22nd Street Cebu Reviews
May 07, 2006
22nd Street is a comedy bar located in mango avenue, cebu city. Its next to national book store (famous as it seems like its a landmark for students meetings). It accessible by jeepneys (local mode of transport)which cost around 6php from end to end wherever you stop in a paricular route. And of course taxi is the easiest - just insist on the meter and not a bargain price so you dont pay more. if youre taking your own car there is an available pay parking just behind the building at 20php per car.
Attire is casual, there is an entrance fee of 100php(2USD)and 2 beers that goes with it, so it doesnt really hit you as an entrance fee. The place is always full of laughing bunch of people and often they dont take reservations, so its better to come earlier than 9pm. There is a stage opposite to the entrance door where 5 gay entertainers are singing or acting. They are so funny that its normal to throw a fit of laughter non-stop all night. But there is one thing that you need to keep in mind. Choose your seat wisely, if you are the shy type - dont dare sit in front of the stage, the gays are so daring that they will make you cry for the fun of it, sometimes they take you to the extremes as a subject for their joke, but if you're the bold and daring - then sit as close to the stage as possible. they will never miss you out. You can also sing with them on stage to complete your evening, but the entertainers are quite talented so, you have to level with them or on the extreme - be the opposite and people will cheer on. Or if you prefer to be on the backstage you can just write your favourite song on the napkin provided on your table and the entertainers will sing it for you after calling your your name out loud or addressing your table and making you stand and bow to the public.
This place is highly recommended. must visit when you're in Cebu...believe me you will be laughing even when youre driving back home.
