There are three options on how to watch the FIFA World Cup in the Philippines. The first is to go the nearest sports bar with all your buddies. Most likely, they’ll have unlimited beer promos and other rowdy fans to enjoy the evening with. The second (like what Nico Bolzico did in that viral video taken by Erwan Heussaff last week), is to contain your emotions in a friend’s living room, snacking on chips and violently reacting to every missed goal from your favorite team. Lastly, to sit back and relax in a luxury bar, located at the top floor of one of Manila’s premier 5-star hotels.
Marco Polo Ortigas Manila has just announced that they welcome all sports fans to enjoy football matches this World Cup season at their rooftop bar, Vu’s Sky Bar and Lounge. Located at the 44th floor of the hotel, enjoy the game while taking in a breathtaking view of the Ortigas skyline. Before the Quarter Round begins on July 6 and the Finals scheduled on the 15th (Philippine’s time), book a table at the premium bar. Each patron will receive two complimentary bottles of Heineken beer after paying a door charge of PHP 499.00. Games show live until 1:30 AM.
Vu’s also has a good selection of signature cocktails for those looking to take a break from beer bingeing. For instance, the Old Fashioned, is a classic gentleman’s drink, worthy of an international soccer match. The mojito will keep your energy up, and your body quenched if you choose to sit alfresco. There are even shisha machines for those looking to enjoy the ancient hookah smoking methods during a match.
Bar Chow goes a long way at the lounge, which serves a selection of Filipino, Spanish and Mediterranean favorites. The Crispy Pata is as crunchy as it gets, and is best enjoyed with a below zero beer. Burger sliders will keep you sustained for a night of heavy drinking, while the Salmon Pizza is ideal for munching on during those final nerve-racking minutes of a game. Premium drinks, good food, and a slick setting brings World Cup viewing to a whole new level. Check it out, and get what you deserve! Reminder: Don’t forget to make bets on YOUR team!
Vu’s Sky Bar and Lounge is located at the 44th level of Marco Polo Ortigas Manila. For more information visit www.marcopolohotels.com.
