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.
