Experience the first pop-up dinner in the heart of Manila this Valentine’s Day with Love at Azcarraga. For one night, the arcades of San Sebastian College and Laperal Apartments will be transformed into romantic gardens where you can enjoy a unique dining experience with authentic flamenco music and even better company right inside the University Belt.

Everyone is welcome — from the happily taken, bitter ‘til the end, friends and “friends”. The communal tables are perfect for singles looking to mingle with star athletes and cheerleaders from NCAA and UAAP teams. Our special guests will be around to hang out, sign autographs and take photos with everyone at the customized photo walls. Love might be hard to find, but we’ll help you fake it (‘til you make it) on social media.

Love at Azcarraga is a charity event and half the profits will go to the ten-year restoration of San Sebastian Basilica, the country’s only all-metal building, Tickets for the college arcade are pre-sold at P 300 each, inclusive of food and entertainment.

The dinner is a Q event, spearheaded by San Sebastian Basilica Conservation and Development Foundation, Inc. and Laperal Apartments. The two are part of a collective of Quiapo’s historical sites which hopes to put the neighborhood back on the map by making use of public spaces. The event is also in partnership with San Sebastian College, whose students will manage the evening’s food service for their venue. Converse is Love in Azcarraga’s official corporate sponsor.
