Food is fun, but it’s even more fun when you’re sitting in a restaurant with a theme. What makes it the most fun? When you love the theme with all your heart. Here are 17 fun themes we have found in Manila that we absolutely love and think you might want to check out if you love the theme behind it, too! 🙂


17 Fun Restaurant Themes for You to Enjoy in Manila


17. Basketball

Love basketball? NBA Cafe Manila is the first sports bar and restaurant in Manila that caters specifically to basketball fans, making it the perfect place to be to watch and even re-watch NBA games while enjoying great company, scrumptious food and delicious drinks at the same time.


Aside from getting to watch the games at NBA Cafe, you can also take a look at larger than life NBA displays, unique NBA memorabilia and signed jerseys and balls of your favorite players. Read our full review of the NBA Cafe here. If you love the PBA, too, we heard a PBA cafe will be opening soon, too. 😉


16. Ukuleles

Whether you are a die-hard fan of ukuleles, are interested in learning how to play the ukulele, know someone who plays the ukulele, or simply want to eat, relax, bond and have fun, Uke Box Caffe is the place to be.

At Barkin’ Blends, you can enjoy some great quality time with different kinds of dogs. We’ve come to find that it’s the best place to be if your parents won’t let you have one of your own! 😉 You can check out Barkin’ Blends on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/barkinblends?fref=ts


14. Cats

If you are more of a cat lover, on the other hand, you can enjoy the counterpart theme: pretty felines. After the boom in Japan, more and more cat cafes have also started opening here in Manila. This means all you really have to do is find the one nearest you.

We’ve featured Cat Cafe Manila and Uchi No Neko before, but there is also Bengal Brew in Cubao, Velvet Friends Cat Cafe in Blue Bay and Le Cat Coffee Shop in BF Resort. We love them all!


13. Being Upside Down

Talk about creative, this cafe’s theme is all about being upside down and everything there is literally upside down. From the outside itself, you can already feel the theme come alive – so awesome!

And it doesn’t stop there, either. The fun continues inside where everything is upside down, as well! Even celebrities like Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera have visited this place and shown their amusement and appreciation online. You can check out Pan de Amerikana’s Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/PandeAmerikanaOfficial


12. Cars

G’s Cafe was conceptualized to be a hangout place for automotive enthusiasts, which his why they have infused automotives into its interior. The result is so cool: a place spiced up with car parts and road signs as decos. Even some chairs were customized to give its customers a unique experience and, at the same time, comfort.

The best part is that you can get your car repaired next door if need be while you enjoying the food and drinks at G’s Cafe. Read our full review on G’s Cafe here.


11. Jeepneys

Who says cars are the only mode of transportation that deserve a themed cafe? Gerry’s Jeepney is all about our local mode of transportation (and our logo! Hee!): the jeepney. Aside from the colourful jeepneys, you can enjoy authentic Filipino food, including desserts like cheese and avocado ice cream! Talk about Filipino pride!
