If there is one place to enjoy a panoramic view of Cebu's nightscape, it should be a visit to Tops, Busay. It's a long steep winding road to get there on your private vehicle. You may charter a taxi cab for about P600 or hire motorbikes at the foot of the hill of Nivel near JY Square. It can be chilly at night especially during Ber months. Entrance fee is now pegged at P100 or 50% off if you have a discount card. Reservation is not required, but if you're a big group that needs much space, contact 4247800 or 3407837 for details.
You need not go too far to enjoy the nightscape, I just discovered two new stops:
Blu Bar & Grill
Blu Bar & Grill

Cocktails start 4:30 PM and dinner starts at 6:30 PM and closes by midnight. For reservations and enquiries, please call (6332) 2531111 extension 8355. Waitresses are impressively well trained.

|Caipiroska, a combination of vodka, lime and sugar |
at blu bar. This is a new discovery!
at Harold's Hotel
Located on the roof deck of Harold's Hotel, sits right the very heart of the city. The glass partition was built from the floor to eye level, thus giving a good panaramic view even while sitting on the couch. I was surprised at see the pretty nightscape even in the middle of city. Nightly music provides a balm to any guest at the end of a long day. Serves Ala cartè menus for cocktails, light snacks and dinner. Open daily from 5:00 PM to12:00 Midnight.
