The Gilarmi Lounge

Notice to the public: The Gilarmi Lounge reopens on 11 November 2020, with safety measures in place to keep guests safe and comfortable.

Opening hours: Tuesdays to Sundays from 3:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Advance reservations are recommended.

With a laid-back sophistication, the hotel’s lobby lounge pays homage to the historic Gilarmi Apartments, Asia’s first serviced apartments which once stood where the hotel now rises.

A signature of the Gilarmi Lounge, the Gin Library is Manila’s favorite spot for a gin and tonic. With over 60 different gins from around the world on rotation, and at least 40 on the shelves at any given time, the Gin Library has the best curated gin list in Makati. From classic favorites such as Tanqueray 10, to more obscure and small batch gins such as the Lakes Gin, order up your G&T with your favorite tonic – of which, in Gilarmi, there are many – or talk to the bartenders and servers for their recommendations on which concoction to try next.

The Gilarmi Lounge also serves up Filipino pub fare: the sisig is a classic favorite, and the unusual yet intriguing Gilarmi Pizza, made with garlic longganisa (a salty-sweet pork sausage) and salted egg, has a cult following of its own.

  • “It feels like home! Truly a service with a heart .. Keep it up!”

  • “Stayed at the Discovery Primea Makati for two nights in May in their Two Bedroom Primea Suite. This is truly an above and beyond hotel which after its soft launch I would be surprised doesn’t get fully booked straight away! Will now always make the Discovery Primea my hotel choice in Manila. Will be back next year!”

  • “I have stayed at many hotels in the City and have by far enjoyed this stay the most. From the moment I arrived I was greeted by warm and friendly staff who were very accommodating. The stand out for me is the apartment style facilities. A home away from home. Spacious rooms and modern appliances with a vast array of Chef inspired menu options. Will be back soon.”

    Stephen W., Tripadvisor

  • “A truly exceptional hotel. Very friendly and accomodating personnel, luscious food to die for, exceptional facilities with an exceptional view of BGC, Makati and Ortigas Skyline, and top notch accessibility. We’ll be back for sure.”

    Rivzkaydet, Tripadvisor

  • Great ambiance, service and food. From the lobby to our room, the experience was beyond words could describe. Kudos especially to housekeeping for the upkeep of the room. I would definitely recommend this hotel chain to my family and friends.
