Not a bad night out. Bouncers suck.

I suppose i would have had a better time at Cheeky Monkeys had i not been refused to be let back in after going for a cigarette at about 12:30, i wouldn't have said i was wasted and i was not the only person this happened to. Other than that a good night: chicks dancing on tables; drinks weren't... read more

I went here with four of my friends on a tuesday night (7/4-2015). Everything was good here (prices, dancefloor, people etc.)... except for the bouncers, especially an older bald guy! This guy came up to so many random people and forced them to get out of the club... and these people didn't look like troublemakers or anything. I was shocked... More

I went here tonight and I left after an hour, completely appalled. They were advertising a bikini contest tonight and when I refused to join they tried to convince me to do a wet t shift contest tomorrow night... seriously are we still in the 70s? Do these kind of places still exist? I feel so violated just visiting this... More

Last night my husband, myself and some friends were at your bar. We all had a few drinks, my husband was not a 100% but he was not bothering anyone or being raucous. The security staff asked him to leave, which is fine, it's their job. We complied, no problem. We were standing outside calmly waiting for our friends and... More

Unfortunately I'm unable to comment on anything except the joke of a bouncer on the front door. Me and my three friends were looking forward to spending a night out in Byron at Cheeky Monkeys due to all the promotors hyping this place up. I had been warned that the bouncers can be very unreasonable and after reading reviews we... More

If backpacking in Aus, this is a must do, great crowd, food, atmosphere, hip vibe, it is the hippy capital of Aus, and Cheeky Monkeys is the best spot in town to catch up with other backpackers, and locals, you'll have a ball, we did.

Top hits played often here, meal specials that were good for the price, pool table and face/body art! Fun place to dance!

Of the group of 12 that I was with 11 got entry. I, who had been drinking with this group from the beginning, did not get let in under the grounds ' I was too drunk.' They had no breathaliser or objective data that I was any more intoxicated than my friends but the subjective opinion of an ignorant security... More
