MAKATI SKYLINE. 71 Gramercy in Makati - A leap to premium nightlife with skyline that is breath-taking.

MAKATI SKYLINE. 71 Gramercy in Makati – A leap to premium nightlife with skyline that is breath-taking.

If you are looking and searching for up-scale New York type premium clubbing, 71 Gramercy is, would be our recommended place. 71 Gramercy is a New York-style bar/lounge/restaurant on the 71st floor of Manila‘s highest residential skyscraper, the Gramercy Residences along the newly developed Century City in Kalayaan Ave. cor. Salamaca St., Makati City.

Last night (from 9 PM – 1 AM, Manila time) was our first call to see 71 Gramercy, up-close on a quite windy evening atmosphere together with the PB Network (Philippine Bloggers Network) group organized by Rafael Pekson II and through the invitation of Fran Oliva, PR/Host, 71 Gramercy for the Monday Night Sparklers event. DJ Rico Arce, Fran‘s husband, spins on a Monday with 90s mix. The couple are part of I Love MNL (My Night Life) where Fran promotes not only the bars and clubs she handles but the good, clean, fun night life in Metro Manila.

We were surprised that one of the owners of 71 Gramercy is GP Reyes, club owner, restaurateur, and Century Properties creative director. Actually we weren’t surprised on GP ‘coz we already heard his achievements before. What surprised us, is that, Andi Manzano-Reyes was there! Oh yeah! She’s now a Reyes. That broke your hearts, radio fans?

Andi and GP tied the knots sometime last year, and yeah, Andi is the wife of GP. FYI.

71 Gramercy is just a walk distance away from the equally popular A. Venue that catapulted Makati Avenue into premier nightlife destination before The Fort in Taguig even established.

TIGHT. Our attempt to capture The Fort from the 71st floor of Gramercy Residences in Makati.

And for the ladies, dress to impress. 71 Gramercy has been rated 4.5 out 5 on TripAdvisor and ranked No. 132 out of 900 restaurants in Makati. 71 Gramercy is open from Mondays – Saturdays from 6 PM – 10 PM for dining & 10 PM onwards for the lounge. For table reservations, you may call +639178477535 | +639178094093.
