Manci's History

Manci's Antique Club is a storied institution that was transformed in 1924 from an old wooden produce warehouse into a filling station in Daphne, Alabama. It was rumored that during Prohibition, cars weren't the only things getting 'gassed' at Italian immigrant Buster Manci's filling station. By 1936, all pretense was gone, or maybe just morphed because soon after, Manci introduced his customers to a different kind of filling station. Pack-rat Buster Manci, later the mayor of Daphne, filled the walls and ceiling with collected artifacts including one of the worlds largest Jim Beam decanter collections that still bring memories of a bygone era.

In 2015, Manci's was rejuvenated by local entrepreneurs dedicated to preserving the true spirit of this beloved and iconic establishment. Most recently, the addition of Buster's Brick Oven Pizza has integrated a little of Manci's Italian flare to the area. Manci's has been recognized by Esquire Magazine as one of the top 21 bars in America. The restaurant has also been featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.

Up and coming musicians entertain weekly while local recording artists return often for a jam session with the patrons who helped make them famous. It's a local favorite and you're sure to leave with a memorable slice of Daphne, Alabama history for dessert.
