Night outs with friends are not a complicated affair in Cebu. There’s little need for flashy outfits and bling, just great company, an awesome place that serves affordable and yummy food and we are good to go.

Here are a few of our favorite places to kick back, catch up and hang out:

Burrow Lounge

Burrow Lounge is the place to be when you just want to kick back and talk to friends for hours while munching on unlimited chicken wings for only Php 199. Yup, you heard that right. Wing all you can with flavors and dips of your choice (there’s a lot of them).

Address: Unit 4, Ground Flr., Tsai Hotel & Residences, Camp Lapulapu Rd., Lahug, Cebu City, Philippines | Parkmall, Reclamation Area Mandaue

There are a couple of things we like about Manggahan. First, the place in Lahug has a lot of space for big groups, you won’t think twice about hauling your entire barkada there. Second, their food selection and servings can feed your entire barkada too. Have a go at their yummy crispy pata or if you’re feeling gutsy, their crocodile sisig or baki. Yum.

Lord of the Ribs

Somehow Lord of the Ribs sounds like a place where you can find your boyfriend gorging into a mess of baby back ribs after an intense basketball game with his bros against Gandalf. I don’t know, maybe it’s just me. The place may be a bit tiny, but the ribs sure are good. One rib to rule them all, right?

Vault Boardgame Café

Board game cafe? Yes please! The newest addition to Cebu’s ever-growing list of hangouts is the first of its kind in the city. Never a boring night when you’re with crazy friends, good food (did somebody say fried oreos?) and a round of Cards Against Humanity.

Address: G/F Unit 9 & 10 The Greenery, Pope John Paul II Avenue, Mabolo Cebu City, Philippines

Handuraw Pizza Gorordo

How do we describe Handuraw? It’s practically an institution. Hanging out here is a rite of passage. Many a great Cebuano song had been played within the walls of this café. It’s a nook for workaholics and slobs, adults and kids alike. Plus their pizza is to die for. Handuraw’s homey vibe is so Cebu and it’s stood the test of time. Have I mentioned how I love Handuraw?
