Blackbird at the Nielson Tower

Celebrated a dear friend’s birthday at the Blackbird. I would say it’s a bit expensive but it’s definitely worth a visit. The interior is very classy but a warm atmosphere can be felt.

It has a very distinguished history as it was an old airport before. In between 1937 to 1947, people used to fly through this airport. The Ayalas maintained the original structure of the building and it now houses Filipinas Heritage Library which serves as a resource center and the Blackbird for diners who want a different scene and feel.

The ladies are out tonight. Me and my good friends had fun that night.
