Once at PlayTaste and the thirst for board game adventures becomes all too real, you can also order a variety of finger food and refreshments available at the in-house bar. They’ve got a bunch of addictive treats, such as poptails (a fusion of popsicles and cocktails); though you can also keep it cool with a simple glass of whiskey or take your pick from an assortment of mixed drinks.

PlayTaste is set to be a rallying point for gamers everywhere with weekly events and gatherings already planned for the Philippine gaming community. In the pipeline are NDA Wednesdays, where customers get to play unreleased games, games in beta-testing stage, and newly-released games. To honor its namesake, though, you will not be allowed to share details about your experience on social media.
