Megaworld Lifestyle Malls and Pocofino open a new ‘Bar’ concept in Makati

A Little Taste of Italy in Salcedo Park

Megaworld Lifestyle Malls, the operator of leading premier lifestyle malls in the country, and Pocofino have joined forces in bringing a new concept they have dubbed Bar Pocofino at the swanky The Ellis, Makati in Salcedo Park residential area, introducing the Italian “bar” to the Philippines.

Pocofino is best known for its branches in Taguig, Mandaluyong, and San Juan Cities, boasting of premier and authentic Italian flavors that its patrons have grown to love through its years of operations. The brand finally makes its entry to the bustling business district of Makati City, looking to change the way Filipinos look at a bar.

In Italy, “bar” is used the same way we would use “cafe” or “coffee shop,” while here in the country, it would be associating the word with an establishment purely focused on drinks. Aside from coffee, these lively areas are places where they also meet and socialize over food and drinks.

Bar Pocofino combines the two realities of the “bar” into one warm retro modern Italian-inspired pet-friendly space that serves authentic Italian flavors through its coffee, food, desserts, and cocktails from sunrise to sunset introducing both Italian coffee classics and its unique caffe lattes such as the creamy Tre Latte, the small yet strong Forzzafino, and the brand’s best selling signature sweet latte the Pocofino Latte. All drinks use coffee beans roasted by Pocofino’s premium Italian coffee partners. Explore the blends from all over Italy with their Bean of the Day special, which features a new blend of coffee every day.

They also have food and treats, boasting a wide range of paninis and pastas. Keep an eye out for exclusive lunch specials that offer a panini, salad, and pasta all in one plate. As the sun sets, head over to Bar Pocofino with friends for a relaxing night cap. Experience the Italian equivalent of a happy hour with their Aperitivo Nights which features special promotions and treats along with your drink.

“We are proud to welcome Bar Pocofino into our fold at The Ellis, Makati. It perfectly fits our vision to bring fresh, dynamic experiences that will enrich the city’s already bustling scene, offering residents, employees, and visitors alike a unique place to gather, celebrate, and create unforgettable memories,” said Steffi Famatiga, General Manager of Megaworld Lifestyle Malls’ Makati properties.

Whether you’re looking for that caffeine boost after a run, a warm meal for your midday break, or a spirited drink to end your day, Bar Pocofino at Ellis Makati is ready to serve you with a warm “ciao.”
