Manifesto is a small, intimate cocktail lounge that opened on April 10, 2009. Led by Ryan Maybee and a talented team of bartenders, this cozy bar is located in the basement of The Rieger, originally a hotel that was built in 1915. It was operated as a “Speakeasy” during Prohibition, and was frequented by the likes of Tom Pendergast and Al Capone.
Our passion for creativity and craftsmanship is showcased in our inventive cocktails, while our commitment to hospitality is showcased by our team and the warm, intimate ambience of our tucked away basement setting. While the local and national accolades are too many to list, Esquire Magazine has named Manifesto one of the “Best Bars in America”.
