The neon-drenched, Okinawa inspired, Japanese Rock ‘n’ Roll bar is adventurous, energetic and a little bit weird. Located underneath the Novotel Manly Pacific Hotel, Daniel San is the first chow-down eatery and rock ‘n’ roll bar to hit Manly’s iconic beach front.

Celebrating the quirky and colorful aspects of Japanese culture with a whole lot of rock royalty attitude! The venue is a sensory delight for all ages, with classic rock pin-ball machines and arcade games, kids coloring table, funky disco balls and all your favorite rock classics and dance hits on Saturday nights. Not to mention our incredible menu that ranges from the freshest seafood to your favorite pub classics.

Drop in off the beach for a feed and stay dancing through the night!
