Alaska Bar/Club is located on National Highway, Barrio Baretto, Olongapo, Subic Bay, about halfway up the strip. We’re reviewing this bar simply because we went there, but it barely warrants any kind of mention. On entrance to Alaska Bar there were no other customers, one waitresses, and four very bored looking dancers. The waitress was extremely pushy with regards to drinks, and well pretty much everything. But as annoying as the waitress was, the dancers were even worse. Insulting, zero bants, and the reason we stayed for only 5 minutes. Maybe we caught Alaska Bar in a bad night, but I can only judge a horse on the races it’s run. Alaska Bar is the worst bar in Subic Bay. Don’t go to Alaska Bar Subic Bay!
If you’re fresh off the boat in Olongapo then the place to get your party jollies in National Highway Barrio Baretto. It’s not exactly walking street (it is not pedestrianised at all), but it’s a street full of great bars to get down and dirty. Hot Zone is about halfway down the strip on 55 Barrio Baretto and without doubt one of the craziest bars on the strip. Toilet in Hot Zone The bar is owned, or at least managed by a cool American guy who seemed to be partying harder than anyone else (always a good sign for a bar). The waitresses at Hotzone are super cheeky, fun, but most importantly not overtly pushy on drinks. Partying in Hot Zone Effort has also been made with the dancers, who are all dressed in swimming costumes, and actually look like they want to be there. Hot Zone, Subic Bay Happy hour drinks are 75, regular drinks
To be declared the worst at something is almost as hard as being the best, it takes effort. If the Old Flaming Bar isn’t the worst bar in Angeles City, please tell me what is. Angeles is rightly famous for its pretty girls in their girly bars. But, what happens when said girls are too old even for Subic Bay? Are they sent out to pasture? No, they are send to Old Flaming Bar. Flaming is situated almost opposite the Wild Orchid Hotel, not all that far from crack alley (which has now been gentrified) and consists of ladies who should have long since retired becoming in punters and offering their wares. Let’s just say that compared to other bars everything here is cheaper, except for the drinks..... If you’re shopping on a budget, you may well like it here, or you kind of want to just “go on safari”. Ironically it used to just
La Bamba Cantina is one of the first bars as you enter Walking Street, so therefore a good place to begin happy drinkies. One of the longest running girly bars on the street that started its life as “Hobo Bar”, before morphing into its current incarnation. Another bar that has a centrally placed dance floor surrounded by stools, this meaning you are right in the middle of the action. Beers are cheap enough at 75 Peso a local drink at happy hour, to 110 at other times. Bar fine is 3k........ La Bamba Ángeles Menú Music here is actually quite decent and upbeat (compared to other bars on Fields), and they even have a signature cocktail. Allegedly at least La Bamba makes the best Frozen Margaritas in Angeles! You’ll need to judge that one by yourselves..... Like any bar on Fields the girls change a lot, but they’re usually a lot
One of the longest running and most iconic bars of Walking Street, Shooterz has been a favourite of tourists and expats alike for a long time. Shooterz was formerly known as the DMZ Bar, but in its current incarnation is part of the “Wolfpack” Group, hence why it is one of the best. It’s located about halfway down walking street, and is unmissable due to its large neon sign, and the pretty stationed outside to pull the punters in. Shooterz Bar - Fields Avenue The bar itself is relatively small, but by placing the stage dead center, and surrounding it with stools, you are right in the thick of the action. The stage fits about 6-8 pretty dancers 👯♀️ on it， who are a little more animated that some other establishments. Prices here are extremely reasonable, with a happy hour local drink setting you back PHP 75, a girly drink 225,
What is the lowdown on the GRO’s in AC? Here’s the guide to the weird language of the party bars of Angeles City. The Philippines might be a staunchly Catholic country, such as with condoms and gay people, but when it comes to girly bars they exist loud and proud throughout the country. Now for obvious reasons, let’s use Angeles City as our case in point. And Fields Avenue in particular (girl bar central). When you enter a bar in Angeles City you will spy many scantily clad girls dancing (very slow and bored) to bad Filipino pop music. You then sit down and grab yourself a drink. Now let’s say you are hypothetically watching her dancing for purely aesthetic reasons, and you catch the eye of one of the girls working. She is known as a GRO, or guest relations officer (how posh), and if you beckon her over, she will happily take
