Popular bar in Makati with live bands for retro music Jul 29, 2015
Strumm's is a retro bar popular with the Manila crowd and expatriates that has live band music every day of the week except Sundays. From jazz to disco and rock, the bands have their own following from the urban professionals to groups having reunions.

It is located along busy Jupiter Street in Makati, a little over a kilometer from the central business district. Parking is a challenge as they only have a few slots in front of their building, but there is a valet service for a small fee which will get your car parked on a nearby street.

There is a strict no-slippers dress code - one of the groups I was with was turned away once because somebody was wearing slippers. But we have been able to bring guests in and they were wearing casual shorts and walking sandals.

There is a cover charge of about Php 400 - which is consumable and a reasonable amount for a few beers or finger foods like nachos. The more of you in the group, the better the deal because you can order margaritas and mojitos by the pitcher which comes out cheaper than individual servings.

The band performs in one of the corners by the stage, and in front is a dance floor. Patrons also dance upstairs on the loft overlooking the stage as the acoustics are good enough to be heard throughout the establishment.

This is a highly recommended venue to visit primarily for the live music but the food and drinks are also good enough and reasonably priced. We've brought a few TravBuddy groups here during meetups and all of them have been quite happy with the experience.

Great place for a party Dec 25, 2014
I had a fabulous party time at this place when I visited Manilla just after Christmas 2014. TB Nolan had arrange a meet-up i Manilla and this place was the finale one of the evenings. The place was crowded which is a good sign when we entered but even though we were a large group we after some time manage to get a corner for us self on the first floor. For here we had a good view of the band that played on the stage - and which by the way were quite okay.

The service was great and swift but the best thing was the atmosphere that was created. Everybody had fun and the music were really good and positive. It was a wonderful night.

This was an enjoyable night, even if we were a big group of almost 20. I've included Strumm's among the venues for the Philippines meetup in April 2016.
