During the 2021 lockdown, friends Jamille Chua, Klaire Chua, and Aira So thought to elevate their nightly virtual gatherings by creating guided cocktail kits. This proved to be a hit with friends and they decided to grow their thriving hobby into a business. They recently launched Nightcap Manila, an upscale bar-catering service.

Imagine not worrying about having an actual bar and bar-catering service in the venue of your choice. Yes, they have two actual bars to choose from and they will bring an entire bar to where your party is!

Nightcap Manila brings an elevated craft cocktail experience to any occasion, whether it’s a grand event or a simple gathering. Their drinks include classic cocktails, bespoke cocktails, and their signature cocktails. They are very adaptable because they understand that there are all types of celebrations.

Want an instant party at your doorstep? You can count on Nightcap to execute and they are approachable and ready to serve! Aside from having bar options, you also can choose if you want your guests to drink from gold, silver, or rose-gold colored glasses.

Nightcap Manila’s launch was in One Serendra West Tower in BGC where guests enjoyed a spread of bar chow paired with craft cocktails.  Over 150 guests entered the emerald-themed venue hall, where the co-founders unveiled the two designs of Nightcap Manila’s bars.  The first bar is minimalist and elegant and the second bar is a more edgy and industrial type. Nightcap Manila offered their signature drinks such as Salted Plum Margarita (tequila, raspberry, pomelo), Muscat Sour (gin, white grape, egg white), and Rose Quartz (gin, rose, dalandan, tonic). Sam YG hosted the event.
