Manhattan's Bar stands at the top end of Stockton-On-Tees high street and is a public house that has changed it's name a number of times over recent years. It has been known as Number Nines and then Fitzgeralds before taking on its current name in the Summer of 2005.

The pub itself is a large open area with a prominent bar situated in the center. Downstairs - now where the male and female toilets are situated, there used to be a cellar bar that was frequented by the biker crowd.

A steep, cold stairwell leads up to a highly decorated room that is being used as a sports gym/kick boxing room and above that, as the stairs continue, is an officially abandoned apartment that was once lived in by previous landlords and landladys. It is up here - and the attic above the apartment - where out investigation would focus.

There is not much information available on the history of the pub and more specifically, the building and site itself. Other than the recent name changes of the public house, we do know that sometime in the 310 year history of the building it has been used as a gentlemens club, a workhouse and an alledged tuberculosis hospital.

Once we have confirmed information on this, we will update this section accordingly.

I'd fancy going back here - forget about any ghosts and such - the entire place is just spooky and creepy - well, upstairs anyway .. but it would be good to get downstairs in the bar and cellar area as that is supposedly the most active part of the pub.

Well, the 'uneasy feelings' are all part and parcel of these things aren't they? To me they are anyways - want to feel scared!
