Angeles bar guide and nightlife

Fields Avenue is a naughty adult playground

Fields Avenue is a naughty adult playground

The infamous Angeles nightlife scene around Fields Avenue sprung up originally due to the American military base nearby at Clark Fields and the young men living there. There are literally hundreds of bars in Angeles and Clark these days of all different types. Other than the ubiquitous girlie bars in Angeles, the area also has lots of hotel bars, karaoke lounges and traditional pubs boasting live bands.

Fields Avenue is the principle Angeles nightlife strip with go-go bars galore, and everybody visiting the city should pop down here after dark just to experience the mayhem first hand. A good many of these Angeles bars are open 24/7, while others start in the evening and carry on until the wee small hours of the morning.

Prices of drinks in Angeles bars tend to be extremely low, so bar-hopping down Fields Avenue is not going to require a second mortgage. English is spoken by virtually all the hospitality staff of the neighbourhood so there is no language barrier between you and your firm friends.

Suggested hotels near Clark International Airport

Generally the bar girls in Angeles are all straight with little gay or ladyboy action like one might find in Thailand. Those wanting to head out with a lady with have to pay an ‘early exit fee’ or ‘bar fine’ which normally amounts to around eight drinks. Prices are cheaper here than in equivalent Ermita or Malate establishments in Manila. Otherwise there are plenty of Angeles casinos listed here for those that want to get lucky in a less lurid way.
