It’s Forever Summer In Our New Favorite Chill Spot!
Remember the Palace Pool Club? The first club in the country to have a functioning pool in the middle and the open air set-up was the backdrop for so many memorable nights. The interiors were chic, modern, and very minimalist. Fast forward to 2018 and a renovation with Moss Manila, Pool Club is no more and The Island is where it’s at.
The Island is a tropical getaway that is far from its minimalist ancestor. Think of lush greens, vivid pops of colors, and Acapulco chairs a plenty. At The Island, the summer vibe will never change or go away. Despite all the renovations, they have kept the pool, so you can cool off anytime.
Alongside the colorful revive of the space, the menu has also changed. Think of grilled skewers with some iconic beachside cocktails. It has numerous stands for your cocktail fix to sushi and burgers. They also have a mini store with drinks, mixers, and snacks. Consider it a mini grocery store, so you and your friends could just have a chill night with your own mix of rum coke and some pika.
Entrance fees are so 2017. The Island welcomes all castaways who need a break from work or life in general, so just walk in and have escape. Another thing they have left in the past are cash payments, RFIDs are the preferred mode of payment at The Island.
With the rise of the nightlife scene in Manila, The Palace team saw a shift in the market. People still want to go out and drink, but not everyone wants to get black-out wasted. In order to adapt to this, The Island was born—an open-air chill place where you and your friends can just catch up and have a good time.
