Poblacion

Located in Makati City, Poblacion is packed with restaurants, food stalls, and shopping malls. The word “poblacion” literally means “town” in Spanish, and Barangay Poblacion is part of Makati’s first district. It also contains Makati’s Heritage District, as well as commercial areas like the popular A. Venue Event Mall, and Century City. Rockwell Center can also be found here, where various condominiums, serviced apartments, Power Plant Mall, and business establishments like Nestlé Philippines are located.

Perhaps Poblacion’s charm lies in its fusion of the old and new, making it an ideal area for tourists, mall goers, locals, students, and entrepreneurs alike. Poblacion Park is an option for those who simply want to enjoy an afternoon stroll. Historical sites are also accessible to the public, such as the Museo ng Makati and the Sts. Peter and Paul Parish Church built in the 1600s.

Barangay Poblacion also makes for an ideal food trip, with stops such as El Chupacabra for tacos, Tambai for Japanese cuisine, or The Red Light for some drinks. At night, the pubs and bars are a must-visit for anyone who enjoys a good party. Try going to Time, 12 Monkeys Music Hall & Pub, and Society Lounge for a variety of nightlife scenes.
