Introduction to Angeles City
located about 80 kilometers from Manila, Angeles City is the perfect quick getaway from the hectic pace of the capital city in the Philippines.
Most guys who travel to Southeast Asia eventually end up making the trip to Angeles at some point or another. And if you still haven’t yet, I recommend that you do. The place is frequently compared to other similar destinations in Asia.
Generally speaking, the city is safe, and tourist areas of Angeles city have its fair share of police looking out for problems with foreigners.
Most of the places will either be “girly bars” or “normal bars”. The regular bars will be places which will have freelancers who are not employed by the establishment.
The girly bars are designed like strip clubs, which are entertainment designed for the single male tourists. Read more below for further info.

It is very convenient here. The entire street is only a few hundred meters in length, but is a big thrill. Especially at night when all the venues open up and most of the girls are working.
This is the street where leads to the walking street above. It is like a secondary nightlife location in Angeles. There are also go go bars, massage shops and few nightclubs here. The entire street is longer than Walking Street, and the bars and shops are spread out. It is great for exploring and checking out which establishments you prefer.
Once you get further away from walking street the area is known as “Perimeter”. Here you will find some more girlie bars, and more entertainment, especially in the afternoons.
Just remember, the further you go from Walking Street, the earlier the places tend to shut down, typically around 9 PM. But don’t let that stop you, “Perimiter” is well worth visiting, especially since the prices are less expensive than Walking Street.
Other Side Streets & Alleys
Around Walking Street and Fields there are a few streets worth checking out.
In these areas you will have a more relaxed experience, and the crowd is typically more expats or experiences travelers. That is because most new visitors to Angeles City don’t bother exploring these smaller streets and alleys — or they simply never new there was entertainment in these smaller streets.
Here are a few streets worth exploring:
- Santos St.
- Real St.

Go Go Bars in Angeles City
One of the main features of this city is are the popular go go bars it has, especially on Walking Street. It’s also one the main selling points about the place. You get great entertainment for a decent price. In this context, Angeles City has one of the best go go bar scenes in all of Philippines and the rest of South East Asia.
And the great thing is that most of the Filipina girls that work in these bars are young and attractive, and usually up for a great time.
They’re job is to make tourists feel welcome, and to also keep you company, as long as you buy them “Lady Drinks”. These are slightly more expensive than standard drinks, and the girls get commission from them. It can be considered something like a tip or incentive to them.
You can simply walk into the go go bar and take a quick look and decide if you want to stay or not. If you are planning to stay then you will be required to order a drink. From there you can relax and watch the dance shows, or you could also ask the waitress to help you choose a girl to spend time with you.
Drinks: P120 – P140 for beers
Lady Drinks: P250 – P300
Bar Fine: P3000 at most places

Most of the girls in these clubs will also be freelancers who are looking for customers. And most guys actually find it to be more convenient and cheaper than going to the bars and paying for extras like lady drinks and bar fines. But this also has a bit more risk, since you really don’t know who she is and what her intentions are.
