The Oldest, Rowdiest and Cheapest Pub in Manly
The Old Manly Boatshed

The Old Manly Boatshed really is old. In fact, it is Australia's longest running live music venue and comedy club. This charming little pub is located on Manly's main mall strip, next door to Movenpick.

Upon first inspection, the old boatshed appears to be a hole in the wall, with a narrow staircase leading down into some dingy dark basement. However, the live music and low-key vibe really give this place its rustic edge.

If you're low on cash but looking for a fun night out, this is the place to be. They do hilarious comedy nights every Monday for just $8 entry. Otherwise, check out their website for the monthly events calendar. You'll find it packed with awesome live rock bands that play all your classic favourites. This is usually free entry too, so chug a few cheap beers and hop up on the dance floor.

You can't go past their cheap and tasty pub grub. The beer battered chips are only $6.50 and they aren't stingy on the servings. The menu consists of classic fish and chips, burgers and pasta dishes.

Why not make a night of it and ride the ferry over. The fresh sea breeze will get you in the mood and the Boatshed is only a 5-minute walk from the wharf.
