Cento Bar: ood food, thirst-quenching drinks, terrific entertainment, cozy ambiance and lively party atmosphere

An casual party was given to us bloggers and media friends by the CENTO group at their VIP lounge. The intimate gathering was filled with great food: their Italian Sisig is crisp, not oily and and best eaten with rice (yes, we did eat it with rice..try it!); the Calamares are also to crave for and bigger compared to other establishments (I’ve yet to try their famous pasta perhaps on an Acoustic Night) and drinks galore (the Wuwu plus shooters especially the chocolate flavored one is yummy!)*Oh yeah, I’m really raving for this bar because I got drunk in record time..yup, an indication that I enjoyed in less than X minutes upon entering the establishment..AND I literally rolled when I tipped on the road outside hahaha!

CENTO, is increasingly becoming a sought after nightspot in Quezon City is relaunching its new line-up of nightly activities for 2010.

Monday and Tuesdays would now be known as Acoustic nights, where featured acoustic performers will play popular favorites and let members of the audience jam with them karaoke-style on selected numbers.

The still popular Jazz nights, where Cento has earned its reputation as an intimate jazz bar and after office hours destination are now on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Weekend warriors looking to dance the nights and mornings away would be more than pleased to know that DJ music that includes hip-hop and rhythm and blues are now on every Fridays and Saturdays.

In addition to its regular line-up, Cento has also been a selected venue to many events such as birthdays and several Christmas parties this season. Tonight it also hosts FROSTBITE!, a collaboration with DJ Crash, Blackslip and YellowLine productions.

FROSTBITE! is a red carpet party event similar to those popular high school and college open parties. A dress to impress affair, those who come in their best outfits can win lucky VIP passes to the VIP lounge at the second floor where they can just sit on the couches and just chill out with friends in between all the dancing and drinking downstairs.

Speaking of drinks, Cento also has an ongoing promo where you can drink all the cocktails you want including the bestselling Wuwu and Cosmo Cento for only P300 from 6 to 9PM as well as all the shooters you can handle all night for only P200. Free flowing shooters in different flavors will also be available during FROSTBITE!

And the food is not something to scoff at either. Cento has a wide selection of delicious pica-pica that includes house specialties like Pollo Speido (chicken in a skewer), Quattro Formaggi Pasta (their own four cheese pasta), Sardinas Bruschetta and Cento’s own take on classic favorites like Beef Salpicao, Pork Sisig, Nachos, Cheese Sticks, Calamari and Crispy Pata, among many others.

Good food, thirst-quenching drinks, terrific entertainment, cozy ambiance and lively party atmosphere all conspire in a first-rate venue like no other. Cento is located at 41 El Jardin del Presidente Condo, Sgt. Esguerra St. corner Sct Bayoran St., South triangle, Quezon City near ABS-CBN and GMA broadcast network studios.
