Arcana Lounge in Greenhills Is Your New Hangout Spot
Food and entertainment, malls, and restaurants took the heaviest blow during the pandemic. Because of limited gatherings and restrictions on dining out, many businesses were forced to shut. But while some may have closed, new ones have started to open now that things are slowly going back to normal. One of them is Arcana Lounge.

Our idea of gathering (and level of comfort) has changed the past two years, which has also forced businesses to reinvent their services, including Arcana Lounge, which is located at Promenade Mall in Greenhills, San Juan.
“This is a place that aims to inspire people to rediscover the luxury of casual gatherings through a well-curated dining experience that’s meant to be shared with those who matter most,” says General Manager Patrick Jacinto.
Arcana Lounge offers a wide array of drinks and dishes which, more often than not, make for the best hangout places. “We are open to those who are curious and sociable; those in search for new places that offer low-key luxury experiences that are within reach,” Jacinto added.
Its ambiance is only the second-best thing next to its menu. No cravings will be left unsatisfied as its food options cover a wide range of sense of taste, from Sisig Rolls, Sliders, and Buffalo Wings to Rib Eye, Porterhouse Steaks, Lamb Rack, Pork Ribs, Pan Seared Salmon, and Prawns Thermidor.
Its kitchen takes pride in upholding a high level of delicacy to its details, food handling, and processing. In a welcome dinner for select guests, head chef Edward Dimaculangan highlighted that the restaurant sources its meats and produce direct from suppliers, leaving no room for frozen and processed meat. They even make their pasta from scratch.
Arcana Lounge’s bar also offers a wide selection of drinks for different kinds of people and occasions. Try its versions of classics such as the rich whisky sour or the bittersweet freshness of the negroni. But for those who are thirsty for something new and exciting, however, Arcana Lounge has a list of signature cocktails that are worth a shot or two (okay, maybe five). The Picnic cocktail makes it a treat to remember, while the Arcana Twister is a creamy yet refreshing take on a pineapple drink, giving it a sweet taste of summer.
Arcana Lounge also has private rooms for business or intimate gatherings that can accommodate eight to 20 guests. The rooms are equipped with a Smart TV and a high-tech sound system.
Best to wear your business casual or casual elegant attire if you’re planning a visit.
Arcana Lounge is open from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday to Thursday, and operates on extended hours until 12 midnight on Fridays and Saturdays. It's located at the second level of Promenade Mall, Greenhills, San Juan
