“Pura Vida: A Taste of Costa Rica and Reggae Culture in Manila The very moment you open Pura Vida’s door, it feels like you’ve just left the city and instantly gone to the beach. The old house in this once quiet neighborhood, much of it retained and just slightly refurbished, feels just right the perfect home for what Pura Vida stands for. The wooden stairs and walls are splashed with the red, green, and yellow paint and plastered with everything Bob Marley; big wooden beach chairs in the balcony easily feel like lazy afternoons on the beach; and rope swings in the bar with a boat-shaped shelf make this lounge a sweet escape from city life.”

“Ian Paredies’ bahay ng engkanto for his Engkanto Brewery craft beer is one of Poblacion’s hippest night spots for good reason. There’s the moody lighting, trendy neon signs, and mismatched furniture that just exudes a vibe of effortless cool. Then there’s the all-too-drinkable draft beer on tap, and beer-based cocktails that go down so smoothly yet hide an all-too-powerful punch. Plus, the tasty, and definitely-not-your-usual bar chow by Chef Luis de Terry (whose family owns Terry’s) are sure to be unforgettable even on the morning after. One thing’s for sure: You shouldn’t leave Poblacion without dropping by Polilya on your next night out. **** Polilya is at 5658 Don Pedro Street, Poblacion”
