Makati, even though it is located near the capital of Philippines, Manila, is not as gay-friendly as it could be. Makati has a high gay acceptance and people are polite as long as you do not cross the line of public behaviour. The culture is still simmering in toxic masculinity and conservative beliefs, so any express of affection may lead to troubles. Nevertheless, many places are available for you and your partner to get intimate or to meet new interesting people and get spunky.
Makati is considered to be the 1st class highly urbanised city, but do not be fooled. It is also a cultural and entertainment hub with many underground spots to delight yourself, while it is notable for its exceptional multicultural lifestyle too. Best hotspots to spend a pleasant night-out are Club Mwah, a Broadway vibe and world class performances and Nectar Night Club which is crowded on the weekends by local LGBTQ crowds with its modern interior, themed parties, guest DJ’s and fancy go-go dancers. Also be sure to visit 0-Bar for unforgettable experience as the drag performances are phenomenal.
If you are interested in rejuvenating your body as well as your spirit, then visiting Club Bath Philippines the oldest gay bathhouse in Asia, will help you achieve it. Beyond this, every other spa facility is considered gay-friendly but not exclusively gay. The Artisen Spa provides therapeutical massages combined with the use of natural and traditional oils, while Om Spa offers upgraded wellness facilities for the needy ones. Holidays in Philippines are not considered holidays unless you leave yourself in the care of specialists massagers and experience first hand the refreshing effects.
Places like Rizal Stadium and CCP are some of the cruising spots for locals and travellers to savour their time together. Greenbelt Cinemas, Glorietta Mall and Ayala Avenue also offer some spicy cruising time with interesting people.
