Bunk Rooftop Bar

Bunk is located on the 8th floor of Jovan Bldg. along Shaw Blvd. in Mandaluyong. It is the perfect place to unwind and relax in, after a long day's work. It’s an open space and it’s pretty chill up there even though it’s amidst the bustling city. It has a very nice ambience with the city traffic's noises far in the background. Bunk has the kind of hidden treasure vibe in it because it is pretty hard to find. There aren't any signs nor posters indicating which building is Jovan Building. This actually adds to the appeal of the Bunk because of the essence of secrecy and exclusivity of the place. The owner of Bunk, Francine Delos Reyes, is an HRIM graduate of De La Salle – College of St. Benilde but ever since, she has been very fond of art and music. They just opened the place last April 2015 and since then a lot of young people and young artists have been visiting the place. The usual crowd ranges from college students to professionals. People from all over metro have been coming to Bunk, artists and young people from north to south. The concept of Bunk was inspired from Francine's trips to Germany. She fell in love with the ambiance of the place. She wanted a change in scenery – from the usual crowded bars and noisy, chaotic surroundings to a chill, open space that's good for catching up or even for dates.

Bunk also holds events and activities for art and music enthusiasts. They have poetry readings, acoustic band nights, independent film nights, and even art battles. Some artists even contributed to the artworks and murals in Bunk. Anyone who is interested to contribute his or her work is actually welcome to paint on their walls. The place can also be rented for private events – like hosting art workshops or gallery shows. Their menu is also Germany-inspired. They offer Bratkartoffeln, a German dish of cottage potatoes with bits of bacon and slices of onion, as well as delicious, juicy burgers. They also have other dishes like sisig and nachos. Their food and beverages are very affordable. You can get a bucket of beer for only 250php. What more can you ask for? It’s affordable, it’s secluded, and it has a certain vibe to it. So if you're looking for a nice place to take away the stress, head over to Bunk.
