NBA Cafe hits Philippines

The National Basketball Association (NBA) has opened the first NBA Cafe in the world in Manila, Philippines.

NBA Cafe Manila, at the SM Aura at Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, is a first-of-its-kind NBA destination which features a unique dining and entertainment experience aimed at capturing the energy and feel of the NBA.

Managed and operated locally by Haute Couture F&B Concepts, NBA Cafe Manila features larger than life NBA displays, unique memorabilia, and basketball-themed accents and fixtures. It is the first sports bar and restaurant in Manila catering specifically to basketball fans and will serve traditional American bar and grill food.

“Basketball is the most popular sport in the Philippines and it makes sense that the first NBA Cafe anywhere in the world would open for our passionate fans in Manila,” said Carlo Singson, NBA country manager, Philippines.

“NBA Cafe Manila is a unique one-stop destination for casual and avid sports fans alike and is another great way for them to experience the NBA first-hand.”

NBA Cafe Manila’s menu is inspired by classic American cuisine, offering a wide selection of dishes with an emphasis on nutrition and flavour.

“The concept of NBA Cafe Manila takes all aspects of the NBA into play,” said Nian Rigor, GM, NBA Cafe Manila/Haute Couture F&B Concepts.

“From the team visuals to the use of the colours red, white and blue, everything will make our fans feel right at home with the authentic NBA surroundings we’ve recreated. NBA Cafe Manila will be the metro’s default destination for all things sports, all things NBA, providing fans with the ultimate sports, entertainment and dining experience.”
