Big Papa is big!

I may not be able to recount how I truly felt the first time I set foot in a gay bar because it happened several weeks ago, but I will give it a good try. A friend from Singapore, whom I shall call Darren, recently visited Manila for pleasure. He knew that I have never been to a gay bar in the past so before he even had a final plan to revisit Manila, he already promised me that he will take me there one day. That one day came true sooner than I expected. In the afternoon of August 28th, Darren and I went out to watch Final Destination 5 in TriNoma, which I thought would be our first and only meet up during his stay here. I was too skeptic, and probably judged too early, but Darren wasn’t I thought the Singaporean he would be. So after the movie, we talked about visiting one of Manila’s gay bars. Because of this and this, I suggested that we visit Big Papa which is located somewhere in Pasay, near the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

My general thought of a typical gay bar is very much similar to that of Palawan 2, a gay-oriented comedy and disco bar in Cubao I visited more than five times in the past, filled with cock-hungry gay men, filthy ambience and filthier toilets. Yet again, I judged too early. Once inside Big Papa, I instantly thought, “This is big, indeed!” The place, that is. The fact that the bar doesn’t have many guests that night probably maximized its already large area. The couches are surprisingly tidy, including all other tables which were mostly unoccupied during that time, as well as the restrooms. The manager, or that’s how I call them, anyway, told us that they also have VIP rooms where guests can utilize their karaoke and probably other perks unknown to many. Darren said it was too early for us to visit, which somehow explained the almost empty place. It wasn’t Darren’s first time there, and with his vast knowledge on Philippine gay bars, I couldn’t think of a better person to be with other than him.

If I recalled correctly, only one so called macho dancer showed off his cock while dancing. Most Big Papa male strippers are young, not too muscular but generally good looking. Since it was my first time, I got nothing to compare it with, and for a first timer, Big Papa is the perfect place to visit. A group of three, composed of one gay guy and his two female friends arrived few minutes before we left, and I think that they tabled someone because a “show up” happened. I think that’s how they call it, where all available strippers line up in front of you so you could finalize your selection. The manager who assisted us thought that Darren and I are lovers, so it helped that he didn’t bug us to table someone. Darren said it’s always better that you bring along someone with you so you will not be bombarded by these managers, but anyway, they’re not as irritating as I thought they would be.

Later that night, we also visited Solution, a gay bar also located somewhere in Pasay. It was a totally different experience and, man, it was hot. I will let you know about it next time. Ciao for now.

Good job! Congrats to your first gay bar experience. Darren and I went to the QC area the night before.

And funny that your picture captured BP having that "Erotico Duo" backdrop design. I was there on that event.
