HISTORY;

Manto was created when Carol Ainscow, a gay property developer, alongside her business partner Peter Dalton, bought a run-down building on Canal Street and it opened in 1991.

When it launched, MANTO was seen as a queer visual statement "we're here, we're queer – get used to it"

Not always universally popular, particularly with the established and more mature male community, it never the less 'broke the mould' and went on to be a huge hit with the burgeoning, younger and bolder gay clubbers and their ally pals.

in time it went on to become a catalyst for PARADISE FACTORY and when METZ opened shortly after, the two businesses changed the face and outlook of what is now known as THE GAY VILLAGE.

And so, all these years later, the organisers are planning a Jubilee reunion for lovers of Manto on Saturday 4th June at 46 Canal St (now OnBar) the original site for Manto.
