A post World War 2 heritage mansion is one of the newest dining destinations in Bacolod City.

“Calle Catorce”, located at 14th Lacson Street, which is dubbed as the ‘Tourism Strip’ of Bacolod City, the architectural design of the 76-year-old heritage house has been preserved for several decades.

Margaret Villacin, disclosed that house, built in 1947 by its first owner, Vicente Martinez Coleongco, the original features of the structure remains unchanged, including its mosaic floor tiles and hardwood staircase, among other antique features.

Customers and tourists may avail of different assorted cuisines, although still prominently Ilonggo food, via al fresco and fine dining. It also serves premium coffees, and imported wines and beers.

The VIP rooms, with curated paintings and images of fighting cocks and market scenes, are also available for use.

Villacin said the management of Calle Catorce cares for the heritage mansion for the sake of future generations. Hopefully, the future generation will feel the same, she added.

Calle Catorce is also accepting hosting of events, ranging from live music performances and art exhibitions, to themed party nights.

It opened to the public on September 16.*
