Okay … as a service to the group, I’m doing my own version of Angeles City Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.s).
Newbies: Beware … if you do not read this before you start asking questions or you ask something that is already mentioned in this thread, prepare for ABUSE!
First of all this is a great map for finding where things are on Fields Ave. and Perimeter Rd.:
This is an incredibly complicated topic. The best thing is to read other opinions posted in this forum, check out this website (http://balibago.org/ -- suddenly suspended/offline since 11/12/10 - let's see if it comes back) and visit some of the hotel websites.
There are probably about 100+ hotels in and around Angeles City anywhere from right in the Fields Ave, to various distances away. Just like women, everyone’s taste varies. You have to just check them out or take a recommendation from someone you know. In many cases, be prepared for more primitive accommodations, musty smells, form-rubber mattresses, and even cockroaches (in some of the lower-end options).
Personally, I can recommend the moderately priced Clarkton, but there are many others like it that are surely good as well. The Clarkton is clean, has very friendly, reliable staff, has its own in-house go-go bar, has a great restaurant, has a big pool and offers a free shuttle down to Fields Ave. from 6PM to 3:00AM.
On the upper end, I’ve heard good things about the Lewis Grand and the ABC Hotel.
I’ve also stayed at the moderately-priced Donald Paul Apartelle. It had a pleasant staff, a courtyard swimming pool and a nice location four blocks from Fields and about two blocks from MacArthur Highway. Steve, the current owner and founder, is a bit eccentric (monkeys and birds all over the place) and anything he promises you, you should be get writing.
On the lower/discount end, I’ve often heard that some of the standards are Sunset Inn, Hana Hotel, and even the Brass Knob.
This is very abbreviated and just based on my own experience, tastes and preferences.
***Big bars: Doll House, Club Atlantis, Crystal Palace, Blue Nile, etc.
Big selection of girls 30-40+ on stage. Bar fines any where from 3000 to 1500php. Not much of a personal feeling.
**Medium bars: Alaska Club, Honey Pot, La Pasha, Eager Beaver, etc.
Normally 10-20 girls on stage. Bar fine: 1300-1500php. A little more cozy.
*Small bars: Avec Bar, One Eyed Wench, etc.
Normally 5-10 girls on stage. Bar fine: 1200-1300php. Cozy, limited selection, but sometimes they “try harder”.
*BJ bars: Gobbles, Shadows, Black Pearl, Heaven, Nifty’s, etc.
Mostly on Santos Street. No “dancers”, just hostesses sitting there calling to guys on the street to come in and have a drink. For about 700php “short time” you can take a girl into one of their dingy, dark backrooms and normally get a very satisfying bj, if you can get past the surroundings. Be careful not to slip on the sticky floors. You can also take the girl back to your room for short time or long time.
*Perimeter bars: Lost In Asia, Peanuts, Matrix Brawn, etc.
Often considered one of the most unappreciated parts of Angeles City. These bars running west of Fields along Perimeter Road are often quite nice. The girls don’t tend to be top quality, yet there are plenty of gems here. Prices are cheaper. Bar fine normally is 1100-1200php, with a few exceptions.
Lots of options in AC. Check out my short list here:
It’s pretty simple. When you find a girl you want to take home, you ask her how much the barfine is. Normally, her mamasan will come confirm with you that you want to bar fine the girl and what the price is. You fork over the money, your girl goes and changes into her street clothes and she’s theoretically yours for the evening.
PLEASE NOTE: (1) Before barfining a girl, be sure to be clear with her about what you want (blowjob, intercourse, anal, etc.) and make sure she clearly agrees to what you want. (2) Make sure she is not a “cherry girl” if you want anything more than a blowjob. (3) Be sure to ask her if she is on her period (menstruation or “mens”) and whether she is able to stay till morning.
TIP: I do this in the morning as she is departing. I normally offer between 100-500php depending on her performance and whether I can still walk.
Cost: On Fields, anywhere from 3000-1500php normally. On Perimeter, 1400-1100 depending on the bar.

I’ve typed enough for now. I will edit and add to this post later and as comments come in from other experienced members here. It is a work in progress, so ask questions and make comments. Just be sure to be diplomatic/kind. I'm trying to do a favor for everyone who has had to put up with repeated newbie questions.
Later I’ll add information about getting to AC from Manila, as well as from Clark/Diosdado Macapagal International Airport, and other information that others think should be added. What else should we include?
