In Pasig’s Kapitolyo district, it’s well documented that there are plenty of tasty reasons to visit. But in the first week of November, a new cafe-bar is rolling on the wave of its simple blends and inclusive experience.
Originating in Las Piñas before opening in Katipunan soon after, Stay Up Espresso Bar’s third branch in Kapitolyo stands as both a statement of their success and mission to offer a “fun, inclusive space for all” across the capital. And they’re doing it that feels entirely natural today: espousing pet-friendly policies and staging themed nights to go with your No Sleep Spanish latte, Psycho Flip breve drink, and blueberry cheesecake.
Separating itself from the traditional coffee shop, Stay Up Espresso Bar pitches the exciting cafe concept of themed events from tarot readings and ’80s nights to stand-up comedy and drag performances to keep everyone entertained. But it’s their thrice-a-week, heartstopping drag performances that are quintessentially going to keep customers coming back.
However if you don’t have time, do yourself a favor and take home a few of their bottled coffees. Our favorites? No Sleep and Up All Night.
