MANILA, Philippines — A new rooftop bar in Poblacion, Makati is now open for lovers and friends to have a night out this Valentine’s Day. 

In Dusk at 27th, guests will get a sweeping view of the metro skyline as you indulge in chef-created food and drinks in a cozy bar that is designed to offer fun and memorable bonding moments.

The interiors are done in modern aesthetic chic, with choices of plush couches for large groups or more intimate table settings that are perfect for date night. 

“Our concept is for a bar that caters to anyone who wants to have a great time, from Gen Zs to other age groups. Even though we are a mainstream concept, we want to offer our guests premium service in a premium ambience with premium food at accessible price points,” General Manager Jay Martal said. 

As the bar is located at the 27th floor of Hotel Berjaya, the food is also elevated, with Head Chef Aphol Sollorano and Sous Chef Querovin de Mesa working with their team to provide their own appetizing take on bar chow dishes that have familiar flavors in servings that are meant for sharing.

Starters such as salads are available, in choices of Watermelon, Pomelo or Seaweed Apple Poppy Seeds in Balsamic Vinaigrette. There is also a wide selection of pasta dishes, including the creamy and comforting Truffle Chicken and a Bolognese that features a slow-simmered rich sauce. 

Bar Chow choices include a well-made Crispy Pata with crackling skin that shatters with each bite; Sizzling Shrimp Gambas, and tender Calamari rings coated in a light and crispy batter. As for chips, the must-try is 3-Cheese Artichoke with Tortilla and Potato Chips. 

Other must-tries from the menu are Sisig Rolls, with succulent sisig deep fried lumpia style; and the Crispy Tofu Chicken Inasal that brings together golden fried tofu squares with flavorful chicken.

Since Berjaya Hotel is known for its selection of authentic Malaysian dishes, there’s also a Chicken Satay that is rich with spices, pairing well with their drinks. Those with a sweet tooth will love the Banana Panchetta, a playful take on sweet and savory flavors as grilled saba banana is rolled in bacon and served with a yummy peanut sauce. 

Their drink selection is also extensive, with local and imported beers, a range of red and white wines, along with classic cocktails and their exciting bar signatures. Adventurous tandems can try their Christian Grey (a straightforward nutty, buttery toast wood shaving with hay walnut, classic black tea flavor and sweet notes from toffee and almond) and the Anastacia (watermelon juice with a taste of tequila). The Midnight Moondrop is a citrusy tart concoction with passionfruit and Aperol, while the intriguing Spice Me Up! has a powerful profile of yuzu and spices. Those who want their libations to pack a flavorful punch can opt for the Violeta Amore that has floral lavender notes or the Clearly Confusion that has a refreshing Calamansi base.

Dusk at 27th offers exciting activities and promos for guests, with trivia game nights, a disc jockey to provide the beats, live musical performances, and even a comedy show featuring funnyman Alex Calleja slated for February 16.  

Their Ladies Night promo features a free classic cocktail for ladies with every order of a signature cocktail while Wine Wednesday lets customers avail of a free charcuterie sampler for every wine label order. Tipsy Tuesdays offers a free Sisig Roll for every bucket of beer and the Sip and Save promo on Mondays and Sundays gives 20% off on classic cocktail orders.  

The Management Team composed of Winnie Manansala, Jennebeth Irinco, Mary Ann Manalo, and Federico Julio Ballesteros said that Dusk at 27th is for anyone who wants to have fun. The vibe is "come as you are," and the establishment is also inclusivity and diversity-friendly. 

Dusk at 27th is open from 5 p.m and is at 27th floor of Berjaya Hotel, Makati Avenue corner Eduque St., Poblacion, Makati City.
