Metro Manila · The Scene & HotDots
HotDots are very similar to HotSpots but encompass a smaller geographical region. While a HotSpot might be as big as a whole village, a HotDot might only be two great bars at a certain street corner. Here again, HotDots feature places which have been hand-picked by the Megacities team to meet the requirements of what a Megacitizen might want to be looking for.
McKinley Hill is one of the centrally planned developments in Fort Bonifacio, housing offices of many major BPO companies as well as a still growing number of condominium towers. The Tuscany Private Estates and the Venice Piazza give the place a Mediterranean flair.
Never heard of Tomas Morato before? Then it is time to go there! The HotDot is located in the north of the Megacity Manila, more specifically in Quezon City. Whenever you are up for something a bit more adventurous outside of your comfort zone in Makati or the Fort, Tomas Morato will most certainly welcome you.
Rockwell Center is a fancy mixed-use project that features some nice bars, restaurants, and coffee shops centered around the upscale Powerplant Mall. The rather green area is located conveniently near the gated communities of Bel-Air and other prime locations which offer a lot of space to live for the Megacitizens of Makati City.
This HotDot combines things you expect to find in Makati and things you definitely do not expect to find in Makati. The western corner of Makati (San Antonio Village) hosts not only a selection of international restaurants, wine stores and shops selling delicacies such as fresh meat and cheese from all over the world – but also alternative music.
A Mediterranean-style shopping and entertainment complex in the center, surrounded by high-rise condominium and office towers: Eastwood City gives the impression of a secluded and glitzy world of its own. It has been launched in 1997 as a community that combines living, working, and leisure. Here are some of the places you should not miss in Eastwood, more are soon to follow.
You want awesome live music experience in a place far away from the crowded and busy districts of the Megacity? Get on a cab and go to Quezon City.
Before Makati became the central business district of Megacity Manila, it was the city of Manila (which is one of the cities within Metro Manila) that served as the business hub. In the heart of Manila lies Malate, a cozy and somewhat graciously aged part of the city. Malate has everything that you need for an enjoyable night out with the guys or gals.
