The Manchester Arms Hotel

Back in the day, The Manchester Arms hotel was known as the place for live music in Bendigo. From jazz bands and a dance hall in the early 1900’s to the current day, folk have flocked to the Manny and have had a damn good time while they’re there.
Today, the Manny is still hosting quality live music, from all kinds of solo artists through to a number of diverse bands.
While there’s a suggestion of the live music scene experiencing a decline in various live music venues, the Manny is soaking it up and continues to flourish – and let’s face it, who doesn’t like a cold beer with their favourite local band?!
The Manny have you covered by offering both, along with a welcoming atmosphere and friendly staff. While live music is always good (make sure you check out the upcoming gigs with The Mason Boys this weekend and Bag O Nails on the 8th), the Manny go a step further and also offer comedy each month bringing comedians straight from the Comics Lounge in Melbourne, as well as karaoke nights every Friday for you people who are great at singing out of tune.
Regardless of the occasion, The Manny is the perfect place to meet with friends for a few bevs and of course, good food! Jody and team make sure they’re pumping out the best tasting food to cater for all tastes and likes. These quality meals include The Manny Burger, the pub favourite Steak, a Tex-Mex Parmi and the always loved Lasagne, which is perfectly paired with the crowd favourite pale ale, Fat Yak.
Next time you pop in, we give you permission to be cheeky and mention FORTE when you arrive to receive an extra special bonus that will ensure your visit to the Manny to be an enjoyable experience. After an evening at the Manny, you be wanting to come back, time and time again.
The Manchester Arms is located at 136 Eaglehawk Road, Long Gully. Phone (03) 5443 2609
