SquareMeal Review of Drunken Monkey

Dim sum, cupcakes, cocktails, ice teas and iconic bottled beers are not the least of the Drunken Monkey’s attractions: fans also like its louche Shanghai Lil interior, eclectic beats fresh off the decks, happy-hour price deals, poker nights and fun cocktail masterclasses for 10 or more alumnae. Highballs worth high-fiving include the mango mule, oriental ginger sour and lemongrass gimlet. Simian features (an El Dorado rum, basil and pineapple Collins) is another on-theme worthy, while cocktail jugs at £16.50 are perfect for monkeying around. Order great steaming buns of dim sum goodness from £3, along with pot-stickers and plates of rice and noodles. The golden-walled Concubine Room is perfect for discreet private bashes.

Went on a Friday night after work and I LOVED it. WE all met up just for a quick drink but then the next thing we knew the vibe was great and we were onto our second cocktail and then the DJ s came on and that was it – we stayed on until we could get a table and had such tasty dim sum for such a good price a couldn't believe it. A great place to get together and hang out with friends and people watch as well. So many types – City, Shoreditch crowd – everyone seemed at home. So the Drunken Monkey will be a regular favourite of mine. The service was fine for such a crowded Fri nite – I don't understand what people are complaining about – they were actually really nice and cool even though the bar was crowded they took time to be polite to us and explain what was in our delicious cocktails.
