Balibago, Angeles City, Philippines

Some of these side street clubs can be fun, if you know where to go. They are great places to watch the girls dance and drink cheap San Miguel beers. The smaller clubs like Bar Hoppin are just perfect to get away from the hustle and bustle of Fields Avenue in full action. Drink prices, ladies drinks and barfines all seem to be cheaper in the smaller clubs. Bar Hoppin is no exception.
Bar Hoppin is located on Constantine Street, just south of Fields Avenue. The Angel Witch club sits on the corner of Fields Avenue and Constantine, and behind it sits the Back Door Bar, Butterfly Rock, Bar Hoppin and Checkers Bar. They are all relatively small clubs, pretty straight forward, with stage, bar, seating and pool tables. The stage/bar is unique, as it is curved, which gives a nice look to the entire bar. The girls dance up on the stage at the bar, while there is ample seating around the club to get some great views.
Bar Hoppin is open at 5:00pm daily and closes around 2:00am. You'll find around 60 or so dancers. A San Miguel Beer will set you back 75p and a ladies drink is a cheap 140p. The barfine is only 1350p, which is pretty competitive compared to the other clubs in Angeles City.

Nestled among other bars like Bar Hopping, Butterfly Bar, and the Roadhouse Bar is a medium sized tradional club called Angel Witch. Previous bar names to occupy this space include Private Dancer and Illusions. It's your common bar layout, with a stage along one side of the bar, and seating to the other side. You can pull up a stool right next to the stage to get a "Bird's Eye View" of the bargirl/dancer action. The club has it's compliment of cute Filipina bargirls dancing on stage during the evening. Girls will grace the stage in two shifts, with regular dance routines performed for some added entertainment. Food is also available from down the street - Kokomo's, which is pretty nice food. If you're into billiards, the club has a pool table to occupy your time.
This is a great club to go have a cheap drink and relax, while you plan your attack on the rest of Angeles City. If you ask most people about this club, they like it. Nearly 64% of those recipients polled said that they rate this club ABOVE AVERAGE - Four Stars. It's a drinking man's kind of club, and more traditional in style. If you're into FLAIR and HIGH END, this is not the place. However, we can recommend this club, because so many other patrons love the club and continue to go back. You'll be sure to find a cute bargirl on stage to have a drink and possibly barfine. There are lots of girls on stage during the evening, and the place has some nice BAR energy that keeps patrons coming back for more.
