On your travels, you may come across the once famous A-Santos Street, more commonly recognised by ex-patriots as "Blow Road" for the obvious reasons. Although most of these bars are now closed, there are still several old-style bars full of girls to keep you entertained.

When you reach the bar scene, it won’t be long before you are star-struck for a beautiful girl. Best to call her down for a drink and initiate small talks to a little longer chats to break the ice. Angeles City is a nightlife-scene orientated around purchasing girls' drinks for commission, so you certainly don’t want to be known as a ‘cheap charlie’.

Further on, you reach the stage were you want to see this girl out of the workplace. Traditionally labelled as a bar-fine, the payment for six is illegal in the Philippines so don't feel offended if the bars hesitate. However you will find that every bar has its own procedure. All you can do is be polite and courteous to find out what the score is in the particular bar. Don’t be wandering up to any managers shouting about bar fine. Discuss this with your girl.

For those who enjoy the smiles and screams that come with being a big spender, each bar features a ‘ring the bell’ where you can buy drinks for all of the dancers and additional staff. Each bar features their own policy but often shares the same big rewards.
