What is an Aperitivo? Aperitivo is similar to the American “Happy Hour”, but it means much more to the Italians. Aperitivo is a northern Italian tradition, where you have a pre-meal drink with light snacks or finger food that’s designed to stimulate your appetite for dinner. Well, let us tell you again about our Aperitivo experience where we had another, yet memorable Friday evening over at Finestra in Solaire Resort & Casino as we enjoyed free-flowing cocktails, wine, and of course air-flown fresh oysters from Italy.
Pick your favorites from Finestra’s Happy Hour beverage selection of wines, beers, and Italian-inspired cocktails: Prosecco Toso, Trebbiano Trebi, Montepulciano Moda, Aperol Mojito, Negroni Sbagliato, Sicilian Sunset, Cardinale, Garibaldi, Beautiful Incident, and Peroni.

With their briny liquid and velvety mouthfeel, their gorgeously mottled shells and in-the-raw presentation, one can never have enough of this wonderful gift from the sea.
Sharp saltiness may give way to its subtle sweetness, mild brininess transitioning into a clean taste. These 0ysters are fresh, soft, creamy, and bursting with umami to the taste.
When enjoyed with the right wine other curated cocktails, the robust flavor of the oysters will truly come out making it an unforgettable experience.

Aperitivo Epico happens every third Friday of the month and it already started last October 19th from 5:30 pm to 10:30 pm. Reasonably priced at 1,295php ++ (*Price is inclusive of VAT and subject to service charge).
There are many ways to end the week right and experiencing Apertivos with Finestra at Solaire is highly recommended. From the moment you enter the door, you are welcomed into this world of glitz and glamour and given the royal treatment. The price point is justifiably a solid good value for money. You’d be spending the same amount also somewhere in Poblacion or BGC where the crowd is too rowdy, parking spaces are scarce, combined with mediocre food & service. As for the Fat Girls Day Out crew, we’d rather be spending our Friday evenings with somewhere worthwhile.
This is THE experience you want to have on your next Friday night. A night of carefree worry, care, laughter, and delicious bites.
