This isn't my list, but a writer (Igan D'Bayan) from the Philippine Star newspaper from his article on July 17th. I just thought I would throw this out there for view and discussion.
2.) Fiamma (32 Jupiter St, Belair Village, Makati).
3.) Mayric's (1320 Macareag Bldg, Espana, Manila) Apparently, just across from the University of Santa Tomas.
4.) 70s Bistro (46 Anonas St, Project 2, Quezon City)
5.) My Bro's Mustache (68 Sct. Tuazon, corner Sct Manrinan, Quezon City)
6.) Conspiracy Garden Cafe (59 Visayas Ave, QC)
7.) RJ Bar (28 Jupiter Street, Belair Village, Makati)
8.) Hobbit House (1801 Mabini Street, Malate) This IS a must see bar in Manila for the reason that will be apparent as soon as you enter!
9.) The Embassy (The Fort, Taguig) Is this really what constitutes a "bar?" Makes me wonder about the author.
10.) Nuvo: (Greenbelt, Makati) Another curious pick and one that really puzzles me about the autheor's choices. Oh, well, to each his own.
