7 Best Nightclubs in Metro Manila: Where to Party

Ready to hit the dance floor? Check out our top picks for the hottest nightclubs in Metro Manila right now. We’ve selected them based on the crowd and vibe they offer.

You’ll find nightclubs mainly in four areas: Bonifacio Global City (BGC) in Taguig, Poblacion in Makati, Tomas Morato in Quezon City, and Malate in Manila. Generally, BGC and Makati clubs are fancier than those in Quezon City and Malate, but all Manila clubs are buzzing, especially on weekends.

  • Avoid accepting drinks from strangers. Some people tamper with them by adding party drugs.
  • Most clubs have a dress code. Make sure to dress accordingly.
  • Stick with your friends throughout the night. Establish a meeting point in case you get separated, especially in crowded clubs where the energy can get overwhelming.
  • Stay mindful of pickpockets.
  • Be cautious when using your phone on the streets outside the clubs, particularly in areas like Poblacion, Makati, and Malate. Incidents of thieves on motorcycles snatching phones from clubgoers have been reported.
  • Tip: Avoid paying for club entrance by finding a promoter who can add your names to the guestlist.
