Located at the 45th topmost level of Marco Polo Ortigas Manila, Vu’s Sky Bar and Lounge is redefining the night life scene in this side of the metro. Offering an unobstructed 180-degree of Manila. A perfect venue for your awaited chillax night.
Vu’s Sky Bar and Lounge Aperitivo is available every Thursday to Saturday from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM for P899.00 you may indulge in wide array of Italian appetizers and paired it with overflowing house wine and beer.
Chill inside the lounge or in the Al fresco area where you can fully see the view of the metro.
An Aperitivo is a pre-meal drink specifically meant to whet your appetite. A common thing for Italian, before they indulge in their dinner they usually have wines and appetizers to stimulate their palates. It is not supposed to replaced your dinner but in our case we got too full and drunk haha that we didn’t even think about having our dinner after.
Below are the line up of appetizers that we sampled during our visit:
Assorted Garden Greens
A bowl of fresh and crisp greens for the salad, it comes with three kinds of dressings-caesar, thousand and blue cheese.
Pair you artisan breads with the Marinated Olives, smooth and creamy Hummus or with the rich and smoky Babaganoush. I enjoyed the Hummus so much and I even added some cheese on it to make it special.
Marinated Olives with Anchovies, Chili and Lemon
Savory and salty in a good side, that’s how I described their Marinated Olives with Anchovies, Chili and Lemon. I can’t recall how many times I went back for these babies.
Assorted Cheese Platter
Any cheese lover will surely appreciate the cheese platter (my ears are clapping haha!). Imagine you can get unlimited slices of Brie, Manchego and Gouda. I took some cold cuts (ham, chorizo, salami and etc.) paired it with some cheese and wine (oh heaven!). I feel like I’m a certified Titas of Manila that time haha who doesn’t even care about the time. I guess I enjoyed it so much and same goes with my companion-hubby and our friend.
They also have salad as part of the buffet, the Fusili Salad and the Potato Macaroni Salad. Given that the pasta are both perfectly cooked I also love the simplicity of its dressings.
Potato Macaroni Salad
Again, Vu’s Sky Bar and Lounge offers overflowing wine and beer. I particularly like their red wine (2011 Canyon Road Cabernet Sauvignon) it has rich and flavorful hints of ripe raspberry and with a smooth finish.
In case you didn’t make it to the Aperitivo don’t worry as you can always order from their ala-carte menu.
