Here’s another bar we won’t be able to visit after the pandemic: Makati’s XX XX. The restaurant’s management recently announced its closure through its social media accounts—after four years of serving the city’s nightlife patrons.

The time has come for us as well. After 4+ years, for all the obvious reasons, we are forced to close our doors. We would like to thank the people behind the scenes—everyone in the back-office, our bartenders, servers, technicians and security. To our brand partners, who supported our vision and helped us make it a reality. To all the promoters, DJs, dancers, musicians, performers, artists, photographers, videographers and pop-ups that took part in our events. It was truly an experience working with you. Last but not least, we’d like to thank those who walked through our doors week in and week out. It has been a great ride filled with lovely memories of the smiles and good times on the dance floor with all of you. During these hard times for nightlife and culture, we hope that sooner rather than later things will return to normal, or perhaps even better. Goodbye for now. #ThankYouForDancingWithUs

Aside from thanking its customers, XX XX’s management also expressed their gratitude towards their employees, promoters, performers and brand partners who supported and worked with them during their operations.

“It has been a great ride filled with lovely memories of the smiles and good times on the dance floor with all of you. During these hard times for nightlife and culture, we hope that sooner rather than later things will return to normal, or perhaps even better. Goodbye for now,” their statement reads.

As of writing, the management has not announced if there are plans after its closure.
