Strumm's is a retro bar popular with the Manila crowd and expatriates that has live band music every day of the week except Sundays. From jazz to disco and rock, the bands have their own following from the urban professionals to groups having reunions. It is located along busy Jupiter Street in Makati, a little over a kilometer from the... More

We prioritized our first night in Manila to go to Strumms, and whilst the staff are really friendly, the band Route 60 absolutely fantastic, the food choice poor, and the pizza we had utterly disgusting! Who's ever heard of pizza made with squirty cheese sauce? The 'chef' should be ashamed of himself - use mozzarella or similar!!! Back to the... More

It's not really my thing, but I will say that the quality of the bands (there were 2 this Friday eve.) were very good (I can't remember the name of the first band but the guitarist was deadly good). The staff were really friendly, the food and drinks were good too. Prices were ok and it's not a big place.... More

Living overseas makes us behind of all that is nice and new in our home country. STRUMMS was suggested by a friend which left me curious as they were described as "great", and so we went and see :) Now i'd say, the best band to entertain!! and worse--would make you dance :) Highly recommended!

Wanna escape the "loud", the crowds and the girly bars? Come here. Generally an older crowd with some younger students and singles looking for more chill prospects ... Didn't try the food, but there's heaps nearby if you wanna try (read my other recent review for great / famous traditional food). Drinks are cheap. Cover charge is P350 pp which... More

For fans of the 70's, 80's and 90's music, the Strumms is the place to go. There are several live bands playing in this place nightly and at least 2,bands will alternate each night. Singing along and dancing is a must as the bands are so good. For drinks and food, they have a great selection. it is service with... More

For the past couple of months, I've been a regular Strumms customer. Thursday gig is my favorite. Juan Miguel Salvador rocks! Plus good ambience, very courteous staff, superb music and GREAT FOOD!!!! This is the best place to unwind and have fun with loved ones, friends and officemates. Also, entrance fee is consummable. Amaaaaaaaaaazing! 😊😊😊

Been here lots of times. First with my bf, then with friends, and always with friends.. Bands playing are really good. Drinks are ok. Food is average. Crowd is decent. Staffs are friendly. Advisable to older generation. Teenager will never like the music in this place. It's always our option for music and drinks. Better to make reservation especial for... More
