I was a bit skeptical before arriving at the bar. I'm not really a fan of those places where "foreigners hang-out" (like Cafe Havana in Greenbelt, Makati).
But the place was surprisingly nice -- without that dodgy feeling. Chill place with interesting decor. Foreigners tend to hang-out at the alfresco section outside while locals hangout inside where there is air-conditioning.
We ordered either the 1pc sausage meal that came with yummy sides (5) and the half-pounder burger with fries. Both meals are great, especially with beer and good conversation among friends :) They serve draft beer and below-zero local beers :D
I would definitely come back here

I like this place because they have a pool table. .cuz i love to play billiards even though im always loosing. .and also they have a live band, and u will enjoy their music. .
They have a BBQ and you can get a 16oz. steak, if you fancy that.
This is a bikers place and you will have a chance to admire a selection of Harley-Davidsons, or when you go to the restroom you can admire many posters and quotes on the walls....

The grilled steaks here are great value for money. My eife also enjoyed the grilled shrimp meal. The place can be a bit loud at times and is a bit rustic but the food is excellent and one of the best value for meal locations you can find in Makati!

This is a good bar in Manila which we sought out specifically to watch the Rugby 6 nations matchs. We didnt try the food but other peoples food looked good. Lots of interesting bikes/tshirts/people to see and the atmosphere was really good. I have marked down the service because we thought it was kind of surly - perhaps the staff werent interested in us because we were not locals or regulars or bikers.

Handle Bar is kind of hidden away on Polaris St just a block from the entertainment district. It is the club house of the Mad Dog motorcycle club, so there is always a good chance you will see some amazing bikes parked out front. They serve some of the best steaks here in town, as well as a few local cuisine choice like adobo. The have lunch specials, a week day happy hour beginning at 9pm and wen-fri the feature some of the best local bands!

The live music is my favorite part of this joint, most of the bands play classic rock & roll and are very talented! See some of the pictures I have uploaded :) This place looks and feels like the biker joints back in the states. Great place to get stuffed have a few drinks, play pool or watch some sports on one of the many TV's in the place. You can spend an hour easily just looking at all of the cool decor hanging on the walls ceilings and the classic scooters parked inside the restro.

If your going to be in Makati for a while I recommend dropping by and if it is a Wednesday, Thursday or Friday evening it is a Must for any fan of Rock & Roll!
