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
Blue rock resort is one of the many resorts that litter Baloy Long Beach of Subic Bay. I’ve never stayed here, as it’s beachside rooms inflate the price compared to say, Wild Orchid. It also has a swimming pool that is so small to deem it pointless. Blue Rock Resort It does though have a great beachside restaurant! Located at the far side of the beach on the road leading up to bar street, Blue Rock has amazing big set up of tables facing the ocean. The menu is a little bit overbearing, having literally hundreds of dishes (such as Mexican), but if you know what to order, you’re gonna have a good day. It’s all about the seafood at Blue Rock, Subic, with yellow and blue fin tuna, lots of local fish, and amazing oysters. My personal welcome of choice when I order here are blue fin tuna sashimi, kinilaw
Wild Orchid is one of the best hotels in Angeles City, and probably the best in Subic Bay. Wild Orchid isn’t exactly on the Baloy Lomg Beach, but it’s near enough the good restaurants, the beach, and of course the big street with all the bars of Barrio Barretto As well as the poolside bar (Scalliwags) there’s a second indoor bar called Moby Dicks, and of course the best damned swimming pool in Subic Bay. Wild Orchid - Subic Bay The poolside bar (Scalliwags Bar) doesn’t require you to be resident in the hotel, and they make a whole heap of great cocktails. Their Bloody Mary will quench any hangover. Bloody Mary at Wild Orchid There’s a range of rooms, which are usually cheaper on the door than by booking online that start from about $60 a night. Fly the bus to Angeles City also leaves from here.
