Achingly cool and imbued with a degree of kookiness—the cocktails are served Mad Hatter-style in white ceramic teapots for example—B-Side is currently the city's hipster hangout of choice. International DJs such as Scottish deep funk font Keb Darge and Californian psychedelic hip-hop maestro Nobody have played here, and the venue often features Manila's more questing electronic artists and turntablists. Celebrity patrons have been known to get their groove on here, but there's nothing pretentious about the vibe. The homely interior—comfy sofas with plumped up cushions and tasteful low lighting—gives it the feel of an oversized living room, making it the perfect place for an intimate shindig.
