As the name implies, this is a gay bar. In fact, it is one of the few holdouts in a neighborhood that was once dominated by gay bars. (The main area for gay nightlife has now moved North on Halsted between Addison and Belmont.) But if the gay headquarters for nightlife has moved to a trendier area, the folks at Manhandler don't mind, since few people would accuse Manhandler of being trendy. In fact, this windowless bar with no dance floor does little to attract the guppies (gay yuppies) who frequent "Boys Town" to the north.
It's a great place to relax and watch some pretty hot porn, play pinball, chat with buddies, check out the meat in play, enjoy free buffets on certain days and drink with well stocked bar selections. Chicago's BEST kept secret delight... Wham bam thank you man!
