Hyde Manila's unique concept will take you to a place hidden underground adorned with lush greens and in harmony with nature. The staff will greet you warmly and lead you to a different area just a short distance from the dresser-inspired entryway. The entrance door, which greets guests with a family wardrobe, accentuates the nostalgic theme. Hyde Manila has thoughtfully curated a broad range of music genres to play as a background chill vibe for a great night out.  If we were to ask, the playlist atmosphere should usually go up a little bit depending on the night, and then they should learn how to read a bar audience or play music that draws people in without going too far. It's okay to pair mellow pop, jazz, funk, soul, and occasionally percussion-heavy electronic dance music (EDM) with bar requirements. Without a doubt, the location is ideal for relaxing after a long day at work or for spending a special evening with friends in a secret location. Hyde is always available to help with recommendations, and they are happy to offer advice as well as the best drinks to round out the evening.
