When it rains, you can always expect the entire metro to slow down. In fact, just add water and the city stops. Flooded streets and traffic jams can spoil your plans for the day, but you can just let it rain and have a comforting bowl of tart sinigang paired with a hearty savory dish... 


 ...and sit it out. And you can do just that at MESA Filipino Moderne. So let it rain.

Raising The Bar for Dad: The Pen Ultimate Dream Lounge at The Bar and Salon de Ning

The Peninsula Manila raises the bar once more with another adventurous spin for a memorable Father's Day experience...


Dad's definitely the Man at The Peninsula Manila. Last June 17, 2018, Salon de Ning and The Bar were transformed into the Pen Ultimate Dream Lounge, a one-afternoon-only pop-up to honor dads in a novel and cool celebration. The Peninsula Manila partnered with Back Alley Barbershop, Auro Chocolate, Smart Infinity, Vespa, Jo Malone, Urban Traveller, Tino, Slow Days, Vintage Grail, Wine Depot and Apotheke Craft Spirits in an inspired collaboration to recreate the sophisticated feel and vibe of a private gentleman's club for a hip Father's Day experience like no other.
