Where I live now there are tons of places to choose from. But my heart got set on H&J. Makati residents would probably know it better from it’s former name Heckle and Jeckle – and it wasn’t named after the classic thriller literary piece, but after those two irritating magpies in that cartoon…
You got cheap beer, friendly waitresses, a few pool tables, a poker room upstairs and food that’s good enough for picapica.
It is a sports bar so there are a lot of monitors around the place to cater to all kinds of sports afficionados. I usually don’t go there when there’s a scheduled big game of sorts… first because I am not sporty at all, and second, because the boys get a little to intense and rowdy.
