About Manila Peninsula Hotel:

Hotel Peninsula Manila is located on the corner of Ayala Avenue and Makati Avenue in the central business district of Makati City, in Metro Manila. It is located also in Barangay Urdaneta. This hotel is part of The Peninsula Hotels chain based in Hong Kong and is the first hotel of that chain outside of the Chinese territory.

About Escolta:

The all-day restaurant will include art deco flourishes that characterised the district of Escolta, which was the prime commercial and financial district of the Philippines in the first half of the 20th century. The name is said to have originated from the mid-19th century, when Spanish governors-general who ruled over what was then the easternmost outpost of the Spanish empire paraded down the street with mounted escorts en route to their palace and passersby would supposedly shout "escolta!" (escorts).
