    • Editor's Description
      Version 3.0 of Monkey is a better iteration of its former crowded, clubby self. It's smaller, more intimate, and it's trying to appeal to a slightly older demo (read: high school sneak-outs need not attend). But the beats remain. The music program is still hip-hop, still spun by DJs. You can still reserve a table and look like a baller drinking your bubbly, but the focus has shifted decidedly toward craft cocktails. It's as good for an after work drink on a Tuesday as it is for an all-out bender on a Saturday. Definitely worth a look.

    • Monkey is back on Julu Road newest hub with a new plan: fancy and artisanal cocktails, smaller venue and burgers. I like the deco, the music and the lighting but it is really small and the seating floor plan is a little packed. Good music but very loud if you want to go on a date, wouldn't recommend it.

      Ambitious drink menu with signature cocktails that are interesting -in concept- but, to be honest, a little pricey. The food menu is basic; they serve hamburgers with cheese and chili -or just chili- and fries also with same options.

      Went there on a Friday night for a relaxed dinner and I don’t know if they are still in soft opening or not, but the overall experience was messy. Got the wrong order for the drinks and for the food. The burger patty was almost like minced beef, it tasted okay but it was also messy. The house chili is regular and is all over the food menu. Even though we ordered cheese fries they came with chili also. The drinks are between okay and mediocre, nothing out of this world for paying 100 kuai or more.

      I think this place has potential only if they organize themselves and the service, otherwise, I wouldn't suggest a good experience there. I guess the music is pretty good but that is not enough.
