Before you start getting worked up on your new year’s resolutions, there’s still new year’s eve to look forward to. It’s the one time of year where you can party with abandon, without judgment; that one night where you can celebrate both your awesome past year and your awesome upcoming year in one big blow. And celebrating is always better stylish, and closer to the sky!
Here are 7 high rise bars to greet 2017 at. See y’all tomorrow!
1. Vu’s Lounge
45/F Marco Polo Hotel, Sapphire Road, Ortigas Center, Pasig. | +63 2 7207777
For Ortigas dwellers, there’s the super-convenient roofdeck of Marco Polo Hotel. The staff is fashionable, the walls are lit, the DJ booth is pumping, and oh–there’s a huge outdoor smoking area with a gorgeous view.
2. Skye Lounge
3. Z Hostel Roofdeck
5660 Don Pedro, Makati, 1209 Metro Manila | (02) 856 0851
Not exactly sky-high (it’s only 6 floors up), but that’s not the point. If you want to make new friends on New Year’s Eve, this is the place. The hostel’s roofdeck is a comfy size that gets pretty packed on a busy night, where you can almost slice through the “let’s be friends” vibe in the air. Bonus: if you’ve had one too much to drink, you can always book an affordable room downstairs.
4. 71 Gramercy
71/F The Gramercy, Kalayaan Avenue, Makati | +63 917 8477535
As the name suggests, you’ll be partying 71 floors above the ground–the highest in Metro Manila. Conceptualized by the same guys who brought you Valkyrie, Revel, and Pool Club, 71 gram is the place to be if seeing and being seen is your thing. You’ll be enjoying the company of celebrities and models while enjoying the Makati skyline view.
5. Sky High Bar
21/F Ace Hotels and Suites, Brixton cor Pioneer Sts | +63 2 6281888
For the young and hip (at heart), Sky High greets you with video screens and pumping music the moment you get in. Lounge in the balcony couches for a view of Ortigas and BGC, but the real beauty lies in its open-air dining area.
6. View Deck, City Garden Grand Hotel
32/F City Garden Grand Hotel, Kalayaan cor Makati Avenues, Makati | +63 2 8888181.
If you want to greet 2017 in a bikini, sipping cocktails in a super-chill open-air veranda, View Deck (not its official name) hits the spot. Take a dip while enjoying the Makati skyline view.
7. The Penthouse 8747
1209, 8747 Paseo de Roxas, Makati | 09178010655
Wanna feel like you’re in a Mr. Gatsby party? Greet the new year in style at The Penthouse–its interior was inspired by 1930s Art Deco, with a view of the Makati skyline.
