So you already know that Father's Day was celebrated by families nationwide last month. What you might not have known is that The Peninsula Manila played host to what can only be described as daddy heaven. Named the Pen Ultimate Dream Lounge, the hotel was styled to resemble a private gentlemen's club/man cave filled with all the things that dads love: Complimentary haircuts and shoe shines, watches, bespoke shoes, hand-rolled cigars, cocktails, and a slew of cool motorcycles from brands like Ducati and Indian. The exclusive, four-hour display was held in Salon de Ning and The Bar.
“The Pen Ultimate Dream Lounge’s aim was to express gratitude for the exceptional men in our family’s lives,” said Mark J. Choon, The Peninsula Manila's GM. “The lounge gave us the opportunity to bring to life a unique and personalized way for dads to enjoy our brand on Father’s Day, while rewarding them with specially-curated and sophisticated activities that were also enjoyable.”
Check out these photos to see the cool two-wheelers that were on show. If you're a dad (or an envious millennial tito like me who wishes he was there), keep your fingers crossed for a repeat next year.
