      An unpredictably Happening Place. Came in on a weekend afternoon shortly after opening in August and in a few minutes someone was setting up cameras for what turned out to be an exhibitionist sex session in the back patio. These two went at it for the few of us who were there, then I stepped in to rim the top man while he was having at his bottom boy. That was all he allowed me to do before he exploded in his boy.

      my top 3 cruise bars
      Manhandlers back barn area is really hot on a warm summer night. Between midnight and 2am on Fri or Sat nights are best. But also venture up north and go to Touché and Jackhammer too. Touches back room and The Hole at Jackhammer have a lot happening late night too.

      Love Back Room/Patio Bars
      I thought that Touche was my fav Chicago bar but now I'm thinking that Manhandler may be fun, too. Can someone tell me their fav backroom/patio bar in the city? I'll be there soon!

      One drink minimum but they're cheap & strong, well worth it.

      First time since 1987
      My kind of bar.It was quiet last Monday night July 8/13 i was only in Chicago one night.Someone told me to go there. 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.

      great place for anon sex
      Have stopped here each time I've been to Chicago the past couple years. Been serviced well by the bartender and and customers out back. Last time I was there, I hooked up with a beefy black guy that loved white cock. He took me to a corner and took care of me. Later, same evening he came and found me in the bar and took me out back again, whew, thought that might be it for the evening til a twink grabbed me and let me take care of his rear while he serviced another guy. Great place to hookup. I'll be back

      Walked through, non particapant.
      Since 1980, Manhandler is a Chicago institution serving men of all persuasions. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ It get's better with age? ------------------------------------------------------------------------ This is the place to go if your girlfriend just refuses to return the favor.... if you know what I mean! ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Enter this late 70's saloon and you might not find anyone inside except the bartender, go way in back by the bathrooms and exit to the outside patio area, this area too may be void of peeps.... but dare go back beyond the wooden stockade fencing and here you may find it surprisingly packed with two legged Iguanas willingly scouring about looking for live underwater snakes to devour.......! These male yard lizards are looking for a feast! ....and many str8 men cum here just for this free service! ------------------------------------------------------------------------- ...But do buy a drink at the bar before you take that walk back, you just can't be rude! Best in Summer but, open all year 'round! SHHHHHH! Keep it under your hat you came by! ------------------------------------------------------------------------- I wrote this for a friend of mine, long gone,,,,,,,

      Yup they know what they want
      Went here as a last ditch on Thursday looking to plug some hog. Whew - got shown who was in charge and took it real hard. These guys know what they want and how to have a great time - all with a thanks, a few smacks on the ass and an invite to suck to boot! Who was I to offend or disappoint :)
