The Curator

50Best Accolades

Third-wave coffee by day and kick-ass cocktails by night is a winning combination, judging by the popularity of this cool bar. Staff treat ingredients with the utmost respect, whether it’s coffee beans or small-batch spirits, attracting a young, up-for-it crowd of cocktail lovers and caffeine fiends. There is a bright café at the front, but the back remains intimate and cosy – a clever trick considering the Spartan polished concrete and blonde wood design. Try the signatures #StillHurting, Under Pressure and Kiban Sour. The Curator is also named The Best Bar in the Philippines 2020, sponsored by illycaffè.
