The Renaissance of The Establishment

UPDATE: This club is currently closed for renovation (Summer 2012)

Not a lot has been happening in the past 6 months in The Establishment. Now that both Encore/Embassy and Members Only are closed, we guess they thought it would be a good idea for an official re-launch. They call it “The Renaissance of The Establishment” and it’s happening on Friday August 5 2011 (see flyer below).

Starting August 5 The Establishment will have 4 weekly club-nights:

  • Wednesdays: Retro Rockin’ Wednesday with the Bloomfields (live band playing classic pop/rock)
  • Thursdays: Grind with DJs Toy Armada and Brian Cua
  • Fridays: Friday Fiasco with DJs Funky Avi and Travis Monsod and DJs Kat & Lexi
  • Saturdays: Mode Prive Saturday with DJs Alex Pain and JC Sandejas & Opening DJs Carlo, Nampu and Pat Po.

The Establishment will also feature hot Model bartenders Alexandra Santos and Janelle Olafson.

I have seen some of the promotors calling The Establishment “Opus of The Fort”, although we don’t agree with that, it’s definitely a really nice lounge/club and I hope the re-launch will be a big success and that The Establishment will become another exclusive hot spot in Manila nightlife.

The Establishment Manila is located at The Fort Strip in Bonifacio Global City (The Fort).


Opus

Opus

UPDATE MARCH 2014. OPUS is now closed. 

Opus is an upscale restaurant and lounge/club in Resorts World Manila. It is currently the place to see and be seen in Manila. In weekends the lounge is more like a club. It is always packed with beautiful people and the atmosphere is amazing. They have great DJs playing mainly house tunes (mixed with hiphop/mashup and party music on Saturdays).

Opus is absolutely one of the top hotspots in Manila. We’ve spotted many of the hottest celebrities in Opus and even the president of the Philippines has visited Opus with his girlfriend.

The Opus lounge is renaissance inspired with high ceilings and tall mirror windows on bright white walls. Opus has 3 bars. The Front Bar, located at the main entrance, the Main Bar located at the lounge entrance and Art Bar, which is the most memorable (it’s a massive chrome sculpture that serves as the lounge’s centerpiece).

Lunch and dinners at Opus are served in style, in an elegant 60-seat glass-encased dining area.  The dining area is made-up with platinum hued banquets and marble tables. The walls are flanked by deconstructed fine art murals. Opus serves modern European cuisine by Manila’s top chef Carlos Miguel.

Time in Manila is CURRENTLY CLOSED (more info regarding the closure here…)

Time in Manila is one of the only clubs in the Metro that focuses mainly on (underground) house and dance music. This club is different than most of the other superclubs and has a great underground vibe created by a combination of the interior, the crowed and the DJs that have a passion for house music. At Time you can expect to hear various EDM styles such as techno, tech-house, deep-house, electro, trance, etc.

Club Time regularly invites some of the top international house and techno DJs. Some DJs that have played at Time are Nick Warren, Darren Emerson, Yousef, Secret Cinema, Rosie Romero, John 00 Flemming, Jazzanova and Nelski.

Time has 3 floors. On the first floor is the main DJ booth, the dancefloor and a bar. The second floor consists of a balcony (build around the first floor) and  a lounge area with bar. The top floor is an outdoor roof terrace which has it’s own bar and DJ booth. A great place to relax and have a cocktail while listening to some nice beats.

Time is currently open 5 nights a week:

Monday: Monday Fever at the Roof-Deck
Tuesday: Strike at Time (Jessica Milner and DJ Cammy)
Wednesday: Femme at Time (house, techno and electro beats hosted by Androgyny Productions)

Update, click here for all Draft Gastropub Manila info, including info about the new branch to open in Rockwell.

In June a new bar / lounge / pub will open in Manila called Draft Gastropub. This pub is located at The Fort Strip in Bonifacio Global City in the place that was formally The Cafetaria next to embassy/encore (suite/cuisine). Finally Manila will get a bar that will serve the world’s best beers in ice cold kegs! As you might know it’s very hard to find imported draft beer in The Philippines (we don’t know of any places beside Distillery that currently sell imported draft beers), so we are very excited about this. Besides a great selection of import beers from the keg Draft gastopub will also offer great European food from chef Carlo Miguel.

The soft launch opening of Draft gastro-pub is at Saturday June 18 2011


Exciting times in the Manila club scene

A lot is happening and changing the coming months in the Manila clubbing scene.  On June 3 there will be the Members Only Closing Party after which Members Only will close for renovation, to be re-opened later this year as Prive. In this same week a new bar/lounge/gastropub will be opened called Draft (at The Fort Strip in the place that was formally Cuisine/Suite ). This will be the second place in the Philippines that will provide imported draft beers (the first one is Distillery). On June 23 Republiq, still the hottest club in Manila, is having it’s first year anniversary party. In July Encore (formally Embassy) will close it’s doors for a big renovation.

Members Only

UPDATE:
This club is now closed. It will re-open in October under a new name (Prive)

On June 3 2011 was the Members Only Closing Party. The club will now be totally renewed and will re-open in October 2011 as Boutique club Prive.

Members Only is an exclusive high-end bar and lounge located in Bonifacio Global City in Manila. It is the country’s first high-end private membership bar and lounge. Guests are ensconced in aged leather and sparkling chandelier adorned vaulted ceilings, as interiors that fuse luxury reminiscent of the Old World,  with all that is hip, fashionable, and modern.

It is an exhilarating place to be, with the energy of the city’s top movers and shakers electrifying an environment tailor-fit for celebration whether through animated conversations or a quiet toast to the good life. It is a place that gives way to intimate evenings, or energetic festivities, from relaxed entertaining, or just unwinding after a productive workday.

Dining at Members Only is all about gastronomic favorites that simply hit the spot, masterfully prepared by renowned Chef, Fernando Aracama. Whatever you fancy, a fab fare surely awaits for you to indulge. On showcase each night at the distinctive 35-foot long bar are some of the most coveted, most sought after top shelf  liquor brands, from your favorite single malts, to a wide selection of wines, to rare spirits that you can find no where else in the country.

Members Only used to be a very exclusive private club. The only way to get in was by being invited by a member or by being a member yourself (hence the name Members Only). Members Only had very strict door policy. No membership or not with a member, meant no entry.

Especially in the first year the club was a real Members Only club, but when the place got less popular they changed their policy and got some promotors to host certain nights. On these nights you could get in the club by being added to the guest-list by the promotor that hosts the nights.
