When in Boracay, you don’t need to wait for the nightlife to liven up. You can go at your own pace and have a gentle start to your evening with refreshing cocktails and light wines in the afternoon.
There are many different bars and restaurants that serve great drinks, which can make it difficult to choose which one to visit. Here’s our Boracay bar guide for great places to get your midday and afternoon drinks in Station 2.
If you want to avoid the crowded streets and sandy beach, Buenavista takes afternoon cocktails to a new level. This cool new rooftop bar offers some great classic and signature cocktails, but the main draw of the bar is the stunning sunset views you can enjoy. Start with their light snacks and signature cocktails during the day and hang around to watch the sunset. You can find Buenavista on the rooftop of Feliz Hotel Boracay.
2. Aria Cucina Italiana
One of the more popular Italian and pizza restaurants on the white-sand island, Aria has been standing on the same spot in Boracay for more than fifteen years. Not only can you get a great plate of Italian food, but Aria’s beverage menu features imported beers, liquors, and both Old World and New World wines, so there’s definitely something for everyone. We recommend trying their selection of Italian white wines. What’s great about Aria is that it’s a beachfront restaurant located in D’Mall!
3. The Hobbit Tavern
The Hobbit Tavern (formerly known as The Hobbit House) is a place for those who enjoy pubs or are looking for a unique experience. This international tavern is well-known for their cheerful wait staff, who provide the inspiration for the pub’s name. The Irish themed pub offers beers by the bucket, a wide selection of cocktails, and a full spread of appetisers to main dishes, which make for an excellent merienda to go with your preferred drink.
These are only three options around D’Mall if you’re looking to enjoy ice cold drinks in the afternoon. If you are staying in a Boracay hotel in Station 2, there are many other fantastic bars available to you. Given this, don’t hesitate to ask your hotel’s concierge for more recommendations!
