Makati is indeed one of the prime destinations when it comes to bars and party places. When I had the chance to stay in I’m Hotel, I learned about their rooftop bar which is called Antidote.

Oozing with uniqueness, Antidote is the first jellyfish bar in the country with colourful live jellyfish display that will surely mesmerize every eye. The setting is also perfect as it has the 360-degree view of the metro, literally awesome if you just want to chill with your friends or love one.

Tucked at the rooftop of I’m Hotel, Antidote has the ambiance of perfection while drinking with your favorite margarita or mojito. For the price, it’s the same with other bars around the area - a bit expensive but reasonable for the ambiance of the place.

Crowd is mostly foreigners whether they are staying at the hotel or just plainly visiting the bar. The genre of the music is all for the party. You’ll definitely enjoy the place if you are looking for a unique place to hangout.

Antidote is one of the famous bars in Makati known for its Makati cityscape view. Antidote is located on top of I’M Hotel where we were staying during our visit to Antidote. Good thing there was no strict dress code because I was wearing super casual clothes that time.

The bar becomes crowded as the night goes deeper but it’s a good thing that they have lots of cocktail tables behind the bar counter so people still have areas to chill. I liked how their menu is the type that lits up which makes it really easy to read in a semi-dark place.

I got a glass of mojito which was okay. It was a little stronger than other mojitos I’ve tried but a strong tasting mojito makes the drink worth the price.

One of the stopovers for my friend’s bachelorette party. We had just had a round of drinks. We got some cocktails which ranges from Php 250 to Php 500. I liked their aquarium filled with jelly fish. It was relaxing to look at.

It was raining outside so we didn’t get the view of the city. Then we moved else where since my friends were looking for some R&B music they were playing EDM that evening.

Ambiance is great! Food is good, order the Wagyu Cubes!

And at the hotel we ordered room service, pizza is delicious!

I went to Antidote Bar in I’M Hotel Makati for a Chillax Sunday.

The bar is located at the roofdeck of the hotel with the magnificent view of Metro Manila.

Since it was Sunday, the music was not so loud that time, which is good to me, it gave me more a relaxing feel.

I order a glass of rhum coke for Php200.00+. It was my companion while having my Sunday night vibe with the breathtaking view of the city.

Despite the busiest city in the metro, Antidote Bar is a good place where I can chill and have a good conversation with friends.

By the way, the bar has a spacious and nice interior.

There is a new bar in the city with a clever name and a jellyfish tank to boot. Antidote bar is the latest addition to the I’M Hotel facilities and it officially launched last 27th of October and us, media guests, were introduced to their selection of signature cocktail drinks and bar bites.

Antidote is a medicine that you take to counteract a poison; the name is selected to promote the idea to go to this bar to counteract the ‘poison’ e.g., stress, in our lives.

IM Hotel has the claim to having the first jelly fish aquarium in a bar in the country. Watching the jellyfish under the luminescent lights that change colors will leave you in a trance. For the jellyfish tank alone I would recommend that you visit this place.

The bar is situated on the rooftop that allow guests to have the best view of Makati skyline. It has different layers, made so to make the guest feel like they are bar hopping without leaving the hotel’s premises.

The chief bartender of Antidote is a world-renowned Bar Mace in New York. This, alone, makes me excited to try their offering.

They have 5 signature cocktails with quirky names:

Leek’n Good
Mr. DOMango
Ananas in Pandanus
Tokyo Sojourn

The only drinkS that I wasn’t able to try are Ube BAE and Mr. DOMango. If you want something strong pick Leek’n Good or Ananas in Pandanus. If you want something that tastes really good, pick the crowd’s favorite, Tokyo Sojourn.

Similarly, we got to try 5 of their bar bites offerings:

Mozzarella Jalapeño Cigars
Black Chilean Mussels and Local Clams
Tonkatsu Strips
Kueh Pie Tee
Earl Grey Lemon Sultana Brioche

The Mozzarella Jalapeño Cigars is my favorite, it comes with raspberry coulis, which sweet and sour taste balances out the spiciness of the Jalapeño.

Antidote is open from Mon-Thu from 5pm to 2am, and Fri-Sat from 6pm to 3am. I’M Hotel is located in Makati ave. corner Kalayaan ave., Makati City.
