If you’re tired of noisy, jam-packed bars, Yes Please in Uptown Bonifacio Global Centre may be the right place for you. An anti-bar with a 140-guest limit, the place is relaxed and exudes a ’90s vibe with pop culture references in music and menu. Much thought was poured into concept and details—for example, the artworks on the walls are depictions of anything that rhymes with “yes.” They also have a telephone that plays ’90s movie quotes when you pick it up. The name of the bar itself is an homage to the quirky Magic 8 Ball toy.

The cocktails also feel like a major throwback to the decade. Each concoction is named after ’90s icons like Le Gaston and Legends of the Hidden Temple. These go well with Cheese Garlic Pizza, Caramelized Spam Musubi, and other edible delights.
