  • 5 Awesome Bars in Makati for an After-Work Hangout
  • What kind of hangout are you looking for after work? Definitely, a place that offers the stark contrast of a hectic 8 to 5 job. We simply want to retreat somewhere we can slow down and hang loose while having a good time. We just don’t want to go straight home, no matter how tired we got from work!

    If you’re looking for an after-work hangout spot with your pals, here are some of the best bars in Makati that are ideal for a chill kind of having fun.

    Exit Bar


    What we love about Exit Bar is the anonymity we get from its dark corners and specks of dimly lit areas. At certain times, the atmosphere is quite intimate as many people who walk in go here to indulge in relaxed conversations over cocktails and good music.

    The Curator


    At night, when it turns into a cocktail bar from a daytime cafe, The Curator is a great place to catch up with friends while enjoying specially crafted drinks from a specially curated cocktail menu. The atmosphere feels exclusive and friendly at the same time. The bartenders themselves are easy to fall into conversation with, which makes a difference when it comes to creating a memorable experience at a bar.

    20:20 is a perfect hangout spot for people who want to enjoy great club music along with their cocktails without the clammy feeling of being around an all-out dancing crowd. World-class DJs play here often, but no one expects you to leave your drink and shake a leg! Chill!

    Cu Chi Bar

    If you crave for some delicious Asian food, have your dinner at Cu Chi Bar and hang around longer for a round of cocktails with your friends. This bar in Poblacion is artistically painted with images of Vietnam, so you will feel like you’ve been transported to a whole new place. Only the live music by local artists and international DJs will remind you that you are still in Makati—not bad, actually!

    The fact that Antidote is the first and only jellyfish rooftop bar in the country makes it one of the best after-work hangout spots in the city. It is also located on the roof deck of I’M Hotel, which lets you get a 360-degree view of Metro Manila and the distant mountains and sea, which is enough to cure you of your burnout.
