LOOK: There’s a Secret Plaza in BGC You Should Check Out!

Have you heard of Arya Plaza yet? Affectionately called “BGC’s best kept secret” by its visitors, Arya Plaza is the next place for all you foodies to check out. Not just an area filled with several great restaurants to choose from, it is also an artfully structured plaza that makes use of nature to create an al fresco (or al FRESHco, as I like to call it! 😉 experience to all who enter.

The intriguing Arya Plaza is situated right next to ArthaLand’s Arya Residences in Bonifacio Global City, providing a haven for Arya residences and BGC visitors alike.

Arguably the coolest fact about Arya Plaza (pun intended) is that it has been engineered to make use of the natural wind flow around Arya to bring in a constant breeze all throughout the Plaza at every hour of everyday! It has an imposing canopy made out of a special insulating material called ETFE (ethylene tetrafluoroethylene) that helps regulate the temperature within the area.

This is what the Arya Plaza fountains look like.

Upon stepping into the Plaza, you’ll notice that there are strategically placed posts and trees all around you to facilitate wind flow without blocking it. There are also some mini water fountains spouting from the ground, which will make you feel like you’re stepping among fresh springs in nature. All of the restaurants in the Plaza also offer outdoor seating. The total effect? A unique and crisp dining experience within the city.

The Plaza also has several great restaurants to choose from! First, there’s Savage, a restaurant that goes back to cooking the old-fashioned way: through grilling. Some of their best dishes include devilled eggs, grilled barramundi and pork belly.
