The Thirty Six O family got a special invitation from the Chateau Group of Restaurants, dinner and drinks at SIDEBAR! How could we say NO to that?:) After hearing good reviews about this chill hang out, we knew a trip to Ortigas would be worth it. SIDEBAR is located within the El Pueblo complex, just along Julia Vargas in Ortigas.
I saw pictures of this place on various blogs before but upon seeing the restaurant for the first time I was really thoroughly impressed by their interiors. It’s definitely a very posh hang out spot, perfect for a night out with friends and officemates with a more discriminating taste.
SIDEBAR is famous for their signature cocktails and drinks. Although I personally am not much of a drinker, I did enjoy their mojito punch and their lychee martini. The rest of the gang enjoyed their specialty drinks concocted on the spot by their skilled bartenders.
We also had our tummies filled with their yummy bar chows—small plates with BIG FLAVOR!!! My favorites include the Pulled Pork Sliders, Salbacho Pizza, The NEW Sisig Experience (we dared Marti to take the shot!), Sausage with Onions, Risotto Balls with Chorizo, and Gambas. Price points are fairly decent at 150-200++ for a small plate that packs a lot of punch when it comes to flavor. If you’re in the Ortigas area, you might want to check this place out!
Thank you again so much SIDEBAR for hosting our Thirty Six O get together! A shout out to all the kind waiters and staff of Side Bar for their exceptional service. We’ll be dropping by again real soon 🙂
