Great atmosphere every time we go. Only discovered the place in October but have been coming every Saturday night since.

Always looked after well by Simon in Gin and Bear It bar. Growler bar upstairs is great fun too

This bar is well worth the visit

We arrived from Glasgow on Sat 24/9/21 and went to this bar it seemed a good atmosphere and a good pint. On Saturday night we popped in for some more drinks.
A barman with glasses on was serving and we ordered 2x Pints & 2 Vodkas to start off our night then told to take our seat, the barman brought them over and it was pints of slops we noticed by the taste.
That was our night ruined shortly after that stomach cramps vomiting and diarrhea will never be back.
Moto :- Stand at the bar till your drink is poured.

PaulM920 must be a dinosaur the Manbar is a bar available to all, with no discrimination, if he wants a men only environment then the Growlr Bar would be better for him, or his own home. I was there the same evening and it wasn’t full of drunken women there was a group of 4 ladies enjoying a night out and dancing to the DJ Toni’s music and other men and women were in the bar having a pleasant drink. The Manbar is a safe place for all people who want a good evening out whether they are gay, lesbian, trans or straight I hope it stays that way.

Favourite bar in Blackpool. Always a great atmosphere, ‘gin and bear it’ bar especially is amazing. Best I’ve been to. Staff are really friendly. Had a great time and would thoroughly recommend.

The gin bar was closed and was told the people who operate it had been pinged we kind of guessed COVID but couldn’t understand why the normal bar was open, the old people serving you were horrid and looked like they needed a good shower, the toilets stank like sewers and the floors wet through with well your guess is as good as mine, they obviously hadn’t been touched the whole day, this place has gone to the dogs avoid if you don’t want typhoid or god knows what, we didn’t even finish our drinks and left never to return!!

We and my husband visit man bar aleast 7 times a year we have done for the past 4 years, it’s a nice little size pub but theses days that’s the only thing nice about it.
We popped into man bar December last year and was shocked to see the bar man had left such a shame he was so nice and did a lot to go out his way to help customers.
We asked where he had gone and was told he had quite and they didn’t know why.
One customer said it was due to his mental health but the guy stood at the end of the bar with tattoos and shaved head said he was sacked due to stealing!!!!!!!! But we spoke to the owner who said he had just quit out the blue and that he was Not sacked that he had quit unfortunately, a lot of the customers thought very highly of him such a shame as now the staff during the day just don’t care about the pub or it’s customers. The bar women’s boyfriend thinks he owns the place standing at the end of the bar telling people what they can and carnt do.
6 times over the last 7 months we have visited your venue and this gentleman has been clearly on drugs behind the bar
Twice we have seen him and the tall women both going into the ladies toilet together and with other people.
We asked for the owners number only last month to put our complaint to him regarding the staff and some customers doing drugs and was told to leave the bar by the tattooed man (I quote) this is my f,ing bar get out your barred f,ing gay t**t
This bar used to be so nice when it was the old barman and the tall lady.
They both went out there way to help and your visit enjoyable.
The atmosphere was great and hardly any trouble now though full of druggies.
Every time we went to man bar the old barman and barmaid would make us feel very welcome and went out their way with other holiday makers suggesting good hotels and other good venues to attend on a week end.
He kept trouble out as much as he could and so did the bar maid but now everything has changed it’s the same barmaid but her boyfriend should not be allowed in as his drinking and ordering customers around and speaking to them the way he does is surly loosing this once good venue customers.
There are a group of customers that all sit in the corner on drugs and not paying for drinks I don’t think this is how a venue should be run.
On the bright side the night staff and gin bar staff are fabulous to spend the evening with.
