Apartel, a new super-group formed by legendary Eraserheads front man and songwriter Ely Buendia, alongside co-conspirator and founder, Gnash/DRT front-man, and songwriter Jay Ortega has just launched their first ever single entitled “Is It Hip?”
Launching the music video and the band’s new sexy sound at Victoria Court, Manila’s sexiest drive-in hotel, the two brands fit each other like a glove. Mix in alcohol and, oh boy, we are in for a treat!
This one-of-a-kind event infuses sight, sound and taste, which is distinctly the Victoria Court way. The Victoria Court Malate Party Wing was transformed into an intimate concert area for Apartel’s guests where they can eat, drink and dance the night away.
Why Victoria Court and Apartel? It’s a marriage made in LOVERS HEAVEN!! Apartel’s music in layman’s terms is all about love, love making, and late night calls. Something Victoria Court has always owned and been known for. Apartel’s music is classy and a definite cut above the rest…what with a full horn section, percussion, back up singers, the core band, and the 2 commanding front men, Ely and Jay performing in full on suits.
It’s something the local music scene has not experienced before. Victoria Court has always been regarded as a pioneering place where people with a sense of class gravitate to and frequent and could very well be Apartel’s home.
Key words that lock in Apartel and Victoria Court – check in, trip out. Both brands are alluring, sensual, funky, and groovy…once you check in, you’re sure to trip out.
