Since it’s situated in the middle of the CBD, Legaspi Village is one of the busiest spots in Makati City, but it still has a few hidden gems that you can try to ease up on yourself and treat your palate with good food and drinks!

Voila! Here are some of the best F&B spots near Acceler8 Legazpi:

The Curator

A marriage between coffee and cocktail. Possible?

Yes, in fact, that’s how they stood out from the rest of the bars…or cafés in the city. Their menu is simple yet spectacularly beautiful that they were in Asia’s 50 best bars in 2016. The Curator is café during the day and transforms in what we call a “speakeasy” 6:30 PM onwards.  

What to try: Everything. 

Address: Unit 2, 1st Floor, Legaspi Park View Condominium. C. Palanca Street, 
Corner Legaspi Street, Legazpi Village, Makati City
