Our list of best nightclubs in Manila is dedicated to EDM (Electronic Dance Music) aficionados who take advantage of the excellent selection of clubs to lose themselves on the dancefloor as soon as they hear the beat of their favourite dance music of choice; whether it is acid house, trance, dub, or some other subgenre. One thing is for sure, Manila has the best nightlife of all the major tourist destinations in the Philippines – a country with a solid reputation for having riotous fun at night.

    We’ve tested and selected Manila’s best dance clubs – it was an exhausting task, believe us – to come up with this list of great nightclubs in the capital of the Philippines. So now, all you have to do is to dress in your favourite dancewear and follow the beat. 

    Black Market has famous DJs playing various kinds of music each night if you're looking for a different vibe every now and then. Fans of reggae, funk, downtempo, and Afro music should look out for their Bad Decisions night on Wednesdays.
