Good place. Nice selection of beers. Try to get to rooftop on sunny days. Food selection is standard. Has 3 floors, bar dining and rooftop.

Wide selection of beer, good service. Come earlier in happy hour, it is cheaper. Roof top bar is definitely "must go"

Visited here after dinner @Honshu. Fun and the service is attentive. Good selection of beers. I believe Honshu & Iron Monkey are good match places to have fun.

We spent our first evening of our vacation at the Monkey, had drinks and light bites downstairs which were fine and then moved up to the rooftop bar later in the evening. Pub has a great selection of beers but after frequenting other establishments during our stay it's clear the drinks are overpriced. For what we consumed Our bar tab... More

It was very crowded. Good beer selection. But it was hard to order from the servers. The third floor bar is the best.

I would give this place 5 stars for its beer selection - wide and varied. The rooftop bar is a great place to hang out in the evenings, but it does get crowded so try and arrive early. Haven't tried the food. Staff were pretty helpful given how crowded it can get! The interior bars are rather narrow so difficult... More

Came for dinner during a business trip. Rooftop had partial view of one world observatory and was small, simple yet relaxing. The beer choices plenty and fulfilling. Cocktails were limited yet full bar available. Meals were tasty. Arrive before the rush hour for premium seating, however 1st and 2nd floor also has indoor seating. The bartender was super friendly, wish... More
