Having read online about this area full of second hand music stores, I eagerly headed to Cubao Expo. It is hard to find, and when you do you find it is one small horseshoe shaped street with a selection of second hand stores, bars, an...More

I went with my GF to check this place out. Lonely Planet made it sound great: a collection of cool bars and underground music venues where we'd be sure to find something.. Instead we found two streets of tiny little Filipino bars (half outdoor) and...More

A pocket of character in grimy (or sanitized, depending on where you're looking) Cubao. In particular, Fred's Revolucion is where NGO workers and artsy students (mostly from UP) hang out. Cheap beer (P45 for Brew Kettle and P50 for San Mig Lite) with a bit...More
