Yes, Valentine’s Day is all about hearts, roses, and romantic dates. But if you’re single on Feb. 14, don’t fret, as you too can join in on the festivities. The day is all about love after all, so why not celebrate it with your fellow single friends? Think of going out together as a great “thank you” gift to friends who will always have your back.
Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to visit the Scout Area in Quezon City. The whole place offers an interesting choice of dining places, plus more. Go Hotels offers some recommendations on where you and your barkada can celebrate V-Day 2018.
Go on a staycation with the barkada
Go Hotels recommends spending the night at their branch located in Timog Ave. It has the same world-class facilities the brand is known for: clean and clutter-free rooms, comfy ambiance, comfortable beds, hot & cold showers, and free WIFI. Your barkada can book up to five rooms, and the earlier you reserve them, the more chances of availing the lowest possible rate. The hotel also offers a spa service provided by Venus Touch Spa, a perfect way to treat your body after a whole evening of partying.
“Our Timog Ave. branch is located right in the middle of Scout area, making it perfect for those who wish to go food-tripping or bar-hopping. Then, cap it off by experiencing world-class, friendly service and utmost comfort and care at Go Hotels,” said JJ Montinola, assistant vice president of Roxaco–Vanguard Hotel Corporation (RVHC).
Happy hearts, happy tummies
Mario’s at Tomas Morato for example is one such restaurant that offers an unforgettable culinary experience. Splurge on a three-course meal and choose among a variety of entrées like their Twin Tournados of Tenderloin Steak Duo with Béarnaise and Mushroom Sauce, or Salmon Fillet with Roasted Garlic and Charbroiled Lamb Chop with Port Mint Sauce, or Rib Eye and Prawn Thermidor. For drinks, they have a wide assortment of wine, vodka, rum, tequila, and beer.
For a livelier atmosphere, why not get a good laugh at the famous Zirkoh Bar in Timog? A comedy bar is just the right place to let all the sawi feelings subside, while enjoying some grub, too. Comedians making fun of heartbreak and other things romantic will leave everyone less upset about the clichés of Valentine’s.
Competitive singles can choose to go Ludo’s Boardgame Bar & Café at Sct. Torillo Street, a perfect place for the whole gang. Just order some food and drinks and all the board games are yours for the taking. Try themed cocktails, inspired by shows and movies such as ‘Doctor Who’ and ‘Star Wars’ and dig in into their Chicken Wings, Beef Salpicao, Super Nachos, and their famous Vegetable or Cheese Gyoza.
KTV bar Music Match in Tomas Morato is a top choice for those who want to sing their hearts out on Valentine’s Day. Prepare your Most Requested Song list, grab the microphone, and sing the night away. Choose from a variety of food and drinks from their barkada packages, which include some of our favorite dishes such as sisig, chicken wings, and liempo. Large groups need not worry as Music Match has rooms that can fit up to 20 people.
And last but not the least, for those who look to party, Guilly’s Island in Tomas Morato is there for you. One of the longest running nightclubs in Metro Manila, it is known for the excellent crowd, food and music. Who knows? Maybe some in your barkada might find their one true love here.
