Frolics Bar Review: Lapu lapu, Cebu – by Foreigner & The Chinese

Name : Frolics


Turn right after going over the “Old Bridge” (I think) – Need to get proper directions- maybe Google maps? – cant remember EXACTLY where this one is, but pretty sure you drive to Opon, keep going and it’s on the right


3/5 Looks like a mini “Mango” bar! Simple layout, nice little bar for drinking at and seats dotted around. You can sit nice and close to the dance floor whilst still being amongst the girls, unlike a lot of bars. This is probably one of the best Mactan bars for foreigners – not so many Korean or Japanese. Chat to the girls or chill out and have `a few drinks. Pleasant, easy going bar to unwind in – but not as raucous or wilds as some!

3/5 Just like Mango! Interestingly, you’d expect the Mango bars to be the most expensive of them all – considering the location, but strangely most of them are not. For some unknown reason, that no one has been able to explain to me yet, the Filipino bars and downtown bars are normally MORE expensive that the main bars located on Mango – what the devil is that all about! Frolics, luckily, is a “mango” priced bar – perhaps the same owner as as a few of the bars in Mango. Just like Mango, ladies drinks around the 170+ mark and a San Miguel Light at 65. Bar fine is 1700. 700 to the bar and rest to the girl – didn’t used to be paid in advance, but perhaps things have changed. OK place to stop off for a couple before moving on, or perhaps winding down after a busy night out.


Absolutely no idea – seems OK in there so I’m not going to moan. I have my suspicions that it’s the same owner as some of the “not so good” bars on Mango, perhaps this one is far enough away to persevere its own and maintain its own secret, better atmosphere. Mamasan is a little pushy, but in a light-hearted way.

Girls Looks

3/5 – OK, not really the “beauties of the Southern Jewel” – mostly 2s and 3s, but there’s a few really nice and friendly girls in there that make it worth a visit. My review may be a little unfair in that all visits have been towards the end of the night – be interesting to go in a little earlier – more remarkable specimens maybe be available for study!

can i sit beside you?


4/5 Most girls seems friendly and are happy to chat. Lots of smiles, jokes and general friendliness – leads to nice atmosphere and pleasant, relaxed environment. Girls generally seem to notice you and are seem pleased that you are there, sounds obvious, but is not always the case!

Fun Factor

3/5 Not massive fun factor – this bar is not a raving house of naughtiness, but it’s still nice oi!

Foreigner Says

Nice little inexpensive friendly place, worth a look and ok for foreigner. Get there early for best girls, or arrive later to chill out with a few SMLs.

    Love. It isn’t very popular in technical circles to say a lot of mushy stuff about love, but frankly it’s a very very important part of what holds our project together.

    man …there was this girl here named angel … i had some of the best sex ever with her

  3. Gordon says:

    I have been going here for years and have found the owner Bill to be a great guy. Yes Marlyn is a doll as is Maricel. The best times I have had have been sitting and drinking all night with the owner and then get up to leave and discover it was actually tomorrow.

  4. Jonathan says:

    It’s not a bad little bar, the drinks are expensive and the girls are way below average. The girls are not required to have a health card and a girl named Justin gave me a STD so be careful.

  5. Kanung says:

    the owner Bill is well known in the ex pat community of Cebu as the most tight guy with money your ever met in your life. Bill charges you to piss in the toilet.
    The former GF though Marlyn the manager is wonderful person. You could not meet a filiina who is nicer, except for perhapps Maricel

    I visited this place in February 2010. It seemed to be abandoned by all girls, there was just one girl pretty sticky… My stay lasted as long as my beer.

  12. danny says:

    I was very disappointed during my first and only visit. The quality of the girls were sadly lacking and most definitely not worth the price of a taxi ride from Cebu City. If you go here, you may very likely be the only customer in the place and friendly (yet unattractive IMO) girls will surround you looking for drinks. Don’t misunderstand, the girls have nice attitude and eager to ask you all the typical “where you from” questions. But unless you desire to waste money on drinks for the mamasan and girls hovering around, I found little reason to stay longer than my beer lasted. Drink up quick and go try a hole-in-da-wall club on Mactan called “Evening Bar” where there is usually at least one cute girl to enjoy in the short time rooms in back.

  13. CanaDave says:

    I found this one to be too expensive for me. Not that it is hugely expensive but there are so many lower cost places. It is worth a visit if you are staying in the area but I would not go out of my way to visit there again.

    Your mileage may vary.

    How to find the place…
    Go over the old bridge, then straight on DONT TURN go past More and its right there a short way away on the same side of the street…
    Easy once you know.
    Prices are good, amd ladies drinks are cheap, like 170???. Been there when the girls are cute and then again thats not always true…Once you buy them a drink and tease them a little yhey will get freindly, and may even “show you” some interesting south of the border things…They are always friendly and you dont need to ask for someone as they will just come over. Bar fines are cheap enough, but they have a rule that you need to buy one ladies drink also.
    Try the place you may like it.

  17. danny says:

    how exactly to find this place?
    need directions please. thanks

  18. BIG RICHIE says:

    FROLICS is a nice place. a little laid back. but some cuties mixed in the crowd. the owner is some guy from washington state. he’s pretty cool. bought me and a friend a beer

  19. Zakstraw says:

    Thanks for all the info. Been here for two months and have had to rely on “friends” at the hotel to find some of these places.
    Liked the Arena, but expensive. Silver dollar reminds me of a bar back home in Philly, with the exception of the dancers.
    Wish i had found your site 2 moths ago!
