Cheap and good food!

When we got to Byron Bay, everyone talked about Cheeky Monkeys and how good of a night out it is, so we thought it we would give it a go. The food and drinks were cheap, which is always hard to find in Byron Bay and Australia in general!! Although it was a week night it still had a great... read more

The bouncer hauled my friend out after only a couple of drinks and wouldn't let him back in even though he was practically sober. He gave no explanation as to why he was getting kicked out. Then we talked to several guys later in the evening that shared similar experiences of the bouncers treating them poorly. Meanwhile some of the... More

Absolutley loved this place! Came in for State of Origin Night and had a ball! Staff were awesome. Music was epic and we danced up a storm! Drinks reasonably priced especially for Byron and food was awesome - Try the spicy chicken burger - delicious!

They just try to scam you all the time. From paying more to get in than anyone else to getting a smaller beer than others. And don't try to talk to staff. They do not listen and don't treat you very well. I was just treated so bad and it makes me very sad that every staff in there where... More

Seriously the worst place I have ever been to. No self respecting human should go here. It gives byron a bad name and the people in there are the kind of travellers who are sleeping their way around the world. Girls take their clothes off for free trips and you get oggled like there's a price tag around your neck.... More

I've been coming to Byron with my mates for at least 10 years and we often spend a night at cheeky monkeys for some fun table dancing however it seems the tides have changed. This year myself and friends witnessed the worst bouncer discrimination I've ever seen. After a couple of pre-drinks we made our way to cheeky monkeys only... 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
