Cafe Havana Makati for Finding Filipina Freelancers
By Greenbelt 3 mall
Cafe Havana is another Manila hooker bar / restaurant, similar concept to LA Cafe but more expensive.
Freelancers hang out there playing on their phones waiting for a foreigner to give them cash. Maybe 10% normal / grey area girls mixed in.
I’m not a fan of the atmosphere inside Cafe Havana itself, it has a ‘old golddigger looking for a rich sponsor’ kind of vibe, not as laid back as LA Cafe.
Similar to bars in 5 star hotels where middle aged hookers hang out nursing one drink hoping to snag a rich tourist or businessman, e.g. Spasso’s in Bangkok.

Luckily you don’t have to go in as most of the tables are outside and there are tons of freelancers in that open air area of Greenbelt 3 mall.
By the Starbucks and Seattle’s Best Coffee on either side, or sitting on the benches, or just milling around.
Freelancer on the benches
So you can just walk by and see who’s in Cafe Havana and in the general area. You can tell which girls are freelancers as they’ll lock eye contact with you.
There are tons of baklas (transgenders) freelancing here too as they can’t work in many gogo bars.
Greenbelt Hooker Prices
There’s no fixed price of sex, depends on your negotiation skills but expect to pay slightly more than LA Cafe.
Around 2000 – 3000 pesos short time should be doable, basically the same as a P. Burgos bargirl without a barfine. Bit less for the ones outside Cafe Havana.
Maybe 4k ish for long time. If you’re not in a hurry get their number and text them lower offers, they’ll accept later they don’t find a customer.
Cafe Havana Reviews
Because of the clean Greenbelt surroundings most people don’t realise it’s full of working girls. Normal tourists and Filipinos go there for the Cuban food and then rant on Tripadvisor:
Pokpok need loving too
We all get old
Filipino American guy
That last guy makes some good points, the Cafe Havana girls can be a bit bitchy. And not hot.
What I do is just get a coffee to takeaway at Seattle’s Best Coffee, see if there’s any hot freelancers on the benches outside, if so get their number or sit and chat.
If not walk over to Starbucks to do the same, taking a look at Havana on the way without going in. Repeat for a few laps trying to check out as many girls as possible.
About 9-10pm the most girls are there. The mall closes but the open air area stays open late.
Then if you strike out head to P. Burgos bikini bars just down the road. Hotter, younger bargirls there.
Or you can go around 7-8pm and eat at Greenbelt to start the night off, maybe bump into some cute normal girls before the mall closes. Then get a good seat somewhere overlooking the action.
Starbucks outside tables
Some groups of girls prefer Starbucks to the left, because Cafe Havana makes everyone buy something but Starbucks doesn’t care so they sit there.
If you go up to the second level above Cafe Havana you can get a view of all the action. That’s where I took the overhead pics from.
There’s a nice pizza place on that level too. Motorino.
Overall don’t expect too much, most nights you won’t see any hot girls at Cafe Havana or nearby.
But it’s worth a stroll through especially if you’re living in Makati at e.g. Gramercy or The Beacon.
Cafe Havana seats
If you do find some talent it’s nice to not have to deal with barfines, mamasans and lady drinks.
But overall I still prefer P. Burgos despite those. Has hotter girls and more options. Or just use online dating.

Some Cafe Havana girls will head to LA Cafe later on.
They should rename this place “Cafe Grandpa.” The last time I saw this many old white dudes in one place I was visiting my grandfather in an old folks home.
Lol yeah definitely an older demographic. These girls must be hoping to get added to some wills.
Don’t laugh buster. You might think differently one day.I’m older and have a better cock than may young 3 minute wonders.
Dont kid ya self mate that little peanut aint dojng shit
lol pickup point for old white men
When i lived in the Greenbelt area me and my mate used to go there for a laugh and watch the scenes unfold. To be fair the food is ok, i think the fact that the club at the New World Hotel is constantly closing down and reopening (been through 3 changes since i have been here) meant that Havana has seen the demographic of the girls pushed further up, as that club used to be legendary for freelancers. The younger ones would rather hang out at Royal, House Manila or one of the BGC clubs now so don’t generally hang around that area. Don’t get up that way much now, but the percentage of hot young girls is low, although you do get the odd one.
Haha yeah and ZZYZX club
It should be called Cafe Grandma,, girls working there is min 30’s to 50’s especially those sitting near the front door and in the umbrella outdoor..those girls are seating on the same seat as everynight for more than a decade… too old bitches thats what you can find in cafe havana
Have tried Cafe H for early, happy hour , late and later with much disappointment. Many sit in groups and the approach is difficult. Just like trying to cut out your girl of choice in a regular night club. With the girls all sitting around the tables, its hard to distinguish the cute and slender from the many overweight and ugly hidden there in the dark. Stunner wanted P6000 for short time. Another hottie was P3500 ST and not negotiable at all. Avoid these -Just off the street- freelancers, charging “mall” prices. I’m going back to the FL’s on Burgos or at LA Cafe.
Agreed P Burgos is way better, some of the massage girls standing around will do full service for 2500 – 3000.
Yes give me one…give me here contact number..
Or you me call at 09568676979 tnx ..i need hot girl…
looks like fun. need to go to the philipines.
Everyone needs to get their fun somewhere. We stayed here for over a week and I noticed that the girls near the Cafe are picky who they talk to. The girls not buying drinks sitting around the edges seem to be on the rough side. There are some stunning girls there at the weekends wanting 6K for short time, but to me it’s just not worth it. We met some really beautiful girls who wanted 3.5K and stayed all night. It costs nothing to talk to them, check them up closer and either go back to your table or work something out. By mid-week we tried online dating and found some stunners who just wanted to be wined and dined, have their taxi paid and be made love to all night long. Also we met no-one over 26 years old.
Who is “we”?
Are you having 3somes with your mate? lol
Two weeks prior to arriving in the Philippines start fishing online date sites. Be frank and up front about what you want. I am single and have lived in the Philippines for several years. I go to the mall or just walk around the neighborhoods, easy picking for foreigners. If you’re just vacationing in the Philippines and don’t have time for wine and dine, I guess the bars will be your venue. But there are plenty of beautiful and sexy girls online looking for fun.
