When you think about Chino Roces along Makati, what is the first thing that enters your mind? For most people, it would be a number of offices and condo buildings. Little do we know, this famous Makati road is also a treasure trove of beautiful home stores and one-of-a-kind art galleries. If you're thinking about exploring the city this weekend, here are some stops you shouldn't miss:

Aphro at The Alley

Aphro isn't your typical gallery—it is meant to be a casual place for art to be appreciated. Enter Aphro and you won’t see a single intimidating element, even if everything in the shop has been made by established artists. You’ll find all kinds of art here, too—from huge paintings by various artists like Felix Bacolor, Jayson Oliveria, Jojo Serrano, Erwin Leano, Kawayan De Guia, and Leeroy New to functional art like chairs, bags, and shoes. There's even a slide that guests can use when they need a little pick-me-up. 

Aphro is located at The Alley at Karrivin, 2316 Pasong Tamo Ext., Makati City. Check out The Alley’s Facebook page and follow them on Instagram.

Fashion Interiors by Paul Cornelissen

This showroom was built to impress with its high ceilings and multiple rooms that seem more luxurious than the last one. While the place has been in Makati for only three years, those behind the brand have had 40 years of experience in the export furniture business that is why you're assured that all the pieces—from the paintings to the sofas—are made in the brand's factory in Angeles, Pampanga, with materials sourced all over the world.

Silverlens Galleries

Pioneering the warehouse gallery movement in Metro Manila after being established in 2004, Silverlens continues in its adaptive tradition by moving into another warehouse space that was formerly a commissary of The Pancake House. Their new home houses viewing rooms, artist studios, offices, a library, and two exhibition spaces—a 150sqm main gallery and a 65sqm small gallery. 

Silverlens Galleries is located at Lapanday Center 2263 Don Chino Roces Avenue, Makati City.
