lot cheaper than ‘’100% real girls’’ i.e. P1,000-P1,500 should get the job done, however the more surgery they’ve had the more their price tends to go up.
