“Authentic, Classic Mexican Men's Club Welcomes All”
Review of Club Social - CLOSED

Club Social

Reviewed 5 April 2013

Every time we return to Manzanillo to stay in the tourist areas of Las Hadas or Bahia Santiago we make a pilgrimage to downtown Manzanillo and the Club Social. The centre of the city is more blue-collar than old Puerto Vallarta, but is very interesting. To the east of the malecon and plaza with the huge swordfish sculpture is the Club Social. Sit down and order drinks, all priced the same, and the waiter brings tapas - delicious guacamole, ceviche, potato salad and frijoles which one enjoys on tostadas. Often there are musicians inside the club or groups just outside the doors. This place feels like Earnest Hemmingway would have been a regular!

This is located downtown Manzanilla, and we discovered it several years ago. We were extremely hot so went in to get a drink to cool down. They bring food with your drinks - tortillas, 2 types of dip, refried beans, seafood mix, cucumbers and another vegetable, potato salad, and if you have 2 drinks they keep bringing you food until you have to tell them to stop. The owners are very nice, and it has been open since 1912 I believe.

A few year ago they remodeled the place and it lost much of the old charm. Still a safe watering hole downtown

This is a guys bar where shots of Tequilla are the people choice.

The bar opened in the 50's and I started going there in the 70's. At that time they has a little box with numbers famliar to pool tables. When you shake out a number for a few pesos and your number comes up, you win a chicken.

I was told that this was an incentive for the guys who were a little late for lunch at home. When they got home with a chicken for the family, all was forgiven.

Its in downtown Manzanillo and suggest you drop by for a shot of Tequila

This is one of the oldest bars in Manzanillo opened in 1952. When I walked in I thought I would be in bar with a lot of old world charm, but that wasn't the case here. The locals in Manzanillo are not nightowls, so don't expect to be partying until the wee hours of the morning.
