It has been really hot this week and there was that one simple and delightful way to cool down. I headed out to the first ever JIM BEAM HIGHBALL held at the Globe Ampitheater and i was a blast with a refreshing drinking experience. A first of a kind festive night of lights and sounds, live entertainment music by local indie bands, food pairing by select restaurants, and fun games and activities.
The Globe Amphitheatre on High Street was the perfect spot for the first ever Jim Beam Highball in the Philippines filled with games, music and an eye-catching immersive 360 bar that took center of attraction which lasted for 5 consecutive nights from April 24 to 28, and as soon as it hit 6 o’clock in the evening, the fun started.
“The Jim Beam Highball Pop-Up Bar takes fun to another level as we give Manila more things to explore – from our specially crafted highball flavors to live music from local indie bands, games, and delicious food that everyone can enjoy!” says Sally Lim, the Senior Marketing Manager of Beam Suntory for Southeast Asia.
Using our unique and patented draft machines, six different flavors of Jim Beam Highball are introduced for only P120 per glass! Groups can enjoy a special offer of Buy 3 and Get 1 Free which will be running throughout all five days of the event.
Paired with the refreshing highballs are dishes from the classic restaurants High Street, BGC is most known for: 205, Village Tavern, Nanbantei of Tokyo, and The Coconut Club, Allegria, and Torch.
Of course, no chill session is complete without live music. Local indie bands Autotelic and Oh, Flamingo are performing live onstage:

Amidst the drinks, music, and food are fun booth games for chances to win free Jim Beam Highballs. Attendees are also able to learn how to make the iconic Jim Beam Highball themselves.
The Jim Beam Highball Pop-Up Bar was located at the Globe Amphitheater in front of Coconut Club from Wednesday, April 24, to Sunday, April 28 started from 6PM until 12 midnight, with extended hours to 2AM last Friday and Saturday.
