“One of the Best Clubs in the World”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2011

The week of Semana Santa was amazing and over the top at Club Manana. Although it was the same space, every night the club was transformed into a magical party environment which rivaled any world class club. The scaffolding with the DJ on top and dancers hanging /dancing in it was brilliant. Lasers and fog machines completed a truly 2000s look

With over 2000 people nightly, different visiting DJs and changing entertainment, Club Manana once again approved itself as king of the Vallarta scene.

Drink prices were 50 Pecos for the house alcohol of Absolute Azul.

Club Manana features a little bit of everything for everyone.: Quiet Sky bar terrace; GoGo dance bar with national music; Men's only area; and the biggest dance floor poolside complete with a waterfall. What’s not to love about Club Manana? It’s a not to be missed. Name second best gay club in Mexico and was in the top six best clubs in the world

“Don't support his place - spend your money at Pacos/The Ranch”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2011

Club Manana has over priced cover either $100 pesos or more per person (can't remember) and drinks that are at least $70 pesos or more. This place should drop it's cover to $50 pesos and lower drink prices immediately. Rehire and retrain staff members to appreciate sales and gratuities. If not, this place will not survive in the years to come. FYI The place down the road, new location of Pacos/The Ranch or whatever you call it has reasonable prices and 2 x 1 drinks until 12 midnight. And they aren't watered down. Althought I do miss the old Paco location.

“I have never seen a bar fall from grace so fast.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2011

This place is a total rip off. A few years ago it was the place to be. It had great entertainment, good cocktails, and was "the only place to be" in PV. I went this year and there was no entertainment to speak of. The place was dirty. When I got a drink which I paid 70 pesos for there wasn't even an ounce of alcohol in it. I watched im pour. The staff seemed to be unhappy and walking around like they were being watched be the owner. They even closed the main floor washroom on a Sarurday night because it "wasn't busy enough". I paid 120 pesos to get in and felt totally ripped off. I will never go to there agiain. I suggest you go to Paco's Ranch, or La Noche instead they are much better. Don't waste your time or your pesos at Club Manana. This place is dead!!!

“Club Manana - is the magic over?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2011

Just got back from PV, and decided to head over to Manana on last Friday (Feb 4th) to start my weekend off. Got there just before midnight, and (fortunately) was only charged $50 peso entry fee.

Once inside, there were probably 20 or less patrons. In fact I think there were more employees than patrons. I then also found out that all the other side clubs (the Ranch, the Zone, etc...) that were part of Club Manana not that long ago are now closed.

I wandered into the Stripper side of the club, now called Tease. I guess the real tease is calling it a strip club, when all you see is guys dancing in swim/underwear, no "full nudity" as they advertise. And of course there were only half a dozen patrons in this side of the bar. Apparently "skin" doesn't do enough to draw in a crowd.

So in less than 30 minutes I was leaving Manana, in a less than satisfied mood....

Now to be far, I have been to Manana years ago during a special event, and it was packed. Apparently that's the only way this place now truly gets hopping :(

“A "must go" in Puerto Vallarta”

Great music, beautiful boys, a swimming pool, and an all-night party. What more could you possibly ask for?
