Makati is a district of towering buildings and men in business suits and is known to be a more upscale part of Metro Manila. But as soon as offices turn off their lights and everyone clocks out from their stations, a different part of Makati shines bright.

What to expect in Manila Pub Crawl


Everyone will have a good time over unique cocktails and bars. Nico Fowler a.k.a Nico Locco, the Italian-Canadian model, boy-next-door and resident party-goer will be the host of the event. He will lead the participants into a chain of bars curated to celebrate the Filipino culture. 


There can also be times when the people behind the bars will do the hosting. Famed Kalel Demetrio a.k.a Liquido Maestro, the co-owner of Agimat sometimes joins the fun. After five bars and even more empty glasses of drinks, new bonds of friendships will be made, pictures you didn’t know you took will be on your phone, and of course a guaranteed good time. 


The only thing we can’t guarantee is if you will remember all of these the next morning.
