We still remember the bittersweet moment when Kanto Bar closed its doors, a place that held countless memories for us. Birthdays, gigs, events, and musicians' nights—the walls of Kanto Bar echoed with the sounds of laughter, music, and camaraderie. But now, as we step into The Commons, we're filled with anticipation, eager to create new moments in this vibrant space that seamlessly blends food, music, and Davao night life.
Located in the heart of Davao City, The Commons has risen from the legacy of Kanto Bar, carrying its spirit and inviting us to embark on a fresh chapter of celebration and community. The transformation of Kanto Bar into The Commons was a labor of love, carefully upscaling the venue while preserving the nostalgia that made Kanto Bar one of the most popular bars in town—a haven for musicians, locals, and tourists alike.
As we entered The Commons, we were greeted by a familiar ambiance, a mix of nostalgia and excitement in the air. The space has been revitalized, breathing new life into our cherished memories. The Commons has successfully captured the essence of its predecessor while infusing its own unique charm.
Our recent visit coincided with The Commons' soft opening week, and we were treated to an unforgettable night of music. The talented 36 Degrees band took the stage, a group of young and upcoming musicians in Davao. Their fresh renditions of modern pop and R&B songs, as well as their lo-fi cool covers of 90s classics, stirred a sense of nostalgia and joy. It felt like the perfect bridge between the past and the present—a testament to The Commons' commitment to honoring its roots while embracing the evolution of Davao's nightlife.
But The Commons is not only a place for music enthusiasts; it also tantalizes the taste buds with its diverse culinary offerings. Whether you crave local favorites or international delights, The Commons presents a culinary journey that showcases the region's rich gastronomic heritage. Every bite is a symphony of flavors, inviting you to indulge and explore.
Tara na, The Commons ta bai!!
