Subic Bay is like any other place that has a lot of bars in a small area what is easy to move to and from.  So with all the bars with girls dancing on one street the guys move from place to place until they can't continue on and head home in the early hours of the morning and some with a smile on their face a girl under their arm.

A few things I really like about the Barrio Barretto (Subic) area is you will find many different bars in the way of set up and size. If you just want a place to relax and have a few beer you have the resort hotel and several small bars to visit. Added to that is that the whole area has a really relaxed feel to it which makes you stay more enjoyable. The managers of the bars that I meet have all been very helpful and more then friendly. With all these things added together how could you not have a great time?

Jim and I at Bar Barretto

Are you the type that likes to hit the go-go clubs early in the afternoon, no problem there are several of them that open around 1pm and have dancers starting shortly afterwards. Maybe you are a late night person, 4am sounds like a good time to head home. Can't sleep, no problem you can grab a drinking at one of the 24 hours places on National Highway or in Baloy Beach and have a great meal at the same time. Into sports, swing in the Baloy Beach area and there is a bar there that has shows shorts all the time for your enjoyment and yes a pool tables too! Pool parties and weekly dance contest, oh yeah we have them also.

From Arizona Hotel on National Highway to the Baloy Long Beach Road it will take you about 15 to 20 minutes depending on how slow you stroll down the street. (see the Scenic movie section for 2 clips of walking along the street)

With each different club you really have to drop in have a drink or 2 and check the place out, never just look at the outside and think what it is like on the inside. For me some of the smaller bars with or without dancers in them are where I had the most fun with the girls but that is just me!

Over all my trips to the area I never really found any bar so packed I couldn't get a seat which is a good thing. It’s nice not having to fight your way thought a crowed to find a seat plus it means most of the time there are more girls then guys so the pickings are pretty good of you are looking for some company. If you spot a little honey and she is busy, just sit tight chances are the guy she is with could be just bar hopping and will be heading out soon so you have the opportunity to check her a bit closer.

Now that I am living in Barrio Barretto I will have the chance to add a lot more information on the bar life over the many nights to come!

One reason I do this is because the bigger and well know clubs that have a web site so I tend to cover the smaller places which can be a lot of fun too but on a different level. I mean after all there is enough information about what is happening in the well know places, right? So why cover the little hole in the wall? With and small number of bars in the area I will be in all of them over time and do my write ups and take my pictures on all of them over time.

The smaller bars should have their chance to get exposure too. That is just me!

List of bars in Barrio Barretto and Baloy Beach [ Here ] Updated August 2016

Note: If you are a club owner or see a place missing form the list please Email me the information and I will be happen to add you the list.

Update 12 Aug 2012

Several new bars have open in the area, the main ones being Buccaneers' and Lollipops both having dancers along with several others smaller places.

Some places have closed or moved to new location so all those maps of the bars you see out there may be out dated now. Here is where the small size of the clubbing area helps because you can easily find all the bars with a little walking.


Feb 3 2013

Short Update on the bars in town;

Escape Bar moved across the street and is now called Salty Dog, a much nicer place then the old bar with a stage in the middle so the girls can be viewed up close and from all angles.

Hot Zone closed on the First of February but is moving to a the location where Escape Bar was when the building is completed sometime in March 2013 so the girls moved to other bars in the area for now.

Rum Jungle and Lollipop are closed due to a fire that happen but should be open soon everyone hopes since the damage was not that bad to both places. The fire also included the closure of the Dryden Hotel.


UPDATE MAY 2015 - Day time bars with dancers are – Scores bar, Seaman, Dusk Till Dawn, T Rose (the beach bar) and Sweethearts.

Other day time bars are –  Hooyah, VFW, General Outpost, Dynamite Dicks, Alley Cat, Allies and Midnight Rambler.

All three floating bars, Arizona, Blue Rock and Treasure Island are still in operation for while more.

18 Sept 2013 update:

Since I have not been out to the bar all I can do now is tell you what have open and reopen.

First is T Rose (the Beach Club) it has re-open again on the first of September who know for how long this time. Being a day time bar it is open from 12 noon to 8pm from my understanding and it has dancers like before.

After that is the Alaska Bar which opened up in the old Wet spot location.


I hope to get out and visit the new bars soon but with the baby well it makes it kind of hard to go party now.

Hot Zone is now open at 3pm ( this is an old picture)

Count Nikolas Bar the newest bar in Subic

Dec 2013

The biggest news on the bars in Barrio Barretto is that starting this month the Drydens group of clubs has removed the need to pay the bar to take the girl out while she is still working. All the details are not fully know as the management wishes to keep that part quiet but now all that is required for the girl to leave work with you is that you sign a paper stating that she is leaving on her own free will and nothing was paid to the bar for her to depart. No one knows how this will work out in the long run but one thing is for sure and that is that it clears the bars of and signs of wrong doing. Once the girl leaves what happens after that is all on them.


Coco Lips took over Bar Barretto after some remodeling was done.

17 March 2015 Update

1. Subic Cafe has changed again, guess no one can make a go of the bar since it keeps changing names all the time


Aug 2015 - 1020 club closed and renamed Paradise, the new bar opens at 2pm has a pool table and GRO's


Bar for rent as of 21 November 2015

Rapscallion. It's basically a turnkey operation. Everything is there; furniture, air conditioning, fans, lighting, sound system, music computer, CCTV, etc. Those remain our property. The only thing the tenant needs is staff and stock.

The fine print:

Rent P76,000 a month (utilities not included). 2 months rent and 2 months security in advance. Rental payments will be monthly after that.

If desired, we will handle credit card purchases.

The tenant will have to rename it.

At his option, the bar can remain part of SOB.

We have space available at our stay-in.
