The music from the lobby of some (favorite) hotels in and around Makati lure me to many afternoon teas or early evening cocktails. It helps too that the seats are comfy especially on zonked out days.
Have a drink -- a martini or piña colada -- order a club sandwich to share, if you care. Close your eyes and listen to old classics. Whenever I'm meeting friends here in Makati Shangrila, I love coming an hour early just to enjoy this.
Zonked out or not, it's a very pleasant place to unclutter one's mind. The chairs are very comfortable and there's a good distance between tables, which I like.
What's best.... The music puts you back in harmony after some stressful episode. So YES, peace and solitude have a price ;-)
