Verona Rooftop Lounge: A sunset view in Mandaluyong worth the visit

Thursday, May 12, 2016

One good thing about the splintering sun is that the possibility of rainfall is sparse. Now is the best time to catch the view of a sunrise or sunset. If you don’t want to travel all the way to Manila for the iconic Manila sunset, perhaps this view in Mandaluyong will do.

On a Saturday afternoon, we enjoyed a windy and unobstructed view of The Fort from Privato Hotel’s Verona Rooftop Lounge. We arrived around 4:30 PM to get good seats and to see the view during the day, during sunset, and at night.

The area is not the biggest or the most glamorous but that’s perfectly fine.  

I ordered a few things while waiting for the “show” but the drinks and pica-pica were average. This is an area that the bar can improve on. But hey, our primary reason for the visit was the view and we got exactly what we asked for. 

The fantastic view at different times of the day, click on the photo to enlarge to have a better appreciation of the view. It is a show worth waiting for!
For women, I highly recommend avoiding wearing a short skirt or dress. The struggle was real when it got windy.

If you feel like relaxing with a view but without the pretentious vibe of Makati or the Fort then give Verona Rooftop Lounge a shot. I was exceptionally lucky with the weather and thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon there. Thank you Mother Nature for an astonishing show!

PS I saw a photo of a dinner set-up at the lounge on Zomato and it is pretty gorgeous.
