Ayala revives Makati Street Meet al fresco dining

The next meet will happen on 4 April.

Philippines-based Ayala Land (ALI) has brought back street dining in Makati and Bonifacio Global City (BGC) through the revival of its Makati Street Meet, the company revealed in a press release.

The Makati Street Meet showed up along Rada and Leviste Streets in Legaspi and Salcedo Village, respectively, closing both streets to traffic on Valentine’s Day, 28 February, and 14 March.

A short drive west of Ayala Avenue, Circuit Makati hosted the Riverside Sessions – dining by the riverside, musical performances by a violinist and a saxophonist, and on-the-spot sessions with a caricaturist.

In BGC, under the My Street High Street programme, portions of 5th Avenue go car-free every Saturday and Sunday so BGCitizens can freely play and dine outdoors from beloved Bonifacio High Street restaurants.

Fresh vegetables and produce from displaced farmers of the Benguet Collective are also made available on weekends. This initiative aims to support social enterprises that were severely hit by the pandemic, and to offer affordable goods to the BGC community.

The next runs of Makati Street Meet will happen on 4 April, 18 April, 2 May, 16 May, 13 June, and 27 June. Riverside Sessions at Circuit Makati will happen on 14 March, 18 April, 16 May, and 27 June.

The Makati Street Meet was held every month for three years at its original venue along Paseo de Roxas until it closed down in 2020 due to the pandemic. But with the gradual easing of health and safety restrictions this year, it is being revived with a new format.
