It could definitely pass as the 2nd oldest bar in NYC. The paintings look like they could fall off the wall at any minute, the doors have long since left their frames and I'm pretty sure the ceiling is starting to cave in at the back of the bar. Came here for a Birthday party...which be forewarned: If you plan to bring more than a table load of people, plan to go somewhere else. We were actually kicked out because we were taking up too much space. And you can't really just stand around. So even though we would have continued to spend a boat load of money...I guess they didn't want our business. But then again, being the 2nd oldest bar in the city...maybe they've proven they don't need our mula. Before we got the boot, the drinks were plentiful, the wine was surprising alright for a bar of that caliber and the waitress was friendly and talked in some Europe accent. They all sound the same, no? I'm not sure what the "no cell phone" policy is all about, because it was pretty damn loud in there to start. The accept cc's but can only split a table with two. And although I didn't try the food, it all looked to be a very hearty, home-cooked, comfort menu: quiche, Shepard's and chicken pot pie, chili...and then filet mignon? Not sure how that fits in...or really if it'd be any good. I'll definitely go back.

Hungover on Thanksgiving. That is the worst state to be in on such a delicious holiday. By the time I left Manor West on Wednesday night, I think I was three Lemon Drops in plus taking Grey Goose to the head from one of the VIP tables (I hope they sterilized the nozzle thingy afterward). I don't even remember closing out my tab but here is what I remember from this place: -Lots of room to dance -Swanky lookin -DJ started off playing house, then different DJ came in and played Hip-Hop at around 10:30 -Not very many places to sit if you don't have a table -$12 for a cocktail! and they don't even put sugar on the rim for your Lemon Drop -No distinct sign out front -Still smelled like paint, just how Lindsay A. mentioned -Coat check is $3 -There are 2 bars I'd like to come back without but I won't drink as much so I'll be able to remember more and throw up less. (FYI I yakked at home, not at the club)

The owners here obviously don't care about the place as it looks they have put no money into this run down dump in years. Amazing that there are no decent gay bars on the Upper West Side. I never see this place busy and I wonder how they stay in business. Go to G downtown for a great Gay Bar experience.
