Why The Library Comedy Bar & Restaurant is special ?

The Library Bar, with 21 years of existence, is considered as a second home to stand-up comedians and to its regular patrons. Like a tapestry, The Library weaves a number of factors into a blend that is distinctly different. Its mahogany panels, overflowing bookshelves and antique decors are contrasted with modern furnishings producing a cozy ambience that evoke both century old and modern day pragmatism. The walls reverberate with music that defies conventions: it is a place where opera and Broadway hits are performed and applauded with the same gusto as the top 40’s. And the crowd transcends labels. Here you will find students mingling uninhibitedly with artists and yuppies, politicians guzzling beer with activists and journalists brushing elbows with celebrities. Foreigners also make the place a harbor from their travels. Perhaps this is one of the main reasons why TIME MAGAZINE Asia (April 15, 2002 issue) featured The Library as one of the best entertainment place to visit in Manila.

This is the original and best comedy Bar in Manila! It's a unique cultural experience, showing the best side of the philipinno character and culture. The good humoured banta flows all night, the singing (for tips) is top quality entertainment, and the headline acts are brilliant. It doesn't matter if it's in Tagalog or English, you will still be laughing along. Drinks are fair priced, top value, even with a Peso 250 entrance fee (I'd pay 500!).Add this to your list if must do things in Manila, you will come back again!

エルミタ、マラテの夜遊び、飲みで変わった処でオカマ(現地語でバクラ)のショ-はどうでしょうか?入場料が200ペソ(たぶん)ですが延々と続くショ-はその価値に十分でしょう。飲み物、ツマミ類は現地価格なので二時間位居ても1000ペソ(約2000円)で収まるでしょう。ただ外国人はショ-の合間によくイジラレルので笑い飛ばして下さい。特に日本人はイジリ易いみたいです。ショ-は英語、タガログ語が解らなくても全然OKです。GFとか友達とわいわい盛り上がって下さい。ただ店の場所がちょっと安全とは言えないので最低限の注意をお忘れなく。
