The Perfect Alibi for a Night Out

You don't need to find an excuse to get a drink or two and bar chows to pair it with. You deserve it after surviving a grueling week at work or simply living in chaotic Manila. And if you do, we have the perfect alibi which is Alibi.

Hello, Alibi.
Alibi is one of the newest speakeasy bars in Tomas Morato. Located in the basement of Geonbae, one could easily miss this new gem in the city.
If you're coming from Geonbae, the first thing you'll see here is its beautiful display of fresh oysters. You can have your oysters fresh or torched with miso or pesto (PHP50 per piece). 
Tuna and Salmon Sashimi are also available at PHP275 per plate. (Note that these are also available at Geonbae with its unlimited K-BBQ.)
I'm not very keen on having cocktails with seafood as I prefer to pair it with sparkly or white wine. And if you're in the mood for cocktails too, Alibi also has other bar chows like Salpicao (PHP250), Mini Sausages (PHP150), Alibi Fries (PHP190), Pork Sisig (PHP250) and Oyster Sisig (PHP290).
There are also heavier meals like Baby Back Ribs (PHP250) and Country Style Fried Chicken (PHP220) if you're skipping dinner for Alibi.
Aside from the fresh oysters, I liked the two sisig dishes and baby back ribs. The ribs were tender and made me crave for rice!
Sangria was not available when we visited but R's Lychee Mojito was bang for the buck at PHP145! It was pretty big for the price you have to pay. 
Most of my friends also liked Yakuroto Vodka (PHP165) which was quite sweet too.
Just be careful as these sweet-tasting drinks could easily make you drunk fast!
I liked that the place doesn't play loud music hence making it so easy for us to hear each other. The dim lights paired with a handful of neon signage gave the place a youthful and hip vibe. 
The place needs to work on its service though as it took a long while for the drinks to be served and we were the only ones there then. I also noticed that the glasses given to us for water were not washed well. But kudos to the team as they have been very friendly and accommodating to all our requests.
I'll be back to try sangria and to have more of its fresh oysters and sisig!

Alibi is located at 115 Scout Delgado Street, Sacred Heart, Quezon City.
