Poblacion was the place to be for Valentine's Day, with people of various relationship statuses choosing the hyped and happening Makati spot to celebrate love with drinks, friends, and beats. In particular, Z Hostel, along with The Apartment and The Ruins, hosted three simultaneous events catering to all types of music-loving couples. Reggae fans turned nostalgic at The Apartment with Vic Facultad and Weather The Roots headlining "Bowties x Pianos x Beats." Those who wanted a more laidback feel treated themselves with pumpin' house beats at The Ruins' "Bizarre Love Triangle," bannering Manolet Dario, Kevin Ruiz, and Erwin Edralin. The event even staged a marriage booth and kissing booth for couples and singles, with classic romantic flicks projected on the dance floor! The usual partyphiles found themselves socializing at a packed Z Hostel, via "House Collab" featuring Nicky Jurado, Peps Laviña, Alex Catalan, MUk, and Randy Salvador. Both sides of the chillest roofdeck in all of Poblacion provided a special haven to dance and drink the night away.
Whoever said Valentine's Day was just for couples again?
