headed straight to the opposite end of the road into a complex teeming with
yuppies and families, all to dine and drink. A few steps to the left is the
recently opened Gravity Bar (December 6), which is managed and owned by the same ones
spearheading The Food Club.
friendly bartenders and manager revealed though that guests don’t start pouring
in till around 10pm. Wednesdays through Saturdays are especially hectic. Wednesdays most especially, with Mocha Uson performing at the open stage fronting the bar. It’s standing room only with guests – males, mostly – fighting for space just to see Mocha grind her stuff.

The bar is capacious and hip. By hip, I mean swell R&B and trance music, impressive laser lights and a whole roster of affordable international drinks (shooters, cocktails, mixers and hard ones) to get you crazy drunk. Not to mention a bowl of free chicharon or nuts for every San Mig bucket (P300 for 6 bottles).
But booze and a rockin’ modern ambiance aside, is Gravity Bar worth visiting even by families with kids? In some aspects, it is. There’s a host of flavors to delight in. There’s pizza and finger food selections, ten or more for each. For the super starving, you have noodles, sizzling and grilled meats, and house specialties like Crispy Pata to choose from. Inside it’s safe for kids i.e. strictly no smoking room (guests may do that at Gravity’s al fresco tables outside).
Sometimes the mom in me kicks in and thinks I’m quite too old for all that loud, thumping dance music and fancy booze, but ya know, that one night, Gravity Bar reminded me how fun and silly it is to be young again. Could offer the same experience for you, folks!
