Best Manila Gogo Bar – Kojax
Special pole dancing or costume shows, midnight Fri & Sat
The hottest bargirls I’ve found in Manila were at Kojax bar on Badajos Street, in the P Burgos red light district of Makati. Open Fri-Sun, and Mon-Thu the downstairs bar ‘XOXO’ is open, same owner, same girls.
Kojax & XOXO used to both be open 7 days, now they split the week. More dancers work weekends, so Kojax is better. XOXO is still good though. 2nd best gogo bar in Manila. Both open 8.30pm – 5am. Best to go early.
Kojax girls waiting for a customer
To take a dancer home from either bar costs 2900 peso barfine paid upfront in the gogo, then you pay the girl in your hotel after sex, usually 3000 pesos, 2500 possible if you negotiate or are a repeat customer.
This is different to Angeles City where you pay upfront 2500-3500, or Cebu where you pay upfront 3500-4000, and then do not pay the girl after sex. Manila is two payments, Thailand style, and is more expensive.
Usually you’ll need to buy at least one lady drink to make the girl feel comfortable, these cost 300, 350 or 400 depending on the type. Sometimes the mamasans might insist you buy two. Plus your drink, 150-200.
So in total approx. 6500 pesos, which is 120 USD, or 4000 baht, slightly more than a Bangkok gogo bar (700 baht barfine, 2500-3000 to the girl, 170-200 per lady drink, 150 a beer).
Was hard to take pics, sorry for low quality
It’s 2-3x the cost of Angeles City gogo bars, and in Manila there are places to find cheaper prostitutes – on the street around P Burgos, Royal disco, ZZYZX disco, the EDSA gogo bars, etc.
In general I do prefer Angeles City. However some of the hottest Filipinas I have ever seen with were working at Kojax, so I begrudgingly paid the $120 at Kojax / XOXO, ten times.
Tell the staff which girl you want to sit and drink with
Four times I was able to get the girl’s contact info and avoid the barfine. They’re not allowed to be seen doing this so be discreet. I should’ve tried this more often, the barfine is a ripoff.
One time staff were watching so my girl went to the CR, wrote her number on a piece of paper, hid it in her bra, then slipped it to me mid lap-dance. Another girl spelt out her Facebook name for me to memorize.
Leaving with the girl after paying 2900 barfine
The third girl memorized my room number in the condotel opposite Kojax (Bel Air Soho Suites, some of the bargirls live there) and came knocking after work.
Some girls will be scared to get fired, but if you reassure them no one will find out, it’s doable because greedy Manila bars don’t usually give the girls any cut of the barfine.

Their daily salary is low too, as is the cut from each lady drink, many Filipina bargirls barely breakeven on the taxi fares to and from work if they aren’t barfined. They depend on customers to barfine them for sex.
So with a sneakout you end up only paying 3000 ($60) plus drinks. The fourth girl I did this with needed extra convincing, she did it when I said I’d give her half the savings from not paying the barfine, so 4500.
A slim Kojax girl
Even if you have to barfine the first time, most girls will be ok to meet you privately after that. One Kojax girl would come to my room before work or on her off days for 1500-2000.
Filipina bargirls will sometimes stay with you long time for the same price, so you can have sex 2+ times, whereas Thai bargirls charge more for that. They’re also happy to bareback even more than Thailand.
Happy to pose for pics
I find around 30% of Manila gogo girls are happy to hang out and bang again, especially if you stay in a nice Airbnb ($35 off link) e.g. Gramercy, and 80% are ok with not using a condom. 40% / 90% in Angeles City.
So when you factor in that you might be able to bang more than once, probably rawdog, and can set up cheaper follow up meets, the high Manila mongering prices start to look better.
Threesome, 2500 each, no condom with each
Filipinas working girls are usually good in bed, I was never disappointed with a Kojax girl even the times it was one shot with condom. All do DFK and BBBJ.
I was never robbed in my apartment or anything like that. The only scams come from the gogo bar staff – sometimes they’re slow to bring back change, add a drink to the bill, etc.

It’s easy to hook up with Filipinas for free on online dating sites like Filipino Cupid and Pinalove or apps like Tinder etc., I use those too, but I find the hottest girls in the Philippines are often working girls, or not single.
Apart from Kojax and XOXO, other P Burgos gogo bars worth checking out Plan B, and Tickles – there you can get a blowjob in the bar in a back room. Ringside bar for boxing shows.
