Who said that squares are just a confined space bordered in four corners? Bellagio Square is a place that will give you the freedom to experience different things all at once. Were back and ready to explore Manila and its nearby environs. So we headed off to the heart of Manila coz we heard that there is a new tambayan in town, Bellagio. Square. Located at Jorge Bocobo St. in Malate Manila, Bellagio Square is the latest dining and entertainment place in town.
Composed of 10 establishments, the square provides customers a place to relax and have a good time. Businesses that are open here range’s from restaurants, spas, to beauty and wellness centers. Talk about perfect dining and relaxed pampering. The place used to be a parking lot of a famous bar. Neglected for several years until change of city officials who promptly led a drive to clean and modernize Malate, forever changed that drab looking vacant space into one of the hangouts of yuppies and teens. Unlike malls, Bellagio has a large al fresco area that can be an option for customers if they want to eat or drink inside or outside the place they patronize. The square is open more than 18 hours a day. Practically they are open almost twenty four hours a day, so no need to worry if you are planning to come here early in the morning or late in the evening. The construction of a nearby mall assures the Bellagio tenants continued influx of customers who want to take a night or day out after hours of tiring shopping in the mall.
Kitt and Arlene tired from the one month trip abroad immediately immersed themselves to the services of Bioessence spa to have a relaxing massage.
I don’t want to be left out so I tried the service of Tony and Jackey Korean hairstylist to get my haircut.
All stalls are just a stones throw away from each other so you can just literally hop from one place to another. Other establishment here are Koi, a Japanese inspired bar that offers Filipino food and beverages. To taste authentic food of Spain there is the Patio Guernica. Craving for Persian kebabs there is Simorgh.
Fusion of Japanese and Korean shabu shabu in Naha. Visit Hong Kong for their pica-pica in Yin Lok Kui. Going Greek, we dined in the Hellas Tavernas which serve genuine and mean Mediterranean food. For the sweet tooth’s out there, take your delicious desserts in Whiteberry.
On weekends expect the crowds to triple in volume as bands are set to liven up the crowd with cool music. Try out this trendy place and see what all the rage is about.

Jorge Bocobo st. Malate Manila
My favorite shape is a Square
Rodel: Homey and comfortable this is how I
describe Bellagio square in two words. It is a one stop shop for almost anything one needs. From restaurants to personal pampering. I personally like the Hellas Tavernas where a wicked serving of Greek delicacies can be found. At the middle of it is an open spacious space where one can unwind under the tapestry of the night sky. Added bonus is the bands that play here on weekends.
