Bubba Gump in Greenbelt 3 has a great ambiance to get the drinks flowing. The restaurant literally looks like a fisherman’s cabin, that said in a good way. The place is warmly lit and there are stools at the counter and tables for bigger groups. The seafood here if renowned world wide. But another reason why this place is quite popular is because of their happy hour deal. Every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays from 5pm to 8pm customers can drink all the beers, margaritas and wines they want. It costs 299 php to drink bottomless beers and margaritas while for 499 php gets customers unlimited red or white wine. The drinks match perfectly with their shrimp dishes.
Guilly’s Island in Tomas Morato is another popular drinking spot. The reason being cheap beer when happy hour comes. The restaurant is tightly during dinner onwards and is advisable to try and get a seat before that. Everyday from 5:30pm to 10pm, local beers are 50% off. That is a great deal for a company looking to drink the night away. The regular price of beer is usually around 70 php. During happy hour they are more affordable at 35 php. TO complement the drinking session, Guilly’s serves affordable beer matching snacks such as chicken sisig, lechon kawali, crispy pata and lechon baka ribs.
With a name like Watering Hole Restobar it automatically demands a place in this list of restaurants. This restobar is located Shangri-La Plaza Mall carpark. A bit out of the way but definitely perfect to give it a different kind of vibe. A casual dining restaurant, it caters to office workers around the Ortigas area. Plus this place is usually open 24 hours. Happy hours start either 3pm to 7pm and 3am to 11am. A bit unusual but makes perfect coincidence for call center agents. During these times, beers go for 30 php a bottle. They also offer buffet and bands to get the people singing.
Happy hours are much appreciated by loyal customers. They make their favorite drinking spots somewhat their getaway or base central where they can unwind and enjoy drinks along with good food. A list of restaurants that provide happy hours are very much well received. This places get packed pretty tight after work usually the whole week round.
