Spot­ted: your new fa­vorite bar in Pobla­cion, Makati.

You no longer need to play your Fri­day nights by ear—this bar de­serves con­crete plans. Oto, which means “sound” in Ja­panese, stands out in the lo­cal scene by putting mu­sic front and cen­ter. Upon en­ter­ing the bar, the first thing you’ll see is a pair of huge vin­tage speak­ers, which were cus­tom­ized for Oto us­ing parts from ‘70s speak­ers and cinema horns. The ceil­ing is cov­ered in slats to help dis­trib­ute sound more evenly, mak­ing for a pre­mium lis­ten­ing ex­pe­ri­ence of vinyl records that range from Adele to Bach to Cold­play. Open from brunch to after hours, Oto pairs good aes­thetic and acous­tics with in­spired dishes like the Pork Char Siu Pasta (P380), Home-made Corned Beef Waf­fle Sand­wich (P300), and Prawn Slid­ers (P380), which go well with your cof­fee or cock­tail of choice (Cu­ra­tor’s David Ong is in charge of the drinks se­lec­tion). Com­ing soon are the yak­i­tori menu, new cock­tails and cof­fee con­coc­tions, and low-key lis­ten­ing par­ties.

Oto is lo­cated at G/F 5880 En­riquez St., Pobla­cion, Makati.
