Dark and traditional. Good whiskeys available. But it has that old traditional atmosphere about it. Lots of corners to sit in. I didn't tend to go in because it looked odd being such a dark place.

A very rare spot in Metro Manila that is a real bar by world standards in the sense that you can sit and enjoy your drink there and be in Hong Kong, New York, San Francisco, Sydney... Classic without all the seemingly posh but immaterial......More

We loved our date night here. Ask the staff to give the intimate spot, they are more than willing to tour you for choices. Have the alcohol buffet, that's worth it. Service was great, they can be your photographers too.
