Love at first sight. That is what I felt for the clubhouse of Riverfront Residence the first time I saw a picture of the place. And when I saw this post at Ging Lorenzo’s site, my heart jumped!
Even before Aki was born, I knew I wanted to hold his 1st birthday party there. I went to the resort condo last month to pay the DP and confirm my pencil booking. This is what I saw…
The function hall has these gorgeous hanging lamps which reminded me of why we also fell in love with the chandeliers of Manila Hotel. The hall is pretty in pictures but even prettier when you see it in person. It is in the second floor of the clubhouse which is beside a very inviting pool. The first floor is open and has several sofa sets where residents and guests can lounge.
In terms of the peso power, rental is reasonably priced at 8K for non residents. This covers 5 hours of usage, AC and sound systems. They only accept two booking per day which is good because this policy ensures that there is ample time to for clean up and styling.
Location-wise, it is strategically located in Pasig, about 15 minutes away from c5. Commuters just need to take a jeep from Shaw to Pasig rotonda and then a short tryke ride.
Another plus point is the fact that RR does not have accredited suppliers. Unlike other clubhouses, renters of hall are free to get any supplier that they want.
The Riverfront Residences Clubhouse is the perfect venue for Akis birthday partey!
I was dismayed because the admin officer in charge of the clubhouse advised me that they will only provide 4 parking lots. Okay. Fine. Understandable. Our guests will just have to pay a small amount for the paid parking slots. But no! Our guest will not be allowed to use the paid parking either even if they are willing to pay. The paid parking will be reserved for the guests of other residents. Hay. Even if there are available slots, they will strictly implement the 4 parking slots rule. Pak%$#! I asked around if there are places nearby where our guests can park. Unfortunately, there is none.
As soon as I convinced myself that hiring a valet driver and/or renting a coaster van that will shuttle guests from Shang to RR are not the best ideas, I gave up on my dream venue.
