181 R&B: The Perfect Place to Chill in Baguio City

181 R&B: The Perfect Place to Chill in Baguio City

I’ve been staying in Manila for quite a while due to the production of my prank show. So I decided to visit my folks in Baguio, get away from the chaos of Manila, and breathe some fresh air. When I got there, all of my friends were inviting me to chill out at this place, so even though I have a busy schedule, I decided to check the place out.

181 Restaurant and Bar, or 181 R&B, is located at #45 Northdrive st. Engineer’s Hill, Baguio City. The place itself has “relax” written all over it.

The owners graduated in UP Fine Arts, so the walls have soothing artworks on them. The architecture and the decoration of the place is very well-structured and brings out a happy kind of energy.

Its location is near Session road, but is still hidden from the noise and rumble of the business district.

According to the owners, they designed 181 R&B to be their personal chill-out place. However, instead of using it for their mere personal use, why not share the fun with the people of Baguio?

Now, to the fun part, their bestsellers:

181 R&B is very proud of their steaks. I asked for a medium rare sirloin cut, and they did not disappoint. The house blended gravy complements the steak very well. I am a “steak guy”, and I can say that their steaks are quite good. I recommend this one 100%!
