Best to hang out here with your loved ones from sunset until midnight, starting with cocktails, followed by a steak dinner, then entertainment in the music lounge before the wind-down at the whiskey bar. The quality of the food and the wine are quite good but we have to go back to have a proper dinner at The Peak Grill. https://flic.kr/p/2c2aUfj THE PEAK 60th-62nd Floor, Grand Hyatt Manila, 8th Avenue corner 35th Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig Operating Hours: Dinner (6:00 -10:00 PM) (Note: Kids are allowed at the grill but are not allowed at the bar.)
