Movida Fashion Food + Club in Poblacion, Makati City
There’s a new restaurant in Poblacion, Makati that literally serves almost every dishes you could possibly think of.
Cafe restaurant and co-working spot in the morning til dinnertime to lounge bar and restaurant (with live music) from 9pm onwards, Movida Fashion Food + Club is one of the game changers in the local F&B industry.
The literal meaning of Movida in Spanish is movement. However, it can also translate into a street party or an underground movement. A name that encapsulates such colorful and lively place where people can move, dance and have fun.
Located in the corner of P. Burgos and General Luna (same building of “A Long Time Ago”), you’ll be amazed to find this beautiful and spacious restaurant that can fit up to 100 people. The ambiance is very inviting and you can choose to seat on the couch, table or the high bench.
Personally, if I’ll be working on my laptop, I’ll be on the high bench, if catch up lunch or afternoon date, I’ll be on the table, and on evenings for the live bands, I will go for the couch for that ultimate comfort.
Here’s a little sneak peek of what they offer:

Movida offers healthy fruit juices perfect for breakfast or afternoon breaks. Pictured above are:

They have a good selection of appetizers, finger food and snacks that are perfect for sharing. You’ll notice that their menu ranges from Asian, Mediterranean to Western. As one of the owners, Ido Gurevich graciously hosted us and explained that there is no specific cuisine but more of a fusion. A mix of all the different dishes from different cuisines.
Movida’s menu changes from day to night, should you come in the evening and would like to order something from their day menu – you can ask one of the staff.
Aside from the menu, the ambiance and the mood changes as the lights dim and candles are lit on every table. Expect for the music to be more loud to get everyone in the mood for some dancing. By 9:30pm, the live music starts and on some nights, Movida features a DJ until closing time.

We open from 11 am. We serve coffee, fresh juices, fresh shakes. We serve lunch and then we have a dinner menu.
After that by 9 pm, we shift from day menu into night menu where food options are limited, more on pica-pica. So we have only the appetizers, some tapas. We have some platters that is good for sharing and some sushi and Japanese menu.
So it’s more light food while drinking. We have a very large alcohol and wine selection. – Ido Gurevich
