If you have any inputs on where I can find a really happening nightlife area in PH, please let me know... I'm talking about Bars, Clubs, Strip clubs (if any...), and any of the nightlife you can think of!

In Metro Manila

1. MALATE- CULTURAL, supposedly more bohemian. more casual with some clubs ranging from affordable to a bit expensive. But I think they are all cheap, but can be very classy. ORASA ST. is the gay scene, but straight girls go there
too. If you are straight, stick to NAKPIL ST. I DONT KNOW IF MANILA is as fan with the new mayor. But MALATE is the official party place.

2. The posh and exclusive areas: THE FORT @ the city of FORT BONIFACIO, ROCKWELL and other I don't go to!

3. GREENBELT 4 or 3 has nice, but I assume pricey clubs.

4. MAKATI is the business district, so you can find lots of things to do at night there.

5. QUEZON CITY, you can go to LIBIS... or EASTWOOD, just tell your cab.

I think that is your MANILA NIGHT LIFE 101.

Unless you are looking for a patpong or Khaosan road? Ask and somebody might answer

wait you ask strip clubs? I think we have the best in Asia. That is one of the few things I can be proud of.
But I am not going to give you street names.

Just stay within Metro Manila and you'll get all sorts of night life. #1 basically sorted them out for you. You can also head out to the islands for other sorts of night life. There's Puerto Galera, Boracay, Cebu, and even Davao.

When are you coming in?

to add on Swept Away's list...

in Quezon City.... you can drop by Timog Avenue.. there are a lot of bars and clubs there... along Quezon Avenue there are high profile men's clubs there like the Pegasus...

in Makati City... the red light district is near the corner of Makati Avenue and Kalayaan Ave... though I'm not sure if there are strip clubs there.. yup the Greenbelt area is a posh site for a night life same as The Fort Strip in Global City in Taguig...

stripping is illegal in the Philippines so if there are.. they're usually not publicized much.. but there are in smaller corners of the metro...

We don't have strip clubs! We have go go bars, but we don't call them go go bars. We refer to it as night club (for the straight establishments). Cheap go go places do get raided occasionally, for the media to have a story. So skip the tiny alleys or streets for such carnal activities.

These club exist, but we are very discrete and almost hypocritical. Just follow your instincts!
