6 Art Fair PH-Inspired Drinks


Whoever said that art is limited to the canvas?

Keeping their eyes on their goal to bring the visual arts closer to the public, the Art Fair Philippines organisers introduced extensions to their annual art show–one of which caters to those who have a taste for the bubblies.

“10 Days of Art” will be launched a full week ahead of Art Fair Philippines 2017, a series of events held in different galleries, museums, and worth mentioning, bars and restaurants around Makati, the City That Makes It All Happen.

That being said, in celebration of all things arts & culture in Makati, select bars and restaurants have come up with their own signature cocktails inspired by the Art Fair Philippines.

20:20, Don Papa, Belle & Dragon, Z Hostel, and Pablo are just some of the many participating establishments who have come up with their own artistic concoctions.

Here in no particular order are ten drinks you should try to commemorate art in the city.


Much like Neal Oshima’s passion for pushing photography to its limits, the Don Oshima pushes your taste buds with its sweet and sour notes using proudly Pinoy rum, Don Papa.
