Black Hole Bar Review – Mango Avenue, Cebu – by Foreigner & The Chinese

Black Hole Outside


Mango Avenue, next to “Sisters” and “Asian Flower” – basically next to all the other “naughty bars” and on the other side of the road from “Papillon”


2/5 uhummmm… Immediately after entering the black hole, my first question to ask was “my God, are you OK?, was anyone killed in the explosion?”

Black Hole Outside


2/5 Whilst appearing to be one of the cheapest bars in Mango, it’s really not that cheap


? Cant really say much either way – not much effort seems to be put in to this bar – although it’s name is surprisingly accurate

Girls Looks

1/5 Not so hot, girls in the bar seem tired and old – this really is not the liveliest or best of bars, more of a “black hole” – no one could accuse of false advertising

Black Hole Outside


3/5 Actually, the attitude of the girls are OK, although during their journey into the black hole – whilst this bar definitely has not gone forward in time, indeed, some of the girls do seem to be approaching infinite mass…

Fun Factor

2/5 Yes – if you like to lock yourself in a dark cupboard with your grandmother, you are in for a hoot!


2/5 These reviews are impartial, so don’t have a go at me for being honest about my own opinion. Noted that customers seem to be drawn by some strange force off the street off mango on the way in, although seemed to approached the speed of light on the way out..

    To sathya,
    3 girls you want – you’re not asking much!
    You give them hotel food and bonus you’re too kind. They’d want a big bonus to put up with you and your hide that every rhinocerous in Africa would be proud of.

    The place was big and friendly – clean and cool – comfortable – we went back a few times because of the bullshit the other premises girls were saying – (u pay P2000 or P1700 to ther bar and u pay me also) – that comes to P3000 and why go to the phil for a girl at$100 –
    Hot rods were good – P1700 – bar got P700 girl P1000 – non of this other lies like papallion and vikings.
    Oh also i quite sure the vikings bar man ripped my friend off – we paid P500 initailly for drinks to clear the tab – then even after a few ladies drinks only – about 15 mns later – he gave us a bill for P1300 – as if we had drunk that much – many of the reciepts werent signed either.
    We didnt go back after that and the bullshit proices the ladies were saying – we only went to HOT RODS – it wasnt worth going any where else

  13. Jon P says:

    Was there last week – its now HOTRODS and has 2 bars at either end of the premises – its the best place in cebu and the best value – the floor manager was a nice philippino guy and the ladies were good looking – its has nice new couches – doesnt so dark and sleazy as the BH .
    The main bar is excllent and i was able to get the barman to make flaming lambourgini for me – top shelf rocket fuel ……for P500 only
    Prices were P1700 for the girl – all inclusive – i think there has been some pressure from the police to ban bar fines in cebu – or maybe they just want to make sure the turn over paid for a girl is recorded through the bar but now all money paid for a girl is reciepted as buying drinks and many other premises girls said the whole bar fine was for the bar only and u pay them also ( ie Vikings and Papillion ) .
    At HOTRODS it was business as usual no bullshit – P1700 take home = pay the girl taxi fare only after wards.

  19. tomkat2000 says:

    When Black Hole first opened (2003?) it was the hottest bar in Cebu. Now all my friends say the place really sucks. Sad but I still have my memories of the lovely Raquel……….

  20. Cebuexpat says:

    Black Hole and Asian Flower cannot be great still considering that they are now closed and replaced by Hot Rod

  21. Ken (Daddy) says:

    Black Hole Rocks….I always have a blast. Asian Flower too. It was great when Martin owned and it still is great. Everyone know’s me and I will be back in July 09. Is John manager there now? Please reply here if you know me.

  23. eddyboy says:

    There is an improvement in Hot Rod compared to when it was black hole but that would not be hard to do. B H had a really bad assortment of girls and the last time I was there right before it was sold they did not have one goodlooking girl there. Now they are with Tina the former mamasan at a place called Blue Angels on escario. That is one of the worce bikini bars I have ever been in, which figures since it is run and owned by a Pinoy. Small unfriendly and you can not see the stage from the bar which is really a service bar anyway. Back to Hot Rods, I am not impressed with the rediculous prices…. and the girls are nothing special. “Tourist Trap”

  24. Bill A Ausi on April 1 2009 says:

    Black hole is Hot Rod, Much better now. New and clean, and lots of fun with the girls. Good food too.

  25. Bill A Ausi on April 1 2009 says:

    To far out of the way. I thought the Mamasan was a Suma Wrestler. The girls are to old now. Not as much fun as in the past.

  26. fred from dubai says:

    blackhole is good the girl is not old…they have old but not all……

  27. Carlos of USA says:

    Hot Rods girls are hot, best and newest bar in Cebu. Very nice. Now know where to go. Blackhole was a dumb, very dirty, know very nice. Good the mamaasan and old girls left, now have nice mamaasan and girls.

  28. Mc Chicken says:

    Then original Blackhgole girls and mamasan Tina is now working in a new bikini bar called Blue Angels Bikini Bar in Escario Street, Capitol near McDonalds. For anyone looking for those great girls from Blackhole this is the place to find them.

  29. Lobster says:

    Yes – alot better. Black hole patay!

  30. Candyman says:

    Apparently Black Hole has now been sold, and under new management. It has also been renamed Hotrod. Seems like there might be some sort of imnprovement to the bar and the atmosphere.

  31. Chris says:
