Discover The Fort Bonifacio Global City nightlife - Manila
Nightlife at the Fort, Taguig
The Fort Bonifacio Global City (a.k.a. BGC) may be the youngest addition to the city scene, but this commercial-residential area has loads of upscale establishments that can entertain you all night long. Its clubs and bars are constantly brimming with loud music, great drinks, and if you are lucky, a few celebrities looking to get some R&R. One thing you must remember is that most of its venues are just a few feet away from one another. So if you are planning to hop from one party to another, be sure not to go all out in your first club.
Valkyrie Club and The Pool Club are the largest and most popular dancing places of the city. They are just one next to the other and it is possible to visit both with the same ticket. Valkyrie has a huge dancefloor that hosts international DJs every week. The Pool Club is a scenic outdoor pool with beach chairs and table areas and a stage overlooking at a fluo-decorated dancefloor. The Prive Luxury Club is another famous venue in BGC, mostly because it is the go-to choice for a lot of Filipino celebrities. Besides the pumping bass of the music, they offer a wide selection of local and international beers, and popular alcoholic beverages. Plus, with the room filled with an energetic crowd, it is easy to get lost and dance with the music. The Tipsy Pig, on the other hand, is the perfect restaurant to cure your hangover blues. With their menu serving Filipino and deep fried favorites, as well as scrumptious comfort food, it is the place to be if you feel like toning down a bit. If you prefer spending the night in a laidback atmosphere, The Distillery is the place for you. This cozy venue is just the place you need if you plan on drinking a few pints of beer with your buddies and stir the night away with long, steady conversations.
Taking a taxi from Manila is the easiest way to get to BGC, but it will cost you around 300 to 400 PHP. Buses are also available, but you need to ride from EDSA to Ayala, then from Ayala to The Fort for around 50 PHP.
Trip Guru would like to remind future travelers to dress appropriately because some venues instill a strict dress code. Also, it is wise to bring a couple of friends along for safety precautions. Most venues operate around 11:00pm to 3:00am
What our experts tell about this experience.
The night I've spent with my sisters here is like no where else that I've been. Dressed well, elegant with the tallest and sexiest shoes but getting down on the dance floor with everyone, wasted and blown away by the music that they rumble here! The nightlife in BGC is something I won't forget!
My boys and I needed something a bit more laid back tonight so were at The Distillery. It's a great place for a few beers or more.. The conversation we were having wasn't even strained because they had the right amount of music tune.
