It is also located within walking distance from the enchanting Manila Bay and the city’s major thoroughfares – Taft Avenue and Roxas Boulevard.

Robinsons Place Manila is a 7-level shopping complex that offers the widest range of merchandise and services from over a thousand local and international retail shops, dining outlets, entertainment facilities and service centers. Since its establishment in the 80s, it has continually evolved to become the ultimate shopping and dining haven to over 1.5 million Manileños who live and thrive in the city. It has successfully reinvented itself not only to keep up with the times but more importantly to provide additional values to its growing number of clients and patrons.
