As health restrictions ease up and bars can now remain open “till late,” Port Bar at the Hilton Manila could be the next favorite watering hole in Metro Manila.
Port Bar is inspired by Port of Manila, the “largest and historically significant shipping gateway to the Philippines” that opened in 1595 at the height of the Spanish Colonial Period.
The resulting pub is a mix of traditional and modern touches — from vintage leathers, wooden floors to live music and a relatively young crowd unwinding after hours.
Food and drink are a source of pride for Port bar and the Hilton Manila culinary team, led by recently appointed Chef Ryan Hong, its new executive chef.
Chef Ryan heads the culinary operations of the hotel’s dining outlets: Kusina Sea Kitchens, Hua Yuan Brasserie Chinoise, Madison and Port Bar, as well as its
in-room dining services. The Korean-Australian native will also oversee the hotel’s banquets and catering including weddings and corporate events.
“’We want to provide our patrons with an alternative, casual dining experience at Port Bar where they can simply unwind, share drinks and indulge in sumptuous meals with friends and family,” shares John Lucas, hotel general manager.
Fun and friendly, Port Bar presents guests with an a la carte service that is casual but attentive, with menu highlights such as: The Signature Port Cheeseburger, Rustic Paddle Sourdough Pizzas that pay tribute to Melbourne’s Lyon Street, and Tamnavulin Whiskey Aged Ribeye Steak, among others. Don’t forget to try the bar’s signature drink, The Port, at the place’s 10-seater bar area.
The Port comfortably seats up to 50 guests, with social distancing guidelines. It also offers a pool table, two flat screen TVs airing the latest sports games to complement the different cocktail mixes and ice cold draft beer menu offerings, among other beverage offers.
