Surrendering to Sensuality at Buddha-Bar Manila

Have you been to a place so strikingly beautiful, you cannot help but surrender to it?

If you happen to be in the cosmopolitan area of Makati, you’ll notice that the newest plush bar-lounge-restaurant hybrid, Buddha-Bar Manila, situated in Picar Place gives you this and more. Indubitably, you’ll be wowed the moment you see the grand profile of the establishment, but your first step inside will confirm this awe.

Sprawling with three full floors, the biggest franchise of Buddha-Bar in the world, with a seating capacity of over 500, is etched with the lush hues of gold and scarlet by Parisian painter Bruno Tanquel, embodying both its Oriental roots and European influences. Accentuated by Rococo style banisters, rich mahogany furniture, intricate wall mosaics, amber-colored lighting that accordingly subdues as the day progresses, and ceiling-high windows that share the setting of the sun, every corner is made a feast for the eyes.

Speaking of feasts, you will be blown away by the array of drinks and dishes that make up the signature of Buddha-Bar. Conjured only with first-class ingredients, service and gustative concepts, the lounge lets the East meet the West as it fuses Asian flavors with French influences—a cuisine labeled as Pacific Rim cooking. Headed by Executive Chef Maria Milagros Socorro Santos, you’ll be presented with everything with the likes of the Buddha-Bar Chicken SaladSeared Sesame Tuna with Shiitake VinaigretteFillet Mignon cooked “Teppan Yaki” StyleFive-Spice Barbecued ChickenSeared Foie Gras with Truffle Teriyaki, and a full selection of sushi plates.

And what’s a fully sensual experience without treating the auditory too? Soothing and ambient, the best of the lounge’s in-house DJs distill the Buddha-Bar music collection through a state-of-the-art Meyer Sound system that lets every sound flow in an enveloping manner. Enhanced by a global view of the room as they spin in a dark brown booth, the DJs summon the perfect melodious atmosphere of world, electro and house music exclusively stamped with the Buddha-Bar concept. As the thrilling set of tracks stir listeners in, each release lets you take off—if only for awhile—to the exotic reaches of your fantasy.

In Buddha-Bar Manila, everything comes together to enthrall your senses as it echoes of sheer sensuality and sophistication. With all pockets of your senses satiated, let Buddha-Bar usher you out of the day’s frenzy and take you to lofty heights as you explode into the consciousness of most of the world with an unrivaled experience unlike any other.

Buddha-Bar Manila is located at Picar Place along Kalayaan Avenue in Makati City and is open from 12 P.M. to 2 A.M. during Mondays to Fridays and 5 P.M. to 3 A.M. For more information or reservations, please visit www.buddhabarmanila.com.
