Bars, Dining, Places, Hotels in Manila

Probably most of us living or working in Manila or in greater Manila haven't been to some really nice places because perhaps we are not aware those kinds of places exists.. Or these will help someone who's planning to have a date for the first time or nth time, or share a fun and memorable time with his family or friends.
