What makes a restaurant qualify as your hangout spot? Most people would agree that it’s a combination of interiors, food, drinks, and any extras that the place has to offer. It’s a rare find when a place ticks off all of the above but South Pub might just be a winner.

Aptly named because of it’s location, South Pub is a community pub where anyone and everyone can unwind, eat, drink, and hang out. Their no-frills interiors have a dark industrial feel perfect for late nights but the natural light that comes in also makes it ideal for day time dining (and drinking).
While they couldn’t fit full sized game tables at the restaurant, South Pub has table top foosball, air hockey and billiards that you can borrow. It’s not ready yet, but they will also soon be setting up their al fresco dining area complete with a small archery section.
The menu at South Pub doesn’t subscribe to one particular cuisine, however, you can bet that anything you order would go great with a beer or drink.

Many of the dishes on South Pub’s menu were inspired by Chef Jinggoy’s travels. Being moved by the chipirones in Spain and the fried twinkies (yes, you read that right) in the States, he thought he’d bring them back home and put his own South Pub touch to them.
