Friday July 13th, 2018 • By njavan

Just a stone’s throw away from Makati’s central business district, lifestyle and shopping complexes, posh 5-star hotels, and urban residences lies Poblacion – now a not-so-hidden gem for both locals, expats, and tourists looking for hip and fun spots to hang out.

Once embedded in Makati’s busy and controversial district, Poblacion has since emerged from the shadows and shone to to be the city’s newest and brightest attraction, with a colorful mix of hole-in-the-wall eateries, inviting watering holes, as well as hip condotels and apartelles, each with their own distinct brand and personality.

Popular restaurants and and bars include: Polilya, Oto, Tambai, and Taqueria Seta

While flavorful local cuisine, inventive cocktails, and artsy establishments line the streets of Poblacion, there are other cultural and curious attractions showing a different side of this neighborhood you shouldn’t miss!

Saints Peter and Paul Parish

Founded in 1620 and is considered to be one of the oldest churches in the Philippines. Not too large and not too grand, the Saints Peter and Paul Parish lies in close proximity to local schools and establishments, providing residents nearby a sanctuary.

Address: 5539 D.M. Rivera, Makati City, 1210 Metro Manila, Philippines

Kapwa Studio


“Kapwa,” strongly related to the Filipino word “fellow,” reflects the core value of togetherness this barbershop salon strives to deliver through their craft. Expect the style and mastery of local barbers and stylists shine through as they work literally hand-in-hand to uplift fellow men by giving them sleek and refreshed looks.

Address: 5059-A P. Burgos, Poblacion, Makati City, Metro Manila, Philippines

Reviews

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

    Shan D., Tripadvisor

  • “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!”

    Matthew B., Tripadvisor

  • “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.”

  • 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.
