Am I a bad person for not posting a review for more than 6 months? Crazy! Alright, let's get down to business 'cause I have tons of reviews to do! This is 1 of 3 bars that I'm reviewing for my big looloo comeback, haha.

Thirsty Barber's definitely one of my favorite speakeasies here in Manila. For those who aren't familiar with this place, it's a bar hidden behind a barbershop's (Felipe & Sons) bookcase. Swanky! So if you're looking for a great nightcap that's far from all the noise and huge sweaty crowds inside clubs, you can definitely check this place out in San Juan. It's in the same building as that petite Korean bakery (totally forget the name) which now happens to be my favorite recovery place after a night of drinking, haha. Talk about perfect location!

This one-of-a-kind speakeasy has pretty cool interiors, great music (especially during jazz nights), and lots of space for you and your friends to fool around. They have a fresh set of drinks and cocktails too which you're surely going to love. And I also love the crowd here because it's so "curated." Overall, it's a really cool place for a nightcap and I'm so in love with it. This place is a true gem that's worth checking out.

What I recommend: Try Dinakdakan (a dish like sisig that's perfect before the heavy drinks come) and Undercut (a spicy tequila-ish drink). Their dishes were crafted by Chef JR Royol who's actually the 1st Filipino Masterchef in history!

Note: This review is not for the barber shop but for what's inside it.

Oh my gosh!!! I didn't know that there's a place like this near my house. Thirsty Barber is one of those clubs with all-out music and dancing. Who would've thought that there's a "bar" along Wilson Street? No wonder the parking spaces of this building are filled even though it's around 12 in the morning.

Coming from the name itself (Thirsty Barber), you have to go through the barber shop place before you get to the bar. We went there around 11pm and the place was still pumped and packed. A lot of people were drinking and dancing. Since the place was packed with people, it made Thirsty Barber hot (as in mainit). Like any other bar, it was hard to communicate and talk to people. It also wasn't easy to go in and out of the place because the door was so small and was right beside the crowded bar counter (this is where people order and get the drinks) and is located in one small corner of the club. I think it's actually better to stay in the barber shop area if you want an area that's more appropriate for communication/conversation or just a more breathable area. My cousin ordered beer for us and paid for it so I'm not sure if it's super pricey or not. I'm also interested to know if they sell food here and what kind are these.
