Music Corner: A New Jazz Oasis Rises at the Heart of Greenfield

Thursdays now have a new musical twist as Greenfield District recently launched “Jazz Fest Thursdays”, an upscale yet relaxed outdoor evening music venue. Bringing together the best local jazz performers to provide a diverse weekly musical scene—from veteran jazz acts to up-and-coming artists—Greenfield has surely touched a chord with music lovers and outdoor market enthusiasts alike with Jazz Fest Thursdays.

“We envisioned Thursdays at Greenfield District as a jazz mecca in an elegant yet lounge-y outdoor market set-up that is perfect for unwinding with friends, family members and fellow music lovers,” explained Atty. Duane A.X. Santos, executive vice president and general manager of Greenfield Development Corporation, the real estate force behind the 15-hectare Greenfield District. “Imagine—the wide, tranquil expanse of the Central Park transforms itself every near-end of the week into a place where jazz is celebrated and kept alive.”

Jazz Fest Thursdays was opened last March 23 by headliners such as The Brass Munkeys, (a New Orleans-style eight-piece jazz band), and Ms. Zia Quizon. Enhancing the musical experience was a gastronomic feast featuring not only famous Greenfield District restaurants, but also some of the best and most popular bars and dining spots from nearby Kapitolyo. These include Persian specialties from Habib, Japanese classics from Ramen Bar, Spanish dishes from Montaditos Y Mas and Calderon, American selections from Pitmaster’s Smokehouse, craft beers curated by Kapitolyo Brewing Co., and new and old world wine vintages from Quo Vadis.

Greenfield District is located in bustling Mandaluyong. Highly accessible along the main EDSA thoroughfare, it is also right next to the Ortigas central business district, and within the “golden triangle” of Makati, Manila, and Quezon City.
