I went to Drynk with a large group of friends to celebrate an occasion. We had reservations made a few days earlier but the staff somehow didn't know about this. We were told to wait while they figure things out and in the meantime a young man checked our ID's. Some of us were from a different state so he took our ID's and then went somewhere to examine them closely I assume. All of us are 21 or older and had appropriate identification and were following the dress code. While he was gone, the hostess came back to seat us. Shortly after we were at the table, the guy came back with our ID's saying how all of them were suspicious and that a police officer will come later in order to scan them and verify that they are real. We didn't have a problem with this since we had nothing to hide. However, it was strange that they let us order drinks even though they thought our ID's were fake... It seemed like they wanted us to spend money there no matter what so they let us stay. The police officer never showed up and after having food and drinks the clubbing had started and more people were arriving. Earlier in the night the place was pretty empty although it was a weekend night. A few hours later, some of our friends went outside to smoke and were not allowed to come back because of their ID's even though they were just inside. The staff even said that they aren't supposed to let people from out of state into the club which is ridiculous! At this point part of the group chose to leave along with the people who couldn't get back in. Our night could have been much better but the staff's sketchy behavior ruined it for no legitimate reason. I do not recommend Drynk to anyone and will never return again.

Excentric menu with a little bit of everything but all very good in a stylish setting.

Stumbled across this place after a concert at the Verizon Arena in Manch. Looks great from the outside, and the decor is really nice, modern and upscale. That's all I can say that's positive unfortunately. It wasn't very busy, so you'd think the service would be fairly good as our waitress had only our table of 5 to serve. She forgot drink orders, forgot food orders and looked generally confused. No joke, we were pretty sure she just smoked some weed before we walked in. The food was atrocious...really bad...and even the drinks weren't made right. How can someone screw up a scotch on the rocks...easy...by dumping half a pound of ice in two shots of scotch. I'm not even sure why I'm writing this, the place will surely be closed in three months.

Looking to go to a Boston club, but don’t want to travel that far? Drynk in Manchester, NH is the perfect solution; whether looking for an outdoor bar, sports bar, or nightclub, Drynk has all three atmospheres. There is no cover charge and deals are offered different nights of the week, such as open bars and discounts on drinks.

When first entering the venue there is a full bar, pool tables, V.I.P. lounges, and a dance floor to the right. Bartenders shuffle through the crowd with trays full of shots and Grey Goose bottles for V.I.P. guests. The DJ is playing house music, and remixes of the latest top 40 hits for people to dance to.

Traveling deeper into Drynk there is a round bar with TVs showing live sports games. Hip-hop and pop music is playing for those who want to dance around the bar, or around the couch seating. Only two walls are closed off with the rest as open windows to view the outdoor bar that is right out back.

The outdoor bar is more relaxed; there are canopies, barstool seating, and couches for guests to lounge around. The bar is covered in bamboo, and dim lights are placed all around creating a summer feel. The music playing inside is loud enough to hear, and there is an outdoor bathroom so guests don’t have to travel back inside.

Be careful in ordering a drink before heading to the bathroom, since they are not allowed in restrooms. Drink prices range between $2 drafts to $7 mixed drinks.

Drynk is recommended to all young adults looking for a night on the town at an affordable price. Be sure to arrive early if planning to drive; there is no parking lot, leaving street parking as the only option.
