Long Bar @ Raffles Makati ~ Experience The Real Bar

In today's Millennial's terminologies, when we say "lets go to a bar" we instantly think of Super Clubs such as the Famous Republiq, The Hyve, Icon, or the likes. Dancing to rave like music may it be Trance, Electronic Dance Music or House. The term "Club" in the PH has a negative image as a "Club" in tagalog is identified as also a "beer house"... need I to explain further? [Level Pegasus & ClassMates].

However as I do research on the term "Bar" I seem to get a consistent conclusion that the term was coined from European origin which is described as an establishment which serves liquor. In image mode of search engines this is what a bar typically looks like.

I was lucky enough to be invited to check out this establishment in Raffles Hotel Makati called the "Long Bar". Im not a hard drinker and also not a food blogger but I instantly took pictures of the place as it looks so good and I really loved the place that I wanna come here as often as I can which I decided from the first 5 minutes I stepped in to the establishment.

Again; Im not a foodie or lifestyle blogger so Im just gonna post some pictures of The Long Bar, Just an insight as a customer of the establishment, I really love their staff! their bar tenders are super friendly and such professional bar tenders gauging what we feel about the food and drinks, suggesting us drinks and food [up-selling in a nice way] and ultimately engaging with customers as to how was our day, we're gonna put this in your drink because... it add flavors for example... or just simply entertaining us on how they prepare drinks and other certain orders.
