Here are some of the best gimmick places I've been to:
Bistro Bar in Palanca Makati - I've been here a couple of times nung nagtatrabaho pa ko sa pinas. Dito madalas pumunta yung mga coworkers ko kapag gusto nila mag-unwind at magrelax after office. The place is really cozy, mejo smaller than those bars frequented by lots of people.
Red box - eto yung madalas na ginagawa namin ng friends ko - videoke!
The place is nice and relaxing. Mejo pricey pero ok na din kasi maganda yung place, and ang songs updated. Last time I went here (which was years ago, hehe), sa charge nila per person, may kasama na yun na 2 drinks yata. not sure now. If you are here in Malaysia, meron din dito Red box and green box(di pa ko nakakapunta dito - not sure kung purely videoke to or resto). both are located in Sunway pyramid. May redbox din sa KL Pavilion
IO KTV - located in Jupiter st, Makati. OK din tong place na to, mas mura kesa red box.
Museum Cafe, Greenbelt - cozy place, very relaxing, good food also. since high end sha, mejo pricey
Max Brenner - I love chocolates kaya kasama to sa list ko. ok din ang place kasi shempre you can have a conversation with friends in a very relaxing ambiance and shempre cozy ulit. hehe
B.R.A.D bar near roxas blvd - di ko alam tawag sa exact place. basta malapit sha roxas. The name of the bar stands for Bond, Relax, and Dine - once pa lang kami nakapunta dito but we liked the place kasi outside the main place, they have an elevated place tapos low table and instead of chairs, they have bean bags! Isn't that cool?
plus, the prices are affordable.
Starbucks - This is actually my favorite place to hangout. if I want to read a book, relax, or meet up with friends for a chat or catching up. I think they have the best fraps ever. Too bad wala na yung Rhumba frap.
Circles - Shangri-la Makati - I love this place. Super sarap ng food dito! Mejo nasa expensive side sha. But I think if you are going there with someone special, ok na(mas ok kung sagot nya! hehehehehe). pero sulit ang food.
Eto muna for now.
