If you and your friends have an affinity for the 50s, then you wouldn’t find a better place than Filling Station. Once you open the door, you’ll feel like you’ve left 2018 with their neon lights, old school memorabilia, and even a retro muscle car. The best part is that they’re open 24 hours a day so you and your busy bee pals wouldn’t have a difficult time setting a schedule.

“I hate bacon”, says no one ever. For the meat-loving bunch, the Lazy Bastard was surely made with you in mind. They have bacon in almost all of their food -hamburgers, hotdogs, and What have you. Contrary to its name, patrons will feel alive and well once they take a bite. To cap off the experience, head over for drinks at Prohibition era themed ABV – the secret bar hidden inside this Jupiter gem.

Lazy Bastard is located at Basement Floor, 22 Jupiter Street, Makati City
