View the Ortigas Skyline at Sky High Bar

Who wouldn’t love skylines? Of course, acrophobics. But that aside, if you are in Pasig who wants some good wine and a romantic skyline view, Sky High Bar may just be a fitting place for you.

Directions

For Rizalenos, ride any Crossing Ilalim jeepneys and tell the driver to drop you off at Kapitolyo. Cross the pedestrian lane toward Ministop and Shakeys and look for the line of green tricycles. Tell the driver to drop you at Ace Water Spa (Php 28). It’s on the twenty-first floor. No need for a card. You may also opt to use Google Maps and walk if you want to save money.

Place

I couldn’t say much about the place except that it is one of those bars where you could enjoy Ortigas skyline. For picture-taking purposes, maybe 5:30 p.m. would be a perfect time to go, just in time for the pink and orange sky. Unfortunately, it’s not a 360-degree view anymore because of a newly constructed building higher than the Ace Hotel building.

Food

We ordered Southern Fried Chicken (Php 360), Sizzling Osso Buco (Php 390), and I had Strawberry Blossom (Php 165) for my drink. I enjoyed their southern fried chicken, especially the fries that came along with it (9/10). Their sizzling osso buco was very, very tender as if it was cooked in a pressure cooker in a day. We loved it so much (9/10).

Beware of the strawberry blossom though (9/10). Since it has a mix of gin and vodka, my god, by all means, order this and be tipsy in a few gulps (or maybe because I don’t drink beer anymore).

Wicked Dogs

Yep, here’s the famous wall sign: “We serve beer colder and cheaper than your ex.” Wicked Dogs is located in Poblacion, Makati, near the famous Filling Station Bar Cafe. For people who would like to go here, maybe for those who’d like to forget their exes, I recommend their Turbo (Php 160, if I’m not mistaken). It will definitely, and literally, take your breath away.

We ordered nachos (Php 190.00) and bacon cheese fries (Php 155.00, not in the picture). Mine was Tequila Sunrise, which almost tasted like four seasons but not my favorite TS (Php 130.00). My friends ordered One Dark Knight (Php 145), which got her easily, and Amaretto Sour (Php 150.00) that had cherry on it, which my friendly liked.

I wasn’t satisfied yet, so we ordered a Turbo (Php 180.00) for each of us. It is now one of my favorites, next to the Tequila Sunrise that I ordered in Antipolo.

I’m definitely going back here, maybe with a video.

World Music Room KTV

World Music Room KTV is a karaoke hub in Promenade, Greenhills. For Php 88.00, you’d get an hour to sing (minimum of three, so you’ll have to pay for the other two if you go alone).

Their walls are painted with famous singers and bands, including Bob Marley, Avril Lavigne, and The Backstreet Boys. They’re list is updated with trending songs, though some of my all-time favorite karaoke songs (Mr. Brightside by The Killers and Director’s Cut by Kamikazee) are missing.
