In Makati, the central business district of Metro Manila, there is no shortage of restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries, and other establishments that young professionals, company executives, and even professors and students in the area can frequent.

In the latter part of 2010, the all-new Ayala Triangle was opened to the public. It is conveniently located amidst the intersections of Ayala Avenue, Paseo de Roxas, and Makati Avenue. The area is home to several Makati offices for rent  as the Ayala Triangle is surrounded by buildings and skyscrapers that are utilized by different businesses, organizations, and corporations. These include both local and international companies.

Whether one is in search of a new restaurant to try or a park where you can hang out and relax, Ayala Triangle is the place to be. Some of the food establishments that can be found here are Banapple, Bfast by Chef Laudico, Golden Spoon, Omakase, Wee Nam Kee, C.B.D. by Tender Bob's, Kanin Club, Pho 24, Amici and Cara Mia, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, and the MOMO Café. You can try these restaurants with your officemates after a long day at work or head here to enjoy Saturday dinner with your family.

During the holiday season or the months of November and December, public events are held in the area and everyone is more than welcome to attend and to participate. One of these events is the Symphony of Parols,  a lights and sounds show that is staged every half hour. Here, you can witness the beauty of Christmas lights shining in the middle of Ayala Triangle and feel the Christmas spirit of the city.
