The Social – Cebu’s Newest Café/Bar/Restaurant

The Social is Cebu’s newest all-in-one Café, Bar and Restaurant. It’s the brainchild of the people at Tadcaster Hospitality, who also operate several luxurious bars and restaurants in Singapore. It’s located in the new wing of Ayala mall in Cebu City, where previously the only hangout options were overcrowded coffee shops like Starbucks or the ultra-sleazy outdoor area of TGI Fridays. Thankfully The Social attracts a slightly classier crowd, which is in part due to it’s seemingly hidden location in the far corner of the 4th floor in the new wing and also it’s relatively higher cost compared to some local pinoy restaurants.

Liv Super Club, Time Square, Mandaue | Cebu Nightlife

Liv is the newest nightclub in Cebu, having only opened a few months ago. The crowd is a mix of expats and filipinos as you might expect, and the typical entrance fee is reasonable at 200 PHP, which includes a free drink. Previously, J Ave was the only known ‘Super Club’ in Cebu (more like super seedy), and so it was an ambitious project to persuade Mango Square’s regulars into making an extra effort to go all the way to Mandaue. However, they have succeeded with flying colours and once all the locals find out about this place, I doubt they’ll even give a second thought to Mango square again.

Where to Watch Football in Cebu

If you want to watch football in Cebu, but don’t know where to watch it, here is everything you need to know. There are several bars in Cebu where you can watch every football game and meet other expats, which I will tell you about in more detail further down. Evidently this blog post will be useful for anyone who wants to watch the World Cup in Cebu, but also for the 2014/2015 Premier League season which starts in August.
