As you step in Archie’s Bespoke Sports Grill and Bar, you are greeted by industrial-themed interiors. Brick walls and sports posters on the wall give off a laid-back vibe. If you think sports bars are for titos, think again!
Here in Archie’s Bespoke Sports Grill and Bar, everyone is welcome, and there is a good reason for that. According to the owners, they want to make Archie’s a place for families and friends to get together and bond over good food and good drinks. We rounded up some of our personal favorites one can never leave Archie’s without having:
Sisig paired with a lot of cheese will surely leave you wanting for more.
Gambas paired with Chorizo Rice
Not a seafood fan? I know what will make you change your mind!
Barbequed pork ribs paired with crispy noodles and topped with bagnet
From the word “bespoke,” Archie’s is open to tweaking and customizing dishes such as adding flavors to suit the customer’s taste.
Good food and good company must certainly be accompanied with some drinks. Archie’s believes that lemons are for lemonades, but calamansi is for iced tea. Introducing the House Blend Calamantea, which is Archie’s take on iced tea. It is more refreshing and has a milder taste and can be easily paired with food. The best part about it is that you won’t feel grainy sugar on your tongue with every sip.
For those who just want to have some chill beer or a glass of cocktail, this place is perfect for you. Archie’s boasts about using craft beer on their cocktails instead of water. This means…more alcohol for you!
This cocktail, Gin Basil Smash, contains gin and craft beer topped with basil. You first taste the bitterness, then the sweetness, and lastly, the alcohol.
If you’re looking for something stronger, the alternative would be Gin Cucumber Smash.
For the adventurous soul, try the Frozen Margarita in bubble gum flavor.
These are just some reasons why Archie’s is a must-visit. When you do, watch out for the huge graffiti on the wall by the entrance and try your hand at shooting some basketballs. You might even bump into local bands playing a set, or even better, challenge your friends in a karaoke battle at Archie’s KTV room. You now know where to set your next weekend hang-out at!
