Bacolod Bar: Retro KTV at The MarketPlace

Bacolod Bar List | Mea in Bacolod | Retro KTV

Retro KTV at theMarket Place is a new Bacolod bar that’s a little bit different than most bars here in the city. It’s retro-themed, it has disco KTV rooms as well as an upper deck, and Barbie – their unique, head-turning barbeque grill.

When you’re at the MarketPlace, it’s easy to spot the KTV bar because it is just across Nena’s, the restaurant that serves the infamous chicken inasal. You can’t miss it! It has red chairs and tables outside, and a barbeque grill that looks like a car.

Barbie and The Drinking Coach

Bacolod Bar List | Retro KTV - Barbie and The Drinking Coach

When I, along with other Negros Bloggers, visited, we were greeted by The Drinking Coach and Barbie. The Drinking Coach, also known as Mr. Manuel Barandiaran, oversees everything at Retro KTV. He also owns and manages Bounce which is a mobile bar. He is called the drinking coach because he entertains guests with drinking tricks during private events at the sound of a whistle. Barbie, on the other hand, is a 1970 Volkswagen Beetle that was brought to life and custom-made for this Bacolod bar.

Retro in the Small Details

If you miss the disco or retro era, you’ll love this place because The Drinking Coach made sure that you can feel the groovy vibe even in the smallest details. This is what the tables and placemats look like from when there was daylight.


Some of the details on the floor are no exception too.


Retro in the Big Details

Did I mention that this Bacolod bar has several KTV rooms that are open for rent? Well, it has and each room is also retro-themed, complete with disco lights and a pole, yes a dance pole, in some. The room rates are consumable.

The Menu

Another thing I love about this place is the menu. You’ll smile everytime you read the name of a dish because it’s either a song or a popular movie title. Below, are some of the dishes they serve.

Ice tea and Mojito

I would recommend that you guys try the mojito and the mudslide. The mudslide is really good. All the drinks they serve are also available at Botella which is also run by Mr. Barandiaran. It’s close by Retro KTV. It’s a couple of steps away.


Another Bacolod Bar – Botella


Personally, I would go here just before sunset, hang out at the upper deck or second floor, while sipping on my mudslide or an ice cold beer. You should be doing the same! Hope to see you and your friends there soon!
