Discover With Seats: Hooch

 Aug 31, 2016


Slang for  “moonshine or alcoholic liquor,” Hooch has made a name for itself and has become one of the most well-loved bars in Makati. Its name is a tribute to the restrictive 1920s Prohibition, when drinks were forbidden and consumed only at speakeasies. The restaurant was set up by Chef Tom Hines, who is known for serving a mix of the classics and his own food and drink innovations.

Make your reservations with Seats!


Hooch mashes elements of the 1920s restriction into its vibe as it is dimly-lit and doesn’t scream for attention on it’s corner of Salcedo.  This handsome venue has a beautiful bar and houses high ceilings. Its character comes out when you notice a touch of humor represented by black and white silent movies like The Three Stooges playing on the TV.

Experience Hooch for yourself with Seats!
