Cebu has a well-deserved reputation as a party town. Upmarket clubs and bars are concentrated in central Cebu and in Mandaue, 5km east of the centre. Otherwise Mango Sq (on Gen Maxilom Ave) has unpretentious places, many a tad seedy. Note that a gentrification drive has lead to many Mango Sq joints closing and its future remains uncertain.

Salsa & Latin

Latin lovers should consult the local Facebook group www.facebook.com/cebusalsaclub for event information. There's an active community of salseros in Cebu; key venues include Maya.
