For someone who lives in Antipolo City, I crave for really unique and different bars. Luckily, one of the establishments at La Fuerza Complex, Chino Roces, Makati City offers that. 20:20 Bar is a hidden gem for people who are seeking to enjoy great drinks minus the super busy crowd.
It may be a bit tricky to find but that makes 20:20 more enticing. Once inside, you’ll be welcomed by a very chilled out ambiance, heigh ceiling, artsy decor and dimmed lights. Owned by Anna Sobrena Ong, supported by her Russian mixologist, Alyona Vinogradova, they make sure that everyone gets the best drinks here. Looking for a unique concoction? They can make one for you as long as all the ingredients are readily available in the bar.
We were spoiled with numerous drinks like: In Love with the Coco, Amaretto Sour and the signature drink, 20:20 Mule.
Of course, you shouldn’t be drinking on an empty stomach (something I learned the hard way lol). 20:20 is not just all about their amazing drinks. Their delicious and affordable food actually makes them a great destination for dining out.
We tried their Gambas Al Ajillo, Chorizo con Vino, Popcorn with Manchego and Chorizo, pan-fried Squid a la Plancha, Marinated Quail Eggs with Anchoas, Tortilla de Patata con Aioli, Pinchos Marunos (their flavourful version of a Kebab), Patatas Bravas con Salsa Brava and more. All these are super good and filling. What’s even amazing is the fact that these are a hundred pesos each only. Talk about getting your money’s worth!
20:20 Bar also have DJs at night so if you feel like staying after a great dinner and drinks, for more drinks and a little bit of dancing, I highly suggest that you do so. The overall ambiance would want you to just chill out and have a laidback kind of evening. I’ll definitely come back soon here!
