Manhandler Saloon *

Cruise bar with an active patio/backroom
The Manhandler is an old-school mainstay from the days when that area of Lincoln Park was the gay strip. It's a throwback to a different time and attracts a crowd looking for cheap drinks and cheap thrills. Its outdoor patio accommodates up to 40 people on nice nights.

I got into action on the patio with 2 kinky guys afterwards we talked in the bar and one drove me back to my hotel and we exchanged emails and are was a very hot summer night.Sleazy bars are friendly bars.
