I'm not much of a party person, but for the sake of getting to know more about a place that I am visiting, I prefer to go the distance - from walking down the busy streets of their downtown, getting to know about their past by visiting museums, island hopping whenever available, trying out their local dishes & delicacies and checking out what life is like during the night.

Zigudo Resto Bar at Prime Square

During one of my visits to Davao City, my beau suggested that we go to Zigudo Resto Bar at the Prime Square at Torres Street in Bajada area - this is now Davao City's most happening place to date. Inside a huge compound is a gamut of night spots from one door to the next. You could literally bar hop without leaving the compound.

Zigudo Resto Bar is a young and vibrant place. Established in March 2010, it has managed to be Davao City's most vibrant night scene providing numerous events and comedic performances. 

During our visit, a monthly local modelling competition was being held. Aspiring male and female models strut the stage besting out each others' moves. Some where strikingly inviting to the sight while others were down right hilarious, particularly during the question and answer portion. No offense meant to contestants, but bear in mind that winning a beauty or talent search does not involve looks and talent alone - remember to sharpen your minds as the Question and Answer portion is always part of the equation.  Just a tip, brush up on your speaking skills and general knowledge to avoid embarassment in front of a huge crowd. It's a no-brainer come to think of it!

I'm sure the younger crowd will enjoy Zigudo Resto Bar with its nightly offerings not to mention that they have quite an affordable line in the menu and reasonable alcoholic beverages. As for me, I would prefer to chill-out in one of Davao City's hundreds of cafes.
