Grand Fourth of July celebrations at the Manila Hotel
Jun 29, 2013


The Fourth of July marks a significant milestone in American and Filipino relations as it commemorates both the 237th Declaration of American Independence and Filipino-American Friendship Day. This date also carries special meaning for the Manila Hotel, as it was inaugurated on July 4 some 101 years ago. This year’s celebrations at the Manila Hotel not only herald the special relationship between the two countries—it also celebrates The Grande Dame’s continued legacy in providing guests top-quality Filipino service and hospitality.     

If one’s palate yearns for authentic Cantonese cuisine, the Mabuhay Palace offers guests an ambience of oriental opulence perfect for all celebrations. The Grande Dame’s eminent Chinese restaurant offers a 50% discount on all American wines during lunch and dinner. Guests may also choose to compliment the Champagne’s Room’s luxurious French classics with the dining landmark’s own selection of American wines which will also be offered at 50% discount. Guests can embark on a gastronomic adventure with Café Ilang-Ilang’s 10 buffet stations, featuring popular dishes from around the world. Guests in groups of 10 members who feast during lunch or dinner at the Café Ilang Ilang will be served a complimentary bottle of
Woodridge by Robert Mondavi (red wine)—a true treat for those who want to savor the shop’s famed dishes.

Enjoy the soulful performances of some of the country’s top jazz artists at the Tap Room or let the soothing notes from the grand piano at the Lobby Lounge relax the senses while enjoying a glass (or two) of fine American wine. From noon until midnight, the Tap Room and the Lobby Lounge will offer guests a 50% discount on all their American wines. Guests who are eager to take in laidback scenes from the Manila Hotel Pool can also enjoy American wines that are likewise available at 50% discount from noon until 10:00PM.

To serenade guests on this very special occasion, famed Korean rock electric violinist Eun Joo Park will perform at Manila Hotel’s Grand Lobby from 7:00PM onwards. The premiere artist of her time, she is also a known model, actress and multidisciplinary performer. Ms. Park is a true superstar of her generation. Guests will surely be enchanted and delighted with her energetic and engaging performance at The Grande Dame.

So come the Fourth of July, celebrate in the historic halls of the Manila Hotel.  Join The Grande Dame’s festivities and usher in another year of impeccable service and luxury at its finest. Relive fond memories while creating new ones and attest to one of Ernest Hemingway’s most famous lines: “It’s a good story if it’s like Manila Hotel."
