TODAY, the streets of Cebu are packed with locals and tourists with everyone in a festive mood as we celebrate the biggest and grandest festival in the Queen City of the South. It’s one gleeful and colorful day with the Sinulog 2019 Grand Parade kicking things off and the Grand Fireworks Display ending a day of festivities with a spectacular show. If you’re still on a Sinulog high and in a celebratory mood after a whole day of revelry under the sun, check these six best hangout spots for some post-Sinulog fun.
Ibiza Beach Club
Take the festival fun to the shores of Mactan at Ibiza Beach Club where there’s upbeat music, scrumptious food and entertaining shows. It’s the ultimate party place inspired by the party capital of the world, Ibiza. Ibiza also boasts of its majestic view of the ocean and the feeling that there’s no tomorrow as you drink and dance the night away.
You’ve probably sung “Pit Señor” more than once today to greet everyone on the streets. If you’re still in the mood to sing or shout your heart out once more, head over to Open Mic and experience quality sound system within a stylish setting. The music lounge also serves a wide selection of food to instantly satisfy cravings while offering a cozy environment that makes for a chill hangout spot.
A day of merrymaking can mean you’ve down a lot of booze in your system. It’s best to slow things down a little and drain all the alcohol with a bowl of Vcnte Batchoy in Ibabao, Mandaue City. A bowl or two is guaranteed to bring you back to sobriety. After indulging enough bowls of their flavorful batchoy, you’re now good to continue with what’s left of the Sinulog revelry.
Distillery can still make parties happen with their great music and an array of liquor selection from different parts of the world that are relatively affordable. You can indulge and get your groove on when you still want more of those whiskeys, beers and spirits even on the night after Sinulog.
Morals and Malice
If you’re looking for a place to chill that offers their patrons a different kind of entertainment, Morals and Malice is that kind of place for you. There’s an endless fun and promise of a great time with their interesting concept of morally exciting offerings to malicious concoctions.
Blu Bar & Grill offers a fine balance of good food and great ambiance with a magnificent view of Cebu City during the night. It’s a refreshing change of scenery after a day of walking on busy and crowded streets. This best roof deck hangout is the perfect spot to unwind away from the city.
