Promenade through Greenbelt Makati City Reviews
Jan 16, 2008
A must-see if you’re in Makati City, Philippines.
Greenbelt is the centerpiece of Ayala Center. It’s busy and vibrant with people who want to shop, dine, be entertained or just stroll. Not just another mall, it has its own park, Catholic church and museum, and consists of five areas:
Greenbelt 1 : QSRs, 2 cinemas, National Bookstore, Rustan’s grocery, Watson’s, etc.
Greenbelt 2 :bars and restaurants (Nuvo, Mezze, Cyma, Italianni’s)
Greenbelt 3 : Marks and Spencer, upscale shops, cafes (Starbucks, Seattle’s, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf), bars (Café Havana, Absinthe), and entertainment (Music One, Red Box, 6 cinemas with THX)
Greenbelt 4 : Ayala Museum, Power Books, more designer shops (Prada, Louis Vuitton). Greenbelt 4 is connected by walkway to Landmark Department store, which also connects with Glorietta, another huge mall.
Newly opened Greenbelt 5, is still only partly occupied, but houses top Filipino designers for home and fashion, and more upscale shops and restaurants.
Greenbelt is walking distance from major hotels (Renaissance New World, Shangri-La), condos/condotels, etc. I walk through Greenbelt every weekday to get to my ride home, because my office is just near Greenbelt 1. There’s usually something going on at Greenbelt, whether a film festival (French in May, Spanish in October) or a concert/event/exhibit fronting the park.
