New bar? Count us in
Over a year ago, Mulberry Door opened in Bonifacio Global City and all titas and titas-at-heart had some where new to go to, take photos of and dine in. The homey yet sophisticated interiors, posh colors and elegant wood furnishings were welcoming to many who just wanted a place to sit in and enjoy good food with great conversation.
And since then, we’ve had the great time of exploring all the comforting yet different dishes that Mulberry Door has had to offer. Leche flan with fresh strawberries on top, taba ng talangka paella with chicharon for that extra serving of guilt and lamb burger so juicy you’d wonder why you haven’t been making it yourself.
It’s comfort food that we all know, but elevated and with an added layer of taste you wouldn’t expect. We’re all so used to leche flan as it is, all caramel and dense and delicious. All this time we didn’t know it needed a kick of strawberry to break the sweetness and add a little freshness. Who knew paella could be cooked with more than squid ink and the traditional saffron and—gasp—work so well with taba ng talangka.
But while the food is old—but still great and always delicious—news, Mulberry Door has us knocking at their entrance for something else entirely recently. That is, the introduction of a well-stocked bar that’s knee deep in signature mixes.

You’ll see familiar names in the bar menu: Gin & Tonic, Whiskey Sour, Old Fashioned, Kentucky Mule, Vodka Martini, Screwdriver, Moscow Mule and Strawberry Daiquiri. But with Mulberry Door’s signature twists on the drinks, you might find yourself knocking down a few glasses before you realize that the tipsy version of you is coming out.
So if you’re looking for a place to chill with your girls, get a little happy on good drinks (buy 1 take 1 on cocktails start at 4!) or get full from delicious food, now you know exactly where to go. Or, you know, it’s a good place to go on a date, too, if that’s more your thing.
