The newspaper clipping on the wall is headlined “Peter McManus And Sons: Tavernmen For Many Years.” The date? August 23, 1948—when the bar had already been in business for 12 years. This explains McManus's Tiffany glass, wooden phone booths, and overall time-capsule atmosphere. These days, neighborhood workers from firemen and electricians to lawyers and musicians drop in to chat with James "Jamo" McManus, the founder's grandson, who is on hand nearly every night.Note
McManus is the oldest family-run bar in the city.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
