I was in Byron Bay for a week, this is one of the main places to party. I ended up here 3 nights. Never ate, just partied. The staff are horrible, but the DJ was great. There's a $10 cover that normally I would not pay for a backpacker bar, but it's good fun if you're with the right crowd

Had a great night in here dancing on tables. The music was good, the food was lovely, and the drinks weren't too expensive. Bouncers are very on the ball here for getting rid of people who are too drunk- makes it better for everyone else.

Went last Saturday, in our group there was 5 of us. We had all buy $10 to get into the venue (which for a bar that pretends itself as a backpacker bar is quite high) even though we had been given 'free entry' these were not valid after 10pm. We found a spot not far from the bar with a... More

This is the place in every town where, when you suggest going, everyone says, "oh god, not there"... Its a hole, the staff are what they are, the people there are generally wishing it was better, and I have never, ever, heard so much negative chat about a traveller venue in a traveller hostel in my life. Makes me regret... More

I visited Cheeky Monkey's when backpacking and had a fab night, it has a great atmosphere with table dancing and great cocktails. It has a great mix of locals and backpackers and everyone is just there to have a good time.
