I love Baguio: Fireplace

Rio and I talked about which places I might want to go to during my visit to Baguio.  I told her of this place that my friend and I went to in Kamias, where we watched a band play old songs.  The band was legit.  But, maybe because they play old songs, the place also attracts DOM-like people, such that my friend and I swore we would never tell anyone we went there.  Rio said she wouldn’t want to go to the places I go to because it’s, uhm, social suicide.  Haha!

So, when I went to Baguio, she said that she’s going to bring me to this place called Fireplace, where one of her favorite bands, the Smooth Band, plays regularly.

We went there a couple of times on a Thursday.  And, they played really well!  I prefer alternative and reggae music but I couldn’t help but enjoy the soothing voice of the band members, their impeccable instrument-playing skills, and the comic relief provided by one of their vocalists.

Tito Mar, Rio’s Tatay, was so sweet that he asked Rio to request that they play a reggae song for us.  At first, I was telling Rio, “That’s not reggae…” and then they just surprised me and made it really reggae-like!  It was the last song they played for the evening and I just enjoyed it, together with the other songs they sang for us, immensely.

The ambiance that the place provides helped, too. :)

And, the awesome company, definitely. :)

Address: Villa Cordillera, Outlook Drive, Baguio City, Philippines, 2600
How to get there:  I don’t think there’s any jeepney that passes by Villa Cordillera.  So, you can either bring a car or take a cab and just as the driver to bring you to Villa Cordillera in Outlook Drive.
