Dumaguete City Nightlife, Philippines

More than half of the land area of the city of Dumaguete is dedicated to the various educational institutions. This is connected with the city’s vocation as a center for learning in the Philippines. That is why almost all nightspots have been sorted in almost the same area around the city. Thankfully, every nightlife destination in the city is just a jeepney’s ride or a hop on a tricycle - a local 3-wheeled motor vehicle. In a city of the gentle people, the happenings come to life at night.

A popular destination is the Escano beach where most bars and discos can be found. It is an area fronting the sea creating the perfect ambiance for dining, dancing, eating and having a good time. In fact, the locals would just park in the beachfront, pump up the volumes of their car stereos and voila, their own party unfolds.

However, for the visitors probably one of the best spots to head to is the Hayahay Tree House Bar. It is fronting the Escano beach and is home to the best grilled seafood including talaba and a pizza that could melt away all hunger. To top it all the tree house provides a fantastic view that overlooks the sea perfect for savoring the sea breeze. Every week reggae bands from all over the country head to this charming junction for a jam-packed night to the best reggae grooves.

Just adjacent to this restaurant is yet El Camino, the ultimate party place in Dumaguete. It is home to rave parties and foam parties happening the whole year round for the delight of the party-going public.

Just beside it is the Barefoot bar. As the name would suggest, it is a place where anybody can let their hair down and play their favorite games such as billiards, table tennis and even basketball. On top of it, one can eat their food on specially designed hut all over the beachfront. In all these restaurants, prices are as affordable as they can get.

Likewise, in the main thoroughfare of the city called Rizal Boulevard, a walk at night on its lighted pavement can prove to be surprisingly enjoyable. A good number of stalls offering grilled food or some decent bars for a night of dancing surely make the walk equally purposeful.

Dumaguete is a city that never sleeps. True to its name, it captivates its visitors making them not wanting to go home anymore. Be spellbound with what the city can offer and who knows, you may not want to leave!
