A glittering gem amidst the rough bustle along Shaw Boulevard, the Panic Room (@panicroomph) is a blacklight dance club flooded with pulsating neon lights and thumping hype EDM. Hidden behind a swiveling brick wall, Panic Room is an extension of Chill Bar Starmall, tucked at the end of the pub’s back hallway. Who would have thunk this fun speakeasy-and-night-club existed in Mandaluyong, let alone in the middle of EDSA Starmall?
Before entering, we had the option to embellish ourselves with fluorescent face paint and neon Stabilo highlighters. Panic Room Shaw also provided glow stick accessories like bracelets, glasses, earrings and headbands.
We shuffled to the modern electro pop tunes, sipping from our fluorescent straws and neon cups. The Guyabano Mint Fores (PHP 109) was a refreshing frozen margarita. We popped Jello Shots (PHP 199/5 pcs) in between.
The Panic Room at Chill Bar also has beer pong. We played girls vs. boys. It was kind of hard doing it in the dark, but we managed to get a few balls in.
The Panic Room Shaw also serves awesome bar chow like the Nasty Nachos (PHP 349), Wonder Wings (PHP 245), Spam Cubes (PHP 160) and the Squid Spread (PHP 399).
