LA SCALA RESIDENCES is a landmark at the center of the Malate tourist belt of Manila. The building has been home to the Go family on Dakota Street (now M. Adriatico) since 1952. A store named Scala Grocery which was previously on Rizal Avenue and owned by the family was moved here to serve what was then the upscale Malate residential community.
Fast forward to 2016, the La Scala Residences retains the façade that bespeaks the charm of old Manila. Now offering hotel rooms on a daily, weekly and monthly rate, La Scala Residences bears the sentimental identity of old Manila with the amenities of modern living. Designed for homey comfort, each room is equipped with quality linens, hot & cold shower, bathroom essentials, air-conditioning, personal refrigerator, cable television, spacious clothes cabinet, office desk, and digital safe. Security and hospitable room service complete the package.
The building also houses two restaurants – the La Scala Café on the mezzanine floor which features house specialty Paella Valenciana, Wine Bar, Antiques and Collectibles, VIP rooms, and a KTV room; and the Yakiniku Japanese Restaurant at the ground floor corner.
A foreign exchange counter is also available in the building, as well as a world-class salon for men and women, the Evershine Salon which also offers facial, massage, and various beauty and vanity services. A Medical Clinic and Dental Clinic (Orthodontics and Implant Center) on the second floor complete the package of services available to the valuable guests of La Scala Residences.
Today, this flourishing establishment is a testament to how the owners of La Scala Residences have kept up with the times that have changed the landscape of Manila, while staying true to the identity of the Malate community – hospitable, decent, progressive, sentimental, and classy.
