If you’re going to unwind, you might as well do it somewhere exquisite like Fête Manila.
Brought to you by the same folks behind ABV (Alcohol by Volume), you’re surely in for high-quality cocktails that are worth every centavo of your money. Open from 4pm to 12am, this place doesn’t just cater to the stressed workers of today, but also for anyone who wishes to celebrate and bask in the everyday.
Fête is a term derived from French, meaning party or celebration. Its verb also means to honor or entertain someone lavishly — and it’s exactly what Fête Manila successfully does.
The ambiance is unquestionably classy. Located in Blue Leaf Cosmopolitan, the bar itself may only seat a few number of people, but that’s exactly what makes the place feel so posh–it gives off a “Titas of Manila” vibe. There’s simply no better way to have conversations with friends than to drink cocktails with accompanying soul and R&B tunes playing in the background.
It’ll definitely make everyone feel classy!
What’s best is that despite its premium feel, the drinks offered are fairly priced and affordable compared to most cocktail bars. Treat yourself with meticulously crafted cocktails by world-class mixologists who will only serve the best.
Their cocktails are categorized into four sections, words that are often associated with detailing alcohol: Effervescent, Boozy, Tart, and Bartender’s Signatures. Here are the best-sellers we had:
Moscow Mule (Php 220)
For our Effervescent drink, we had two cocktails which ended up being our top two favorite picks out of all the best-sellers–the Moscow Mule (Php 220) and the Dark and Stormy (Php 250).
Dark and Stormy (Php 250)
We even considered having another round of those two! Effervescent, after all, sets forth to the liveliness of the drink.
Manhattan (Php 280)
For hard drinkers, the Boozy selection is for you. We had Manhattan (Php 280), a combination of whiskey, sweet vermouth, and Angostura bitters.
Whiskey Sour (Php 230)
Those with sharp tastebuds who enjoy acidic drinks might find themselves in the Tart selection: We had the ever classic Margarita (Php 240) and Whiskey Sour (Php 230). The latter even has a nice touch to its presentation!
Touch Me Nut (Php 300)
For Bartender Signatures, we had Touch Me Nut by Lyka (Php 300) which consists of Bulliet Bourbon, Giffard Banane, Frangelico, simple syrup, lemon juice, and egg white.
If you’re not fond of cocktails, fret not. Fête Manila also offers beers and wines per bottle to those who have specific tastes in mind.
So what are you waiting for? Invite your friends to join you be engulfed by these cocktails! Surely you can’t resist being enticed by the photos shown above.
