Fields Avenue, made famous during the rip roaring USAF Clark Air Base Vietnam era, has perversely grown since the closure of the base following the eruption of Mount Pinatubo.
Now cleared of traffic from mid-afternoon, it is commonly known as "Walking Street".
It is a drastic improvement, now not having to share the street with Jeepneys, trikes, cars and delivery trucks, it is easier to relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of what must be the entertainment capital of Asia (and therefore, for people like me, who are drawn to the Far East, arguably of the World!)
At the start of Fields, on the corner of MacArthur Highway MacDonald's, as always, has location!
Paradise Beer Garden
Paradise Beer Garden - a popular people watching place is next, before a good selection of bars leading up to the corner of Fields and Santos Street - where another prime people watching site - Kokomo's is located.
A great place to grab a delicious, inexpensive snack on the way is the Shawarma Center, a great source of "blotting paper" to soak up the days excesses.
Santos Street has always been the home of some of the smaller bars, including Black Pearl and Flamings, two of the oldest Angeles Bars.
One place not to miss for Mexican food officianados is Tequila Reef Restaurant.
Back on Walking Street two long established bars Rhapsody and La Bamba continue to entertain.
Down Raymond Street you will find Angeles' English Pub - The King's Head (formerly Roy's Bar).
Midnight Rodeo have relocated in the same block, a great live music Venue!
On the corner of Zeppelin Street and Fields you will find another popular expat bar We 4 U - with great street views.
Reaching Checkpoint Margarita Station - formerly Margaritaville - is a great meeting place, serving good food and drinks
