NoKal (a.k.a. “North of Kalayaan”), is a relatively new spot in the heart of Poblacion. Conceptualized by Marco Viray, NoKal joins the family of cool places to hang in Poblacion alongside Ebi10, Kampai and Joe’s Brew.
NoKal has 3 floors and they currently feature retro fast food style offerings on the first floor:
Longganisa Mac (PHP 300)
Cheeseburger (PHP 295) – 160g of USDA Beef
Nokal Steak Rice (PHP 295) – 100g of Angus Beef
Hot Wings (PHP 200/ 6 pcs, PHP 390/ 12 pcs)
The second floor a dark lit joint, thumping with beats for the Makati’s restless wildlife, and features a bar with signature cocktails for refreshments. Here are some that we chose to name a few:
Kampai Highball (PHP 300) -Suntory Kakobin Whiskey, Soda, Optional Flavors
Sex And The City (PHP 300) – Tequila, Blood Orange Syrup, Lemon, Pinch of Salt, Sour Candy
Dear Irving (PHP 300) – Old fashioned with Don Papa Cold Brew Coffee, Chocolate Pretzel
The third floor is a breezy place with a special view of Poblacion for those who want to just “chill”. It features an al fresco lounge and a bar with Joe’s Brew on tap.
NoKal is a tight spot considered as a hidden gem by those who have wandered the busy streets of Poblacion. They’re open from 18:00-04:00 on weekdays and 18:00-02:00 on weekends. People usually spend 1.5-3 hours here and they’re busiest on Fridays and Saturday.
