A new escape in the city has been discovered, and the nightlife nation of Manila has begun its settlement. Welcome to The Island, where your tropical dreams will meet your nightlife agenda! After many years of insanely wild parties and rave-like events at The Palace, the party peeps are looking for something a little more ~chill~. That’s why it served as the perfect backdrop for Olivia Manzano Reyes’ adorbs little birthday shindig and Vice Ganda’s shocking surprise birthday celebration. Now, enter the urban jungle.

With a new hotspot in town, everyone in the city is already OTW, drawn to The Island like moths to a flame. With the latest edition of Flashes & Faces, we’re finding out special VIPs had gotten there first.
