I’M Hotel Unveils Two Exciting F&B Destinations: Osteria M and Barangay Bar

I’M Hotel, renowned for its luxurious accommodations and exceptional dining experiences, is thrilled to announce the launch of two new food and beverage outlets set to open in the first week of May: Osteria M and Barangay Bar.


Osteria M: Melc Patisserie’s Spinoff Promises a Fusion of Filipino and Italian Culinary Excellence

Located at I’M Hotel’s lobby, Osteria M is more than just a restaurant—it’s a celebration of innovation meeting tradition. Led by the esteemed Chef Melissa Lim, a finalist of Singapore MasterChef Season 2, Osteria M promises a playful and contemporary take on Filipino-Italian cuisine. Chef Mel’s curated recipes and visionary approach to fusion cuisine guarantee a dining experience unlike any other.


At Osteria M, sustainability stands as a cornerstone. The focus is on premium, locally sourced ingredients, backing the community of farmers and producers while reducing environmental impact. From handmade pasta to artisanal breads and irresistible meats, each dish at Osteria M reflects meticulous attention to detail and an unwavering commitment to quality.


Barangay Bar: Makati’s Newest LGBTQ+ Hotspot

With I’M Hotel known for its pioneering initiatives, comes yet another exciting addition. Barangay Bar, situated within the renowned acrylic-bottom swimming pool of I’M Hotel, is poised to emerge as the premier LGBTQ+ destination in Makati, offering both indoor and outdoor spaces. Drawing inspiration from the vibrant and diverse urban neighborhoods referred to as ‘barangays,’ Barangay Bar aims to establish a space where inclusivity and unity flourish.

This chic yet inviting bar presents an elevated yet affordably priced menu, featuring expertly crafted cocktails, captivating street art, and top-notch entertainment. Whether guests opt to unwind by the celebrated acrylic-bottom infinity pool or revel in the weatherproof, Instagram-worthy dome, Barangay Bar provides a versatile environment for quality leisure and lasting connections.
