Parañaque’s heritage Palacio de Memoria and Poblacion’s gem Run Rabbit Run come together to give you an experience like no other.

Introducing MosPhil by RRR, a bar encased in a decommissioned Ukrainian Antonov 24-B aircraft, serving exclusively crafted cocktails by Run Rabbit Run.

Inspired by the swinging 1960s and radical 1970s, MosPhil by RRR revives the nostalgia when dressing up to fly was the vogue and cocktail experience was ethereal. 

MosPhil Lounge

An original late 1950s to early 1960s Antonov An-24B, later used by MosPhil Aero—a short-lived airline based in Makati from 2005 to 2006—operated both domestic passenger and cargo services, with a planned Zamboanga–Sandakan–Kota Kinabalu route.

Now operating as “Mosphil by RRR,” this “plane by day, bar by night” is an ideal spot to unwind and relive the period of a funky town Manila, curated with vintage mid-century modern furniture and curios

Run Rabbit Run

A quintessentially exotic take on classic and modern cocktails, the trademark Run Rabbit Run taste is a carefully blended mix of freshness, spice, heat, and exotic herbs. Add in RRR’s obsessive need to perfectly balance out all of these elements, and you’ve got yourself a Run Rabbit Run cocktail.

Pen and watercolor on paper, with one depicting a dancing couple; the other, a conversation between two women, which, in English, goes, “Mrs. Marchioness, I have just detected a thief in the library… What do I do? Do I call the police or look at him?… Let’s take a look! Bring Señorito’s hunting horn.”

This French antique globe charts what the world was like during the fin-de-siècle; each country is color-coded depending on which former world power used to rule them. Naming China as “Empire Chinois” and the Pacific as “Le Grand Ocean” echoes how the past feels like a foreign country.
