Subic Bars and Sights

Unread post by bender » Thu Mar 16, 2017 3:03 pm

Subic Bay or more correctly Olangapo aka Bario Barreto has a main drag with a strip of girly bars. This whole strip is walking distance to the beach and there are plenty of resorts here too. This is a rough and ready place, a hangover from WW2 where US servicemen would come for R&R. Its dusty, third world and soaked with cheap booze and hookers - I love it! The beach aspect gives it an appeal Aussies can relate too, plus the sincerity and humour of the local Philippinos really shines through. For the single bloke I rate this spot way better than Bali. I've added a few details in the comments under each photo.
Here is a view of Baloy Beach, note the Blue Rock floating bar

Cheap Charlies is a rooftop bar run by some mad brits, they have the cheapest beer in town (90c apparently) and plenty of freelancers hang out there, however be early to find a seat it can get packed.

Lollipop had a cover band setup in the bar. More of a crowd here it must be a favourite spot. Some of the hostesses here were real lookers too.

Crazy Horse is an Aussie bar, less girls working here but they tended to be younger and prettier in general, wearing cowgirl costumes of course!

Paradise is a little cover band / rock club with diner style seating and a sound proof band room. Not many people here when I popped in, but the cover band were great fun!

Wet Spot was a busier bar, and it has great air con. The corner stage features 1 dance pole. You can ask girls for massages while you drink.

Old mate said this bird had won the previous 7 fights in a row, so it's like the local champion.
