As a hands-on mom, I spend most of my time taking care of my family’s needs. Although I am not short on R&R activities with my husband and kids, there are simply moments when I need to chill-out with friends. At this day and age, moms shouldn’t feel guilty about squeezing in some ‘Me Time” on a regular basis. This is because “Me Time” is essential in having a healthy and well-balanced life. For a refreshing chill-out night venue, you and your friends can check out The Penthouse 8747.
The Philippine Tattler has The Penthouse 8747 in their list of the best bars and lounges in the Philippines. Located at the top of Lepanto Bldg. in Makati City, this posh lounge is a popular destination for cocktails and nightcaps. But as I recently discovered, this penthouse is also great for dining, dating and hanging out with friends. The place welcomes you with positive vibes through its stylish Gatsby inspired interiors and friendly staff. I appreciate the relaxing and luxurious ambiance created by the combination of gold and black accents, lighting, and furnishings. But the best décor in the house is the gorgeous view of the Makati skyscape. Bright lights from skyscrapers against the night sky is one of the best views in town. Pick a table near the al fresco area to enjoy both the interiors and skyline view.
Aside from the ambiance, guests can also enjoy great tasting meals at reasonable prices. You can take your pick among a variety of dishes including steaks, pizza, pasta, and burgers to name a few. I got to try the Salmon Burger which is both delicious and interesting with its green bun and the combination of cream cheese, honey-mustard, and buffalo sauce. The Crispy Stuffed Chicken Wings, Penthouse Crab Cakes, and Shrimp Pesto Fusili are also worth a try. You can pair these dishes with a variety of drinks from their beverage selection including wines, champagne, and cocktails. Or take an after dinner sip while lounging at the al fresco area with your favourite drink. Better yet, why not try the Jellous Lover, a popular drink at The Penthouse. It’s a combination of sparkling wine and champagne with a wine infused jelly sitting at the bottom.
There’s no question about it, we had a great time at The Penthouse 8747. It’s a perfect place to reward yourself with a relaxing dinner at the end of a busy work week. It doesn’t matter if you go there with a date, with your BFFs, or a group of workmates, you and your friends can find a spot that you can enjoy at The Penthouse. This night-out venue is open Monday-Thursday from 4pm to 1am, and Fridays and Saturdays from 4pm to 2am.
