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.
