Metrowalk, situated at the crossroads of Ortigas and Meralco Avenues in Pasig City is a 5,000 square meter restaurant and entertainment complex, which boasts close to 56 establishments, including branded restaurants and watering holes. This area is ideal for romantic dates, family outings, shopping sprees, parties, or a day/night out alone. Its name, Metrowalk, speaks for itself, which literally means a walk or a stroll in the metro area. Metrowalk may not feel too upmarket compared to Ayala Center in Makati City or The Fort in Bonifacio Global City, but if you’re tired of buzzing crowds, then Metrowalk is just perfect for you.
In the morning, people who are jogging and exercising are scattered around Metrowalk; some are walking, rushing to work.
If you just want to chill out and don’t feel like walking, then people watching will do. Staring at the passersby, you will notice that the people who come here are from different walks of life: they are professionals, students, housewives, and vendors, among others. Unlike in other parts of the metro area, where only Manila’s high society is welcomed, Metrowalk has successfully bridged the gap among socio-economic classes—you don’t even have to dress up because everybody does.
