If it is your first time in Manila and you’re here purely for the girly bar scene then stay in Makati near P. Burgos Street as this is where you’ll want to spend most of your time. There’s also plenty of hotels and air bnb located in this area at low to high prices depending on your budget and you would struggle to find a place that wasn’t ‘guest friendly’ i.e. no issues with you bringing home a friend or two at night. If you want to make sure of this you can book for 2 guests in your hotel room and inform the front desk that your girlfriend will join you later. Otherwise they usually just add an additional ‘guest fee’ to your room for the night. Also, make sure to get the girl(s) to leave their ID cards at the front desk this way the front desk will call your room when they are leaving to make sure you are ok. Play it safe at all times guys! If you are staying at a more upmarket or luxury hotel then act accordingly and best foot forward i.e. don’t bring the whole party back to the hotel with you, so as not to disturb the other guests there.

P Burgos Street is a 200m long red light strip and quite similar to Soi Cowboy in Bangkok. There are also plenty of bars and restaurants on P. Burgos Street, as well as scores of more hipsterish bars, restaurants and cafes in the back streets around Burgos. There are also 4 major sports bars in the area; Handlebars which is themed as a biker bar and attracts the expat Australian crowd as it primarily shows Australian sports on the many screens in the bar, H&J Sports Bar which attracts the expat European crowds as it shows primarily European Football, as well as other international sports i.e. Rugby Union, Boxing and Motor sports. Both of these bars are within 150m of each other and have reasonably priced drinks and decent pub food. The other two sports bars are called Howzat and Mulligans, as you can probably tell Howzat is an Australian pub and Mulligans and Irish pub located about 15m away from each other, these are all good places if you want to have some drinks, good pub food and watch some sport on the TVs.

The Girly bar scene on P Burgos is hard to miss as at night the bars switch on their sea of neon lights that light up the whole street. If you are a first timer or group and want someone to show you the ropes get in contact with us and we can tailor a package to suit your wants. The best bars in terms of quality and quantity of girls are Plan B and Kojax, these are slightly more expensive than the others but you get what you pay for. If you’re looking for something a little more high class then Horizon bar further up Burgos Street after Mixed Nuts Bar (Yes this is a ladyboy bar) is more of an up market strip club with mainly Russian ‘dancers’.

Best thing to do on your first night in P. Burgos is to start at the bottom of the street at Rogues (the cheapest bar on the street) and walk up the entire street popping your head into each bar and stopping for a beer if you so fancy it. All bars will have a happy hour before around 8pm and before about 10pm there’s usually not many other guys in these bars so you can have your full pick of the girls, or get swamped by a bunch of them as you walk in! Most bars will be open at around 6pm.

There’s also plenty of freelance girls in the other bars mentioned above, as well as in some of the other bars you’ll find if you venture into the streets surrounding P. Burgos, however one word of caution is that the girls in the girly bars get very regular health checks and are taught about safe sex practices, whilst the freelancers in the bars don’t get health checks and are a far more risky proposition. Basically guys stay safe as you would back home.

Key pointers

Always negotiate the bar-fine with the mamasan before you agree to anything involving the girl leaving the bar with you.

Buy the mamasan a drink, it will help you get the best service especially if you want to go back there often.

There are a couple of bars like Rogues and Tickles where you basically never have to leave the bar.

If you want to take your girl for a bite to eat go to Filling Station, it’s like a 1950s American Diner and you can sit inside a whole Cadillac and eat your meal. The girls love this place and the food is decent and well priced.

Midget Boxing at Ringside can be a fun time, especially for a bucks or even a hens party.

Plan B and Jools have nightly shows on stage at midnight which can be a lot of fun!
