Bulldog KTV Bar Review: Cebu, City by Foreigner and The Chinese
Bulldog KTV Bar, Reclamation
Sadly Lacking – better just to call the police, you’ll want to afterwards!
Just up the road from Parkmall, which is up the road from SM – on the way to the flashy conference centre – Hmmm, Google maps desperately needed I think. You gotta get the lift up into the bar (3rd floor), which opens out into the bar – that’s about the coolest thing about the bar.
3/5 Pretty good layout – nothing amazing. Typical modern bar arrangement. Comfortable sofa type chairs looking onto the stage area. This is quite a plush bar – but like I say, not amazing. Drinks bar itself is quite nice – but there is a lot of formal and stiff looking staff, lingering around like the cunning lingus itself! Sitting at the bar is just NOT the place to be. The place has the feel of an Japanese/Korean bar. It say’s it’s a KTV bar, but it’s more like Arena – in that it has KTV facilities (I didn’t see them), but is not really a full on KTV bar like infinity for instance. The bar is quite light inside as well, the sort of place where you sit down and don’t make to much fuss – definitely would not have gone down if I had got up to some of my Boang human jousting antics! Can’t see it getting too popular with Yanks and Ozzies wanting to chat and mess about. More like – “sit down, shut up & we may not ask you to leave..”
0/5 Hahaha – this place is the most expensive and worse value Bar in Cebu – possibly the world!. Overpriced is an understatement. The prices are ridiculous, but then again – what does that make me for paying them haha! FYI – The girl I met asked me to bring her some Jolibee to munch on, being a gent – I obliged of course. I was then charged a 200 Peso corkage fee – Check this out!
|Ladies Drink (every 30 mins) x 5 (PHP350 each)||PHP 1,750|
|Man Drink x 5 (PHP75 Each)||PHP 375|
|Ladies Charge (Payable on 1st drink)||PHP 150|
|Mamasan Drink (Payable on first ladies drink)||PHP 350|
|Bar Fine||PHP 6,000|
|Total for nights entertainment||PHP 9,525|
By the time you sit down and your first drink touches your mouth, you have got through entrance, 1st ladies drink, mamasan drink, lady charge and your drink, so 200 + 350 + 350 + 150 + 75 = 1125 peso!. As you can see, my final Bill was a few pesos shy of PHP10,000!
I must have had a great time for that right? Best to save yourself 10,000 and go to Jolibee instead or maybe the car wash – how about sight seeing at Mactan Airport? Absolutely the most over priced, under performing money waste in Cebu. Don’t take my word for it – go out see for yourself, lose more pounds in a few hours than a lechon fatman!
Management are polite enough – but pester the hell out of you. When you pay the bill, you kinda feel like you’ve been violated – not entertained! “Thank you sir, you’ve just been robbed – can I call you a taxi, or perhaps the police would be a better choice?”
3/5 A few very nice ones (may 7/10 or 8/10) , but a good deal of not so nice ones as well as the same girls that you met before when they worked in the other bars for a fraction of the costs – hmmm…
2/5 Money Money Money, you can almost feel your wallet being sucked out your trousers – not quite what I had in mind….
1/5 Hmmmmmm – about as funny as taking a long walk with one of the Mango beggers to discuss the finer points of cebu culture. Why not stay at home and go cockroach hunting instead? One of the girls whilst swinging around like a monkey all over the place managed to slip up and almost flew off stage – that got a few smiles, but apart from that – you’d be better heading off to the local library to get 500% increase in fun and excitement.
