Parañaque Pub Crawl: Eat, Drink, and Be Merry at These 10 Joints

by Julianne Suazo

With its laid-back atmosphere and bevy of establishments, Parañaque manages to be two seemingly opposite things simultaneously: low-key but fun; chill but festive.

Right along the bustling streets lined with restaurants, bars, and everything else in between, these spots light up the southern sky, inviting you in for a drink or two. Make your Parañaque pub crawl one to remember by hitting as many of these places as you can, with your best partners-in-crime in tow.

1. Tas Roofdeck

With a view overlooking the colorful streets of Parañaque, Tas Roofdeck has an outdoor area where you can enjoy a few glasses of their irresistible Signature Sangria. The heart and soul of this barbecue-inspired rooftop bar's menu are their special wraps: you can choose your base from a variety of classic pizza flavors, then stuff it with skewers such as chicken teriyaki, steak salpicao, or liempo bacon.

2. Vapor Hookah Lounge

Vapor is one of the long-standing places to drink in Parañaque and one of the classic go-to’s for people in the south whenever they find themselves wracking their brains for a hangout spot. On a regular night, you can expect the crowd to be relatively young, all eager to enjoy themselves. With a few rounds of beer pong to get you buzzed, you’ll feel at ease in no time. Try the Choco Mud Slide to get your dessert and drink in one.

3. Tides

For a chill al fresco drinking area, Tides is easily your best bet. With several types of mixed drinks (you'll love the Frozen Lime Margarita!) and bar chow on the menu, you’ll easily understand why it’s been around the neighborhood for a long time, even venturing out to different corners of the metro. They usually have a ton of promos and events so make sure to check those out to make the most of your visit.

4. Central

This bar is one of the OG favorites of the south night scene. You’ll find yourself heading to Central when you’re in the mood to have your usual staples in a familiar setting. Good ol’ dishes for the tipsy are readily available depending on your cravings—tapa sisig, nachos, and a ton of other platters of greasy goodness for you and your friends to share. Make the BADgirl your poison of choice.

5. Rue Bourbon

A great choice for people with a more adventurous approach to alcohol, Rue Bourbon’s beverage selection includes salted caramel beer and Speculoos beer that can either come in a gigantic beer glass or a small barrel with a tap, depending on your preference, taste, and how much alcohol you’re hoping to consume.

6. TMBR Gastro Pub

On the more spacious side of the pub scene in Parañaque is TMBR. With two floors and a cabin vibe, this bar has a cozy ambience that will feel like home. The sinfully crisp Potato Skin Nachos and cheekily named Drunken Chicken are must-tries in between sips of the infamous Aguirre Sling.

7. Papi Chulo's

When you’re in the mood for some Mexican grub on your night out, Papi Chulo's is your best bet. Drinking and dancing the night away has never seemed more tempting than when it’s fueled by sumptuous burritos and other fusion Mexican dishes. Let’s be real—when the alcohol (you'll want to chug all of the Pineapple Margaritas, but try to go easy on 'em) sinks in, is there anything that sounds more appetizing than a plate of chicharon tacos?

8. Imbiss Manila

Tucked away in Aguirre Avenue is this German gastropub, another popular choice for the younger audience. This trendy joint really comes alive at night, so be prepared for blasting music and an enthusiastic crowd. Their ample selection of beers, cocktails, and spirits is perfect for those who crave variety. Try the Amaretto Sour, a classic with a twist.

9. Pig and Whistle Sports Grill

Usually frequented by both locals and the expat community, this classic bar draws you in with the friendly and welcoming vibe, but keeps you hooked with the wide variety of mixed cuisines that make up their menu. Highly recommended for big groups looking to have a good time over generous gulps of Fuller's London Pride, delicious grub, and great sports conversations all night long.

10. Mulligan's

If you’re on a night out but are secretly hoping to catch your favorite sports team's game on television, there’s no better place to be than Irish pub Mulligan's. Imagine this: major sporting events on TV, a chill crowd and vibe, and a hot serving of buffalo wings washed down with some trusty draft beer—components of an ideal night for those who work hard and play harder.
