Valkyrie Nightclub Opens The Palace, Set To Be Biggest Nightlife Destination in Asia

In Norse Mythology, Valkyrie referred to one of the virginal women who searched the battlefields for the souls of dead men fit to become einherjar (ine-hair-ee-are), which were then taken up to Valhalla (the equivalent of heaven) and trained to fight in the battle of Ragnarok (equivalent of apocalypse). The Valkyrie also served wine and food to the einherjar in the great hall.

And so the word was out: the establishment of the colossal Palace at Bonifacio Global City in Taguig and the unveiling of its first phase, Valkyrie Nightclub. Valkyrie Nightclub is just the initial stage of the massive complex that is rising in uptown Taguig.1

The brainchild of the people behind Members Only, Prive, Aracama, 71 Gramercy, 12 Monkeys, Draft Republiq, Opus, Aracama, and from the not-so-distant past, Embassy, Encore, Cuisine and Fly2 , for Manila’s party crowd, there is only one place to be seen: Valkyrie at The Palace2 . Celebrity partners include Tim Yap, Raymond Gutierrez, JM Rodriguez and Fabio Ide1 with Kim Yao, Stephen Ku, Neil Arce and Pam Solilapsi.1

Valkyrie the nightclub has two floors in a cavernous and luxurious space. It has multiple VIP seating areas and six luxury skyboxes.1 Valkyrie can accommodate almost 3,000 people1 and it’s bound to get bigger. The first step for The Palace soon to rise will be two restaurants, a micro brewery, a day club with pool and 12 cabanas, and a high-end lounge and bar on this sprawling space in uptown Bonifacio Global City.1 Is the cover charge consumable? “Yes, but we highly recommend reserving a table,” says GP Reyes1

“I didn’t realize how huge our club is until I decided to do the rounds. I didn’t get to see most of the people I wanted to see. It was such a fun and crazy night. I’m overwhelmed!” said JM Rodriguez, one of the partners.2

“When all the phases have been opened, The Palace will be able to accommodate 10,000 people,” said Tim Yap, another of the partners.2 “We wanted to give Manila a new nightlife home that encompasses everything in terms of scale, a paradise of sorts, from night to day,” he added.2

The Palace, located on 9th Avenue and 36th Street in Bonifacio Global City, will be the biggest nightlife destination in the country with six distinct outlets—Valkyrie Nightclub, Pool Club at The Palace, Revel Room, Brewery, Light Café, and a Japanese lounge and restaurant.1

The second phase, the Pool Club and Light Café, will be launched in February 2015, while the third and final phase, the Revel Room, Brewery and Japanese lounge, will be completed by April 2015.1

The man behind The Palace, Erik Cua started his first club, Temple, when he was only 29 years old. Always coming up with brilliant concepts for what our town is looking for, he conceptualizes nightlife on the fast track.1

“The Palace was envisioned as the biggest nightlife destination in Asia. It is poised to put the Philippines on the worldwide clubbing map with its six truly unique clubbing concepts, the first of which is Valkyrie, the nightclub, which is a bilevel space with luxurious interiors, soaring ceilings, and state-of-the-art lighting and sound system” GP Reyes adds.1

With a recent grand opening last Dec. 4, Valkyrie has had international acts spin and perform with the likes of Dutch DJ Martin Garrix and Canadian electronic dance music duo Adventure Club. To welcome the New Year, Dirty South will fly in for The Palace New Year’s Eve Ball on Dec. 31.2
