Ayala Group has transformed a former street parking into Makati City’s newest outdoor dining experience, the Rada Promenade – offering people to savor the inviting cool December breeze that calls for more time spent outdoors.
The new exciting spot to hang out with family and friends for the whole year round unveiled the first phase of more outdoor innovations by Makati Commercial Estate Association (MACEA) and Ayala Land, Inc. (ALI), supported by the Makati LGU.
Located along Rada Street in Legaspi Village, the safe dining alternative to accommodate more customers is at the Makati Central Business District. Once used for street parking, the space was converted to host permanent and more al fresco dining options open daily with more outdoor activities such as:
- pet-friendly features and festive decorations to provide a perfect dining experience
- bikers welcomed to dine at the unique Bike and Dine racks allocated within the area
- car-riding public is still welcome to pass by Rada St. and enjoy a wide array of unique food concepts, provided by partner Makati restaurants and merchants, Wildflour, Nikkei, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, Sarsa, Wicked ‘Wich, and many more
- Its strategic location provides an interesting linkage to Makati’s well-loved community parks, such as Washington Sycip and Legazpi Active Parks, thus further establishing Makati as a walkable city.
MACEA Board of Governors Member Manny Blas shares how Rada Street is not just a place for cars but also for people. “It now becomes a place [where] we can enjoy [and] we can spend time in, hopefully not just on weekends but more often. We have a much livelier neighborhood because of this.”
The 1st phase of Rada Promenade features three different sizes of outdoor innovations scattered along Rada Street.
To provide maximum comfort and convenience for diners, the outdoor dining area is fenced with the provision of an ample amount of seating areas.
Art and nature coexist with people as additional trees are placed at vacant tree wells and movable planters and string lights, adorn the street to give it a festive and Parisian ambiance in the middle of the city.
Customers can also expect harmonious tunes to enliven their visit, as performed by Makati Live’s talented buskers.
These initiatives are just Phase 1 of the Rada Promenade project. The community is sure to be delighted as MACEA targets its completion by 2022, furnishing the area with more permanent alfresco spaces that are perfect for convergence with family and friends in the CBD, safely and daily.
“I would really like to thank the Ayala Group for being such a great partner to the tourism of our city. They are coming out with great ideas like the Street Meet [and] the Parklets [at] Esteban, which will really contribute to our tourism potential,” said International Relations Department and Makati Tourism Head Maria Concepcion Yabut.
Makati continues to offer more safe, alfresco dining options to the community, providing more facilities and activities that elevate life in the city.
