Summer may be over for Metro Manila peeps, but it has just started for students in other parts of the country. A couple of years ago, private schools in several provinces adjusted their school year to commence in August. One compelling reason for the move is to avoid the rainy months of June and July, and numerous class cancellations. Thus, “summer break” now has varying definitions depending on where you live. Regardless of when your summer begins, this much-awaited period isn’t complete without get-togethers. Organize a summer bash in one of the most affordable party venues in Manila. DMCI Properties got you covered!

Check out these 4 events places in Manila that will suit any type of occasion.

Summer family reunions at the Observatory

Most families hold reunions during the yuletide season. This doesn’t stop you from having yours in summer. Christmas is filled with social events from office parties to high school reunions. Some couples also choose to tie the knot in the cold months of December. Booking a venue for rent should be done months ahead to avoid hassles. By having your special event in the warm months of April or May, you don’t have to battle for a reservation.
Hold a dinner party with your family in the Iris Observatory at Tivoli Garden Residences. Tivoli Garden is a resort-style condo community along the border of Mandaluyong and Makati. The Observatory is an ideal party venue that can accommodate 50 to 60 people. It has air-conditioning system, standard house lights, and rest rooms. Your guests can aso park for free. You can have an intimate dinner with Metro Manila’s skyline as your backdrop. There are binoculars and telescopes for some stargazing fun.

June is traditionally the month of weddings. However, more couples are exchanging vows in summer, which suits a beach or garden wedding. If you or a loved one is getting married soon, consider the elegant Casa Real. This party venue for rent in Manila can accommodate as many as 130 guests. The colonial architectural design of Casa Real was inspired by the Tuason ancestral home on Sociego Street in Manila. It exudes a nostalgic feel perfect for an event as memorable as a wedding. Casa Real is also a top choice for debut parties. This posh venue features an air-conditioning system, standard house lights, rest rooms, and pay parking slots.

No need to look for a beautiful view for engagement, wedding or debut pictorials. Casa Real’s architectural and interior designs are simply cinematic. Instead of renting a hotel room before and after the event, you can ask about short-term accommodation in any of the DMCI condo communities in Acacia Estates.

Is there any place more fitting to hold your summer bash than in the Summer Capital of the Philippines? Each year, millions of tourists flock to the mountain city where the temperature is at least 8 degrees lower than in the lowlands. Even in the typically hot months of April and May, the thermostat records 13 to 15 degrees in the evening. There is a long list of venues for rent in Manila, but having your get-together in Baguio City will give your event a fun twist.

Outlook Ridge Residences is a DMCI Homes leisure residential development in Baguio. It has three function halls that suit events of various sizes. The 177 sqm Banawe Hall is perfect for birthdays and weddings and accommodates 60 to 70 people. For a larger event, Bontoc Hall (187 sqm) is an affordable choice. It is a preferred venue for reunions and seminars. If you need a place for an intimate gathering, the Sagada Hall (65 sqm) can fit 20 people. This cozy room can be rented for an introductory rate of Php600/hour (exclusive of VAT).

Aside from the standard features in DMCI events places (air conditioning, lights, etc.), rent for Outlook Ridge’s event venues include the use of a basic sound system, projector, and tables and chairs. For your personal accommodation, you can inquire about short-term leasing of fully-furnished condo units.

Probably the most important reason why summer parties are good is the need for people to reconnect in person. Studies show that technology, specifically social media, produces too much chatter but too little real conversation. Organizing a get-together will allow you to talk, laugh, dine and even dance with people who matter to you. As much as Facebook and Snapchat are convenient tools to “stay within the radar,” these just cannot substitute connecting in real life. Summer and long weekends are great opportunities to see your cousins, nephews, and high school friends. Celebrate a wedding, a debut party or a school reunion in any DMCI events venue today!
