Metro Manila · Leisure Ortigas
For those living and working in the EDSA-Ortigas Hotspot but also everyone else, Leisure Ortigas offers great opportunities to relax and enjoy an evening out. At the back of the international offices, malls and banks that are located in Ortigas lies the area called ‘Metrowalk’.
Metrowalk is a series of bars and restaurants that invites Megacitizens to enjoy a traditional Filipino meal and swallow it down with a local beer in a rather cozy atmosphere. Since a lot of people come here to drink, listen to music and enjoy the night, the area gets more vibrant with each hour that passes after the sun has set.
The other side of Metrowalk includes a list of shops one can go to during the day. You will find a lot of things on that side of the street - from clothing to fine wines and liquors, among other things. This makes taking a stroll worthwhile before hitting the restaurants and bars.
One last thing that is common knowledge about the ‘Metrowalk Commercial Center’ is its the Poker establishment. A lot of people – local and international – go to Metrowalk to mess with the best and lose/win like the rest! If you are up for some games of poker in an appealing atmosphere, this is your place for a night out.
Being a part of the Ortigas business district, Metrowalk is a good destination for foreigners and locals alike. If you are planning to stay in the area, there are a number of hotels you can book a stay at.
