New must-go-to bar in Ortigas

By Mon Guinto
Philippine Daily Inquirer

Last updated 23:18:00 12/05/2008

I WAS a bit nervous going up the stairs to this new Ortigas hangout. Karen, my perpetual drinking partner, told me the place looked great. The bar did look very nice, but what got me sweating was that it looked pricey-nice and I only had about 600 bucks with me.

Located along Julio Vargas Street (beside the row of establishments lining the Ortigas Home Depot area), Bargos, though barely three weeks old, is quietly creating a strong following.

Though half-empty when we arrived at 9:30 p.m., the place was packed from 11 up to the time we left, which was about two in the morning. Among the bars in the area, Bargos stands out because it looks upscale. Designed by Jennie de Dios, the place has two floors: the ground level, which reminds me of a friend?s lanai (albeit decked in blue neon lights), and the second level, which is a study in black and white simplicity.

The food choices are your basic bar fare and after checking out the menu, I heaved a huge sigh of relief. Despite the high-end interiors, the prices are actually very friendly. We tried the Calamares (battered and cooked just right), the Mushrooms ŗ la Jillo (a bit salty), Crispy Hito (ok), and Sisig Bargo (supposedly their grilled version with egg?pass the rice, please). We also had the Beer Tower, which is a curious beer-dispensing contraption that can effectively yield the equivalent of five to six beers.

After about five hours and four Beer Towers, we decided to call it a night. Among the six of us, we barely spent 2,000 bucks for all the drinks and food. I went home happy with some cash left in my pocket.
