Food & Drink Reviews
Like New York! In Wallsend!
I once ordered a glass of wine in a Wallsend pub and the barmaid asked if I minded if she used the dregs from two different bottles (of different makes) as that’s all they had left… Needless to say, you won’t have such ridiculousness foisted on you at Manhattans which has already carved itself out a real niche with a well stocked, and very reasonably priced bar, serving everything from draught beers and lagers to cocktails. It’s open every night with plenty of stuff going on including poker night with free pool table (Tuesday), karaoke night with DJ Lee (Wednesday), Mayhem & Music with Boulevard’s Miss Rory (Thursday), DJ Matt spinning club classics and chart hits (Friday and Saturday), Party Night (including karaoke, Sunday), and, if you want to blow away those weekend cobwebs, the Hangover Dance Party with DJ Drama (Monday). They’re not adverse to sticking on some of the best tribute acts around either with doubles of Katy Perry and Robbie Williams etc going down a real storm and with late opening (until midnight Monday-Wednesday and 2am Thursday-Sunday) you can really grab some of that let-your-hair-down-and-party action.
