Old School Music + Great Food & Booze = Guilty Pleasures at Rocket Room BGC

I spent my high school years in the 90s and I grew up watching MTV and radio countdowns of songs that made significant influence in my life. Okay! I confess! I am guilty of listening to Mariah Carey, Ricky Martin, George Michael, Janet Jackson, Kylie Minogue and I always denied that I had CDs of the Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys, and I always debated that Brandy sang better than Monica!

I'm a 90's boy and I'm proud of it, and it is with great enthusiasm when I learned that Rocket Room turned their Wednesday nights into a mid-week party of old school music mixed by Manila's best DJs - Guilty Pleasures! Here are some of the music I enjoyed listed to during my high school years.

Runaway by Janet Jackson (1995)

Fast Love by George Michael (1996)

Honey by Mariah Carey (1997)

Everybody by Backstreet Boys (1997)

Do you want some more? Guilty Pleasures starts at 7:00pm and ends at 12:00 midnight, that's five hours of 90's music and their play list has got that covered. Here are more music you secretly listened to with your portable CD player.

Say You'll Be There by Spice Girls (1996)

The Boy Is Mine by Brandy & Monica (1998)

Livin La Vida Loca by Ricky Martin (1999)

Can't Get You out of My Head
by Kylie Minogue (2001)

Do you remember the countless bottles of beer you quietly sneaked into your room which you kept as a secret until you turned 18? Those day are long gone and now you can have all the beer and booze you want. And that's exactly what we did at Rocket Room. Here are our top favorites.

Apples in the Penthouse (Washington red apple and cinnamon bark rum with lemon juice and cinnamon syrup, and topped with caramel crisp)

Sea Monkey (rum, guava daiquiri, sour mix, and bitters)

Rocket Room is part of the Raintree Restaurants Group, an assurance that your taste buds will surely be treated with amazing flavors of fresh and simple dishes created by Chef Kalel Chan. Do try the Salsa, Guacamole and Chips (warm tortilla chips served with salsa fresca & guacamole), the Garlic Bianca Pizza (pizza topped with roasted and toasted garlic, fresh baby spinach, Malagos pecorino), and the Piri Piri Chilean Mussels (mussels cooked in white wine and garlic, and served with salsa verde dip and fresh lemon wedges)
