While BGC is most known for beautiful condos for sale in the Fort, one of its hidden and newest gems is Uptown Bonfacio. Being on the edge of the city – on the northern part of 36th street – and surrounded by many tall buildings, the mall is easy to miss. However, paying a visit here is not just like visiting any other mall in the Philippines. It holds many unique establishments; many of which are firsts in Manila, the Philippines, or even Asia!
The First Denny’s in Manila
Denny’s is a breakfast favorite in the United States because of its hefty servings of the best morning meals! Whether it’s pancakes, milkshakes, sandwiches, etc., Denny’s is the place to go to have your kip up for the day. It’s great that Uptown Bonifacio has the very first branch ever to be established in the Philippines. Because of this, residents or owners of condos for sale in the Fort can enjoy satisfying breakfasts any time they want; either after morning walks and jogs or before a movie in Uptown.
St. Gabriel The Archangel Chapel
Uptown mall is not just a great place for recreational activities, but for connecting with your faith as well. On the top floor is St. Gabriel The Archangel Chapel; a beautiful chapel with a unique modern design because of its glass walls. This allows parishioners to see the wonder that is BGC in the background of the altar. It’s a symbolic way of showing that all that men have was brought upon them by the Lord’s will. Saying your prayers here will definitely remind you of your ambitious goals in the city and you will be reminded to offer all your efforts to your faith.
The Food Hall
What’s great about food halls and food courts is that they offer diners almost unlimited choices of food at affordable prices. Such places are common and even staples at malls, but very rarely do those offer an ambiance as cozy as what Uptown Bonifacio’s Food Hall has for its guests. It has a high ceiling, artsy decorations, and rustic and industrial furniture. Whoever said that a cheap meal has to be a cheap experience as well?
The food stalls located here include:
- Binondo Wok
- Pepper Lunch
- Steak Station
- YumiCraft Salad
- BKK Express
- Habitual Coffee
Salvatore Cuomo & Bar
Have you ever wanted to experience the award-winning Paul Bassett coffee? If yes, then you should head on over Salvatore Cuomo & Bar for your very first cup. If not really, then consider it as it offers a great experience; the establishment holds a classy emotion that’s perfect for you to enjoy the world-renowned caffeine drink. Whether it’s for a formal meeting, casual lunch, or a simple date with yourself, a visit to this bar will surely relax and pamper you.
The Only H&M Branch in Taguig and Other Firsts
