Our Place Bar in Cebu is an icon and
holds the rank of the oldest, longest continually
running expat bar in Cebu City. Our place has been open since 1978
when Wes Mills, and his wife Lyn, purchased the building.
Although Wes was the original owner of the bar (and
still owns the building), it has been leased to a number
of tenants over the past 30 plus years.
Upon entering the building, you will
ascend a flight of stairs up to a large, airy, naturally
lit open bar area. Once inside the bar, you can appreciate aesthetic
value only a bar of its age can offer.
Our Place has
gone through a number of transitions through the
decades, but has continued to maintain its charm.
Through the years, Our Place has
been filled with statues, flags, banners, posters, auto
tags, photos, and other memorabilia furnished by its
visitors. There is even a journal which has been signed
by many visiting guests to the seasoned bar.
Our Place has the friendliest, and the
most unique bar to sit at that you will find in this
country. You see, the patrons can sit on either side of the
bar facing each other. This way they can join
in what bars are all about, conversation and interaction
with other arrivals from points around the globe.
