Previously the Army and Navy Club, Rizal Park Hotel is a century-old property reminiscent of the pre-war colonial period. Now a luxury hotel, its rooftop is home to Penthouse By The Bay, an al fresco dining experience with an overlooking view of Manila Bay.
Watch this destination events place transform after sunset into purple and gold while you wine and dine in style at their fully-air-conditioned posh lounge inspired by the roaring 20’s Art Deco period.
I’ve been to the Penthouse 8747 in Makati, and I can say that Penthouse by the Bay is way bigger with a total capacity of 500 persons (standing) or 270 persons (seated). With former cruise liner Filipino Chef Michael Ginaro at the helm, Penthouse by the Bay brings some of the bestselling dishes from its first branch to the bay area.
The Penthouse Crab Cake (PHP 470) is a specialty dish that tastes amazingly fresh with blue crab meat, garlic, aioli, and remoulade sauce.
If you’re a raging carnivore and you know what you want in life, just ask for the Meat Lovers Pizza Bomb(PHP 370). It’s made with juicy pepperoni, Italian sausage, mozzarella, and tasty marinara. You can ask for any pizza flavor to be turned into this pizza cone. The cone is made of something like wanton. It’s fun to eat with Penthouse’s signature cocktails!
Everything about the Quattro Formaggi is delightful. From a hint of oregano to the bubbling crust, it’s a deadly foursome of cheese with an irresistible glaze of honey.
The ancient Romans documented Fresh Spicy Mussels (PHP 290) as aphrodisiacs in the second century AD. Pair these peppery bad boys with a glass of either tropical white or rosé and you’ve got yourself a sure fire formula for a delicious hot date.
The Chicken Florentine (PHP 390) is made with caramelized onion, mashed potatoes, buttered vegetables. It’s strong, creamy, and has a slightly spicy flavor that mellows and sweetens.
The Seafood Risotto (PHP 370) is consistently creamy with the right amount of squid, mussel, shrimp, and cream butter Parmesan.
The Dark Chocolate Cheesecake (PHP 270) is chocolate-y sweet made of chocolate sauce flambé that looks lava cake and tastes like creamy indulgent cheese.
Forget the stressful work week and pair your delicious meals with bottles of rosé and Bordeaux! You can drown yourself in wine with breathtaking views of Manila Bay, then look behind you and realize that you have traveled back in time to the era of expressionism, prosperity and dissipation, jazz bands, bootleggers, raccoon coats, and bathtub gin.
