Guest Review (28 Apr 2004)

The New Brighton Hotel, right in the heart of the Corso, Manly is an icon on the Manly drinking and entertainment scene. A hotel has stood in its place since 1880!

Encompassing the famous Shark Bar, which rocks with entertainment 7 nights a week, and the cozy new Lounge bar on the Ground floor, it is an ideal place to see and be seen, and partake in the favourite activity of young an old alike on the Northern Beaches - drinking.

Formerly a place to avoid, the hotel has cleaned up its act, making it one of the safest places in Manly for a fun night out. Under new management for the past 2 years, the Hotel is becoming renowned for its modern entertainment offering, with an impressive lineup of 7 resident DJ's working 6 nights a week, plus regular LIVE entertainment in both bars.

A must see on your night out jorney around the traps in Manly

Sarah from Balgowlah
Well all I can say is *The staff are rude and lack personality in a big way *The Dj's all play the same music. And there are 2 old Dj's there that are way past it.. Give it up guys, you suck..... * the only reason we go there is to see a sydney legend Dj Captain Kirk. *** Oh yeah, the place now looks like a brothel, with red lights shining onto the front of the building and the bottom bar now looks like a set from a bad porn movie. Oh well, I'm entitled to my opinion

The New Brighton Hotel was an awesome place to drink in, actually thats where all the Kiwi's use to drink, and on a Saturday Night there would be Karaoke run by Kiwi's, I miss those day's that's where we would catch up with our Kiwi Friends usually on a Saturday Night, well its good though to see the New Brighton Hotel has had a facelift, we hardly go down to Manly now but yes I would recommend the Hotel to anyone new to Manly

Despite the fact that it rocks 'til 3am every single night of the year (where else but the cross can you find that?), try the new lounge bar down stairs.....cozy

For everyone's info, the balcony at the Shark Bar shuts at Midnight to avoid getting noise complaints from residents near-by. They have a great line-up of DJ's on every night and the drinks are reasonably priced compered to others in Manly!!! As for the clientele, well, it is just a real good mix of people! Top place for a good night out any night of the week. BRING ON SUMMER!!!!!

A great local if you want a fairly quiet, relaxed night. A game of pool, a chat on the balcony or even a dance if there's good music.

Located at one of Manly's fine spots however i'm a bit sensitive of the fact that most of the patrons there are little bit unfriendly!

Not great, expensive drinks, bad layout, but the balcony overlooking the corso is good, which gets shut at 11:00pm or thereabouts:(
