Manila

Guys, Manila is a big, busy and polluted city, however if you play it the right way it can also be one hell of a lot of fun as there are women literally everywhere! Yes, it’s more expensive than everywhere else in the Philippines, however when you compare these prices to other major cities in the West, Middle East or Asia then it’s more than half the price and double the fun!

Drinks in a Manila girly bar will set you back around 160 Pesos for a beer and up to 390 Pesos for a lady drink in the bars on Burgos Street. However, again it’s how you ‘play it’ i.e. don’t buy a lady drink unless you’ve spoken to her for a few minutes first and established that she is available and willing to go home with you, yes that’s right the girls DO NOT have to leave with you if they don’t want to, however if you chat them nicely a little at first and they think you’re ok and most importantly a SAFE GUY then you won’t have many issues.

Alternatively, buy a lady drink if you want a lap dance, hey go for it most girls will do it for you for about 10-15mins, again establish with the girl that she is willing to do this with you BEFORE you agree to buy a lady drink that way you avoid any potential disappointment. Also, if you’re just looking for company then sure buy a lady drink but you’re going to struggle for much conversation in most girly bars as they music is loud…

Most girly bars in Manila the Mamasan’s will ask for higher prices for “BarFine” meaning short time or long time ‘boom-boom’ in your hotel, this is all dependent on the type of girl and how much she likes you, or needs the money. Most girls from a Manila girly bar will happily spend the entire night with you and leave after breakfast if you are clear with them from the start that’s what you want, and again I can’t stress this enough if you are a decent guy and treat the girls with some respect you should have no issues with this. Most stories we’ve heard of girls leaving straight away after ‘boom-boom’ are either because the guy was a total prick, too drunk, or didn’t make it clear that’s what he wanted. In all seriousness these girls are people as well so treat them with some respect and have some fun with them and your overall experience will be TEN TIMES BETTER, it’s not rocket science, just don’t be a douche.

If you’ve asked around about Manila you’ve probably heard it’s one of the most congested, over populated, and polluted cities on earth and we cannot deny that, we wont even try. However, again it’s all about what you make of the city. If you are in Manila purely for the night life then a lot of the congestion will not be an issue as after 9pm on most nights the traffic starts to die down and you can get a GRAB taxi (yes, download the GRAB app now!) relatively quickly and cheaply to anywhere you want in the city. So just make a basic plan of attack for each day to be in or near the area you want to be that night for dinner before you party, that way you can walk to the bars after you’ve eaten and had your pre-drinks. For example if you want to go out in Burgos Street, Makati don’t have dinner in Fort Bonifacio, plan your day so you end up for dinner somewhere in Makati i.e. Greenbelt Shopping Centre and your only a 15min walk or 5min GRAB ride away from all the action on Burgos Street. Sunday is the major exception to all this as you can pretty much go anywhere in the city at anytime as the traffic is normally very light.

If you are in the Philippines for a short vacation it is our suggestion that you only spend about 2-3 nights in Manila as there are plenty of other places to visit in this tropical island paradise nation that are just as fun and half the price. If your aim is to meet and sleep with as many girls as possible during your time in Manila, there are countless options to choose from. Below we will give you a comprehensive guide to all the best locations to find what you’re looking for, it’s a jungle out there so let us be your laser guided missile to the most bang for your buck!

Girly Bars in Manila

Manila has 5 main districts with girly bars: P Burgos Street in Makati, EDSA Entertainment Complex, Ermita, Malate and Quezon City.

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 eachother, 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!

P.Burgos street location map

 

Ermita is the oldest red light district in Manila with most of the bars located along Del Pilar Street. This place had its hey-day long ago in the 70s, 80s and 90s, since then the local government has made big efforts to clean up the area and many of the bars have since closed and moved to other areas. Despite this there are some great spots still remaining, most notably LA Café which is an institution in itself among the Manila faithful. LA Café is a freelancer bar with two ‘floors of whores’.

This place operates 24/7 and you can find a girl here at any hour of the day if you want, although the most attractive girls tend to be upstairs after 10pm. Prices here range from P0 if you can chat them and buy a few drinks right up to P3,000 (if she’s worth it). One trick here is that a lot of the girls from the surrounding Korean and Japanese KTV bar scene come to LA Café at around 2am if they haven’t found a customer for the night i.e. you can score a 9/10 here for P3k instead of the P6-8k you would have paid, plus drinks at the ktv bars in the area.

Another cool place to check out in Ermita is called ‘Cowboy Grill’ which is a live music and entertainment venue where all the locals hang out, as well as plenty of freelancers. If you want a typical Filipino night time entertainment experience then head to Cowboy Grill, the drinks are also relatively cheap here as well.

Quality of bars:  Medium Price range freelancer:  P1,000-P6,000 Overall rating: 7.5/10

Key pointers

LA Café is basically the best place in town if you want to go for freelancers, it also has a live band upstairs and live sports on tv all night.

Best looking girls will be found upstairs, or downstairs not long before upstairs opens.

A lot of upstairs girls are looking for Korean and Japanese men only.

Put on your charm offensive for the girls upstairs as they can and often do easily reject you if you’re not Japanese or Korean.

The Manila Bay walk and US Embassy are not far from Ermita.

There are easily 50 KTVs in Malate and the highest concentration can be found in and around Adriatico Street.

Location map Malate

Pasay

EDSA entertainment complex in Pasay is comparable to Nana Plaza in Bangkok and is basically one big complex with about 7 bars inside and one owner of the whole lot. The best bar by far is Cotton Club and bar fines are about slightly cheaper than P Burgos Street. The quality of girls here is not as high as the quantity, best get here before 9pm as if there are a lot of Korean men in town they will generally get there when it opens and take all the best looking girls straight away.

There are a few other KTV bars in Pasay, however these are primarily set up for foreign and local businessmen i.e. the prices for everything in these is basically double P Burgos and I’ve always struggled to see the difference in quality of the girls, so don’t waste your time unless you’re not strapped for cash and you want what is considered the cream of the crop there’s a bar in Pasay called ‘Miss Universe’ and you’ll be able to find a ‘Miss Philippines’ looking model dancing on a massive stage who you can barfine for about P12,000 excluding table fee, drinks etc.

Also in Pasay is the casino complex near the Mall of Asia (MOA). The casinos are great places to spend a night and like any casino in the world there are also plenty of girls hanging around hoping you win big on the tables and fancy transferring your winnings straight to their purse. Mall of Asia is also a great place to meet girls in the day time and there’s plenty of freelancers at night roaming around, this mall is also massive with plenty of entertainment and food options to choose from. The best way to pick up freelancers in the casinos or at MOA is via ‘WeChat’, so download that now as it is your ticket to not wasting time trying to determine if she is a freelancer when you can basically sit in a café at MOA and scan for all the girls within a 2km radius, 90% of girls on WeChat will be freelancers so just ask them straight up ‘’How much is your service’’ and take it from there.

Key pointers

If you have the budget then staying at one of the Casinos in Pasay can be a nice option as they are new and 5 star with plenty of casino games to gamble on, as well as the best and newest nightclubs in the Philippines and the best restaurants in Manila, of course price tags to match.

If you want to go to the restaurants or clubs at the casinos then there is a basic dress code. Also at the clubs the better you dress the more chance you have of picking up a stunner as this is Asia the women tend to be more attracted to smart dressed men then those wearing shorts and sing-lets.

Mall of Asia is a great place to either take a date and watch the sun set over Manila Bay on the Bay Walk, or alternatively find normal or freelancer girls on WeChat and Tinder.

Quezon City can be very difficult to get too and from due to traffic and distance from the city centre. The girly bars here are big KTV bars which are primarily targeted at the local population, however if you want to leave no stone un-turned then sure why not go check some of them out. The most popular tends to be ‘Classmates’ where the girls all run around in naughty catholic school-girl uniforms. There’s not a whole lot else to see or do in Quezon city as again it’s mainly part of Manila ‘Suburbia’.

Freelancing Girls in Manila

As previously mentioned there are plenty of places to find Freelancing girls in Manila, however the best and fastest way to connect with these girls is definitely through WeChat. The more high end freelancing girls will always be found at the casinos and up market nightclubs, however Café Havana in Greenbelt shopping mall Makati is also a decent place, although watch out for the ladyboys, unless that’s your thing!

Robinsons Malate is a good spot to find freelancers, and so is basically any major shopping mall in Metro Manila, especially at outside cafes, bars or restaurants. In Fort Bonifacio sometimes you can find freelancers at the cafes along High Street, or at Burgos Circle as well.

LA Café is the biggest and best fixed venue for freelancers, some die-hard expats swear by it as still the best value for money in Manila, although in our experience it really depends on what talent is around when you go there.

Nuru, Tantric/Sacred Spot and Happy Ending Massage Parlours in Manila

If you’re looking for some tension release in the day time or after a big night out then the massage parlours are your best bet.

The most famous is StarFleet located near the Air Force One complex in Paranaque. This complex is not far from the airport and a great place to unwind after a long flight or before you check into your departure. With the girls massage each around 2,500-4,000 Pesos depending on the ‘quality’ of massage girl. These massages are fully inclusive of sex, the best being the 4,000 peso option where before sex you are taken into a shower room with a water proof mattress and given a soapy naked massage from head to toe before full release with sex in the adjacent bedroom.

There is also full sex services available at the nearby Air Force One complex which also compromises Flight 168. Air Force One itself is a large KTV bar where you can select the girls to sit and drink with you or alternatively take them into a private room for around P10,000. Flight 168 is by far the better option with their Economy and Business Class girls waiting eagerly to give you that final release to send you on your flight home, something nice to think about on the journey.

An alternative to the “traditional” massage parlors are the nuru massage parlours with the most popular being Shogun. They’ve got three locations in Manila and specialize in body to body massages using nuru gel imported from Thailand. The price is 3,000 Pesos including tip.

Overall the best massage and most intimate massage parlour in Manila is the Abaccaa Spa in Malate and Makati. This is home to the infamous ‘Sacred spot’ or prostate/lingam massage and if you’ve never had one then you’re in for a treat as it has been often described as ‘complete cock worship’. Basically you get a proper full body massage light or hard depending on your taste followed by a sensual prostate massage and then slowly and teasingly brought to full release. The Abacca Spa is open 24/7.

 

Happy Ending Massage in Manila
There are several massage venues in Manila which will provide you with a Happy Ending, however it is important to note that not all venues will offer this. More often than not the venues that do offer this service are not on the street front, and are usually upstairs or a bit hidden, or alternatively have some bright flashing lights outside.

Best thing to do to be sure is just ask them if they have ‘Lingam’ or ‘Sacred Spot’ massage service, they will politely tell you yes or no and won’t be judgemental for the most part.
Prices: The standard rate for massages in Manila are 300-400 Pesos for a Full Body Massage (1 hour). Make sure they use oil in their massage otherwise it can be a not so ‘Happy Ending’. Basically P500 will get you hand job and P1,000 might get you a BJ, however most massage girls are not that interested in doing this.

 

Nightclubs in Manila

The nightclubs in the Philippines are not what you’re used to back home, this is largely because of the Philippine culture where everyone goes out in their social group making it very difficult to approach girls as they are usually sat at tables in large groups with several guys. More often than not if you see girls at nightclubs alone or in a pair then they are escorts looking to score for the night. Despite this nightclubs in Manila can be fun if you have Philippine friends the whole scene tends to open up to you along with the social networks and subsequently encounters with Filipina girls.

The best nightclubs in Manila are located at the Casinos, Okada, Crown, and Resorts World, these are the newest and most exclusive, also the most expensive. Fort Bonifacio is a close second for nightclubs, but overall has the best high end bar scene in Manila. Makati also has some nightclubs but there not as good as the casinos or Fort Bonifacio, however the ‘hidden bar’ scene in Makati is the best in Manila, so if you’re more into meeting regular girls and regular bars and nightclubs stick to these areas and you’ll have a blast. Best thing to do is google ‘nightclubs’ for the area you want to go as they tend to change name and ownership often but their locations are usually fixed.

Note: The best looking girls in the Philippines i.e. ‘IT’ girls, fashion models, celebrities etc. Will all hang out at the ‘hottest clubs’ of the moment, as of writing this that is definitely Cove in Okada Casino, but dress to impress and be prepared to part with upwards of P20,000 if you want to make any kind of impression on the local jet-setter and fashion-ista crowd at these venues.

“Normal” Bars in Manila

If Girly bars, Loud and expensive Nightclubs or bars full of freelancers aren’t your thing or you just want a break to relax with a nice beer or cocktail then there are of course plenty of options for your taste.

The best bar in Manila is without doubt in the Peninsula hotel with an adjacent cigar room where you can buy a Cuban cigar to have with a 12yr old McCallan Scotch Whiskey. Best tip for this place is be there in the late afternoon for happy hour 2 for 1 on all drinks!

Other bars include to SkyDeck bar on the top of the I’M Hotel in Makati not far from Burgos street. This bar has undoubtedly the best 360 Degrees view of Manila and it’s a great spot to sit and sip a cocktail as the sun sets, or at night to look out over all the lights of metro Manila.
Bank Bar in Fort Bonifacio is a hidden bar through the pantry of the 7/11 underneath the RCBC building, an uber cool upmarket cocktail bar for the jet setting and financial players of the BGC corporate scene. One of the coolest bars in Manila is also a hidden back bar and you can find it at Pinks Hot Dogs underneath the Shangri-La in Fort Bonifacio.

If you’re looking for a bit of an adventure then why not try and find your way to all the hidden bars in Makati, this has become a big trend in the Manila bar scene and there’s some cool and interesting bars to be found in unusual places, best tip is if you can find them most of them have a hidden secret menu, or another small bar that you can only gain access too if you know the secret password! Shhhh…..

Ladyboys in Manila

Manila has a thriving ladyboy scence, not quite to the level of Thailand, however you can find what you’re looking for in Manila if that is your thing. The best places to find ladyboys is at ‘Mixed Nuts on P Burgos Street in Makati, prices are generally the same as the regular ‘100% girl’ bars in P Burgos. Otherwise the best place to find ladyboys is where the other freelancer girls hang out, especially Café Havana in Greenbelt Mall, Makati.

If you are using Tinder then you will come across loads of ladyboys on here eager to please you, a lot of times happily to do it for free if you know how to chat them up properly. It’s very hard to tell the difference between Ladyboys and ‘100% real girls’ on Tinder as they are so good with photoshop nowadays. However, usually if you read their bio there’s some clues in it or just plain and simple ‘I’m a ladyboy’. Best thing to do is just politely ask them through chat if you are not sure?

Prices: Ladyboys in Manila will generally be cheaper than the ‘100% real girls’ i.e. around P1,000 should do the trick, so long as you know how to talk with them, sometimes they might just like you and will be all yours for a few drinks and breakfast in the morning.
