  • A combination of gastronomical prowess, good taste in music and mid-century interiors are the essential things that make Desiderata Lounge a desirable place to dine and drink while reveling the good things in life.

    It is located at a rather quiet area of BGC, perhaps an intentional choice as to reflect the desire for a chic and cozy lounge experience where you might expect Fitzgerald, Bill Evans or even Hemingway to hang out in the evenings if they were still alive.

    Mindful of both external and internal aspect, the cozy lounge also has a well-curated music playlist ranging from blues, jazz, soul, and funk while the volume is tempered accordingly to allow a fruitful exchange of thoughts. The love and care for music extends to the lounge having a dedicated vinyl music library with a selection of jazz and blues standards that guests can cruise through and listen.

    And of course, the tipping point of the Desiderata experience is their succulent food (which is best described as an “upgraded pulutan”) and invigorating drinks. The ingredients used by Desiderata are locally sourced except for wagyu, which is sourced from the US (sticking to the local roots whenever they can).

    Sea foods are also locally sourced; not only does Desiderata stick to local products, but they also support sustainable fishing ARTESMAR.
