Great sound, friendly staff, overzealous bouncers. Good place for dancing or just hang out and check out the local agents lurking inside the club. Bouncers need to relax and allow guests to have a good time.
Beer costs $3 and $6 door charge for male guests only.

One of the best, if not THE best clubs in Makati! Had a friend's bachelor's party there recently, and we totally had the time of our lives! Given that the groom to be doesn't go out, he had a wonderful time as well. The staff are friendly, the bouncers do a great job, and the service is pretty top notch. Above all, the music hits just right. Would highly recommend coming back again!

I had the opportunity to take a date to this club in early July, 2018. I had seen this club advertised before but hadn't had the opportunity to go until now.

I paid P6000 for a VIP table. The P6000 is consumable for food and snacks. The drink menu at Royal is MASSIVE, from the cheaper priced beers up until top-shelf liquor. Snacks include quesadillas, beef salpicao, fries, and a couple of other options. My date and I had six drinks each with three snacks. We didn't go top shelf but we didn't drink cheap beer either, so the above consumption put us at just below P6000.

The absolute most impressive drink of the night was the "Flaming Lamborghini" recommended to us by one of the bouncers. Imagine having a drink at the bottom... then the head bartender (Or manager, I didn't ask, really...) stacks a few more types of glasses on top. And then he lights the final shot on fire and lets it pour gradually down the glass tower into the contents below. And then you drink the flaming contents out of a straw. Yeah, that was pretty cool. I would post pics but I didn't take them. The club photographer did though, and Royal has a FB page where they'll hopefully post it.

Royal is regular club and not a "Superclub" but it does have really well thought out decor for its name. There's a small second floor that was unoccupied when we went there as it was a below average weekday night. Although we went at 10:30pm the bottom floor only had a few occupied tables until well after midnight (we stayed until 2am.)

There's a handful of VIP tables lining the back and sides and a few dozen standing tables closer to the middle. Asking price, also consumable, is cheaper for the standing tables. I'm assuming there's options for people not wanting to spend P5000 or more in a night, but I didn't ask at the time.

Security was plentiful and well-positioned. Serving staff were also very attentive and knowledgeable.

The club promotes itself well and I sincerely hope, unlike many of the other upscale club offerings in Manila, continues to manage its business superbly and remains a top-notch offering in Manila nightlife. (There are multiple upscale clubs that used to be in Manila, including Embassy, Alchemy, and 71 Gramercy, that have failed due to various reasons.) Would definitely consider going back.

Please don't visit this place they just scam you like they scammed us! We were ordering bottle after bottle my friends were already drunk but I wasn't and I noticed that 1 bottle that wasn't opened went missing! The waiter told me that we already drank all of them. If u ever go there and you have a VIP lounge send all the waiters away and pour your drinks yourself! They just pour you half of the bottle than they will take the bottle away and pretend it's empty.

I'm always visiting Royal whenever I'm around in makati. But a sad incident happened in Royal last Saturday. It's about a bouncer. I don't know his name but he is baldhead and he has beard. I believe he is from Syria as I heard from my friends. He pushed me & behaved with me very indecent way. He accused that I was blocking the way but I didn't. He did the same with my other friends also. They will also write complaints about him shortly.
We don't visit Royal anymore because of the indecent & rude attitude of your bouncer (Baldhead with Beard). The Filipino bouncers there at Royal is very good but this baldhead is worse. This baldhead with beard bouncer is ruining the reputation of Royal & also Royal losing good customers because of him. A lot of foreigners won't be returned to Royal, if he is continue to work there.

So if u dont book a vip table worth 5k , then dont go to this club. They ll keep u standing whole night , no place to sit . And if u try to sit even on stairs they ll come to u to get up . They expect u to keep standing whole night. I have not visited so many bars , but ZZYZX AND cowboy grills in malate r better than this . Specially ZZYZX. ZZYZX ll give u consumable table worth 1500 and its good fr two people , Atleast they give place to sit . But this bar Royal club is unjustified to their customers . 👎👎

The club itself is good. Good music. Was filled and popular. The drinks suck though. They don't know how to make the shots right. Ingrediants used are very bad tasting. Very sour. Cocktails were mixed with the worst possible ingredients. Your only choice is to get a bottle of alcohol and mix with soda. Stay clear of anything they make for you. Tables are also expensive but consumable.

I was charged 500 pesos entry. Which I didn't mind, which includes 2 drinks.. But these where not even beer, just some local brand mixer or bottle of water. However the big problem is space, considering it's not that big inside EVERY table was reserved leaving no where to sit, leaving you to huddle together in the dance floor. An upstairs bit was also vip so really space was limited to standing at the bar. I left after 30 minutes. So, go there drunk first, you might enjoy it more

I NEED TO STOP PARTYING AT CLUB ROYAL!!!!

Why you ask??

They Discriminate against transsexuals.

I visited one of the clubs in Makati last weekend and was saddened when the woman told me abruptly their was a Dress-code ????? I challenged asking “what was the code” as I was wearing high waisted jeans & a long sleeve top. No skin showing!! It almost end ed in a fight until they decided to let me in because I knew someone who was in the club ! What a shame I can’t tolerate those type of people...but in this day and age, where we should treat everyone as an equal , these clubs still Discriminate!

I felt so frustrated that night and just felt sad, instead of having fun which we are all entitled to expect!!!! Such a sad world at times. 🖕🏽

While the place and music is nice and fancy, there's a big downside management wise when it comes to treating their customers. I recently experience humiliation when they blocked me entrance for being a Ladyboy, Note that i have been in the club for a couple of times already with no record of a bad behaviour, Me and my friends try to talk and ask for examplanation from managers and staff but didnt get a proper answer they just insist they cant let me in, one funny scenario though is front person is a lesbian , made me change from my heels to a flat shoes then later said i can get in if i will get a 10k table! Theres just a clear discrimination there! So I am putting it here in case some lgbt folks or frinds of lgbt who plans to go.

Thank you.
