Macho Dancer Bars

various locations

Audience Rating: 2.0 stars from 9 votes - Click to vote

Manila’s macho dancer bars offer a different sort of experience to the go-go dance bars found in other Asian countries.   The guys in the macho dancer bars are more likely to be dancing slowly to ballad songs in a manner that many will see as being more seductive or sensual.

Macho bars are popular with both gay men and groups of women.  Many bars feature private areas or rooms for use by guests who wish to pay for a private, more intimate dance.

Popular macho dancer bars include Adonis (118 Timog Ave, Quezon City), Club One Heart (59-A Timog Ave, Quezon City), Big Papa (2315 Aurora Boulevard Pasay) and White Bird Disco and KTV, 715 Roxas Boulevard, Paranaque.  Learn more about Manila’s Macho Dancer Bars by reading this blog.
