70s Bistro: Where You Can Be Who You Are

For many years, local pubs and music joints have come and gone. A few have survived the changing times and standing head above shoulders amongst them all is the place where you can be who you are: 70s Bistro.

As the rest of the neighborhood is about to retire from the day’s grind, artists, musicians, and some of the good people of the metropolis flock to a shabby yet cozy hole along Anonas Street, Project 2, Quezon City, Philippines to enjoy music and to put an exclamation mark to another page in their lives. Founded by a group of friends who love folk and rock music, this former rice storage facility now hosts some of the finest musicians in Metro Manila

After 16 years since it began its operation, this pub now holds an iconic status as one of the best places to go to, for one who seeks live folk and rock music, good food, and even better company. A joint where everyone is required to shed all pretensions and leave them by the door side, before entering this small, albeit ambient bistro.

On Fridays, a band as old as I am, play the blues. The Jerks is a four-piece band whose founding members are already in their late forties, if not early fifties. And just like good wine, they too, sound better than ever. On one occasion, I got the chance to bring my Holga 120N with a Panasonic flash, loaded with Kodak BC400. Below are some of the photos I took.

Life goes on for everyone. And, when we feel callous because of the constant need to wear a public face, we all know where to head to: 70s Bistro, the place where you can be who you are.
