Cebu Bikini Bars
Part of the Cebu nightlife are the bars for men in Cebu. These are called 'Bikini Bars'. The basic idea is to have several women in bikinis dancing or talking with the customers.
These women (guest relations officers or GROs) are in the bar to earn money through a customer buying them a drink or the customer pays the bar a 'bar fine' to take the woman out of the bar.
If you are going to use the services of these bars and 'bar fine' a woman, it is recommended that you use a 'short-time hotel.' Two popular and clean short-time hotels are Queensland Hotel and Sogo Hotel.
Cebu nightlife is to be enjoyed, take this advice and you'll avoid any problems.
Arena is the biggest and most expensive bikini bar in Cebu. They usually have over 100 women and the dance show is a little more entertaining than other places.
Mango Avenue is where several of these types of establishments are located.
Club Temptation near Mango Avenue is a nice place with a relaxed atmosphere. It's a comfortable club for Cebu Nightlife with couches and usually good service. The staff is friendly, helpful and cheerful.
