About
Swanky Monkey Garden is located in the true heart of Zagreb and offers guests an all in one experience. Its industrial design creates an attractive interior and exterior, cool vibes and a great atmosphere. This unique place was able to maintain the old feels from the days of being a dry cleaning factory, while creating an unforgettable experience with its two bars and three terraces. Guests can enjoy parties during the day and night every week, DJ’s, live bands or simply enjoy the breeze on the terrace. Swanky Monkey Garden is based on the concept of being authentic just like its rich cocktail selection and many other funky drink offerings. The staff is crazy, friendly and awesome and is waiting for you to come and enjoy our cool place!

Cool Cocktails
Oct 2019
City style, outdoor lounge bar, with vibrant atmosphere.

Young, or young in mind audience.

A blend of highchairs and cushions.

Very good cocktails.

Seems waiters are a bit stressed and wish to take payment at each order. This can be understood though, considering there is a lot of movement, which contributes to the cool ambiance.

A couple of gas heaters extend the season.
For a drink before or after dinner, or a bit of hang out as couple, or with a friend or two.

Fine price & value.

Dope Bar!!!
Oct 2019 • Friends
The place is decorated really well and the cocktails are on point. They have several sections and pool. A hostel is attached somehow but I didn’t check out prices there. But a really cool spot and I wouldn’t go to Zagreb with out stopping here for a cocktail.

Great ambiance ruined by excessive cigarette smoking
Jul 2019 • Couples
Really nice hip garden area. We would have loved to stay longer. Except for the over-the-top smoking. There was no place to avoid people blowing smoke at us. Zagreb in general has no consideration for non-smokers. People smoke inside and outside, no non-smoking areas provided. It would really improve tourism if Croatia would adapt some semblance of consideration for people that do not want to catch cancer from someone else’s bad habit.

Hi Kimberly, We're glad you liked our garden area! :) On the other hand, we're sorry you didn't find a suitable smoke-free shelter on one of our three terraces and in one of our non-smoking areas. We hope you'll be our hostel guest sometime. Swanky Mint Hostel rooms and our pool are smoke-free! :) Best regards, Ana

Swanky has it all . Glad we found the Monkey Bar
Jun 2019 • Friends
Another small path to an inside courtyard area. Swanky has a Hostel (looked good from the outside) a bike rental and the Monkey Garden Bar. Head upstairs to the outside seating area and you feel outside of the city. Drinks were good, service a bit slow but we were in no hurry so that's ok. There on a Tues night and all had seats but I'm sure it gets quite busy closer to the weekend.

Dear Colleen Z, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave your positive comments about our hostel and the bar. It is another small path to an inside courtyard area, but it not another brick in the wall :) We try to keep it unique as always and we hope our guests feel the same way. We look forward to welcoming you again should you decide to visit Zagreb on your next occasion. Cheers !

Lovely cocktail bar with a good vibe and a cool rooftop garden (no view :) ). Nice staff, great cocktails (best boulevardier in a while) and fair prices. I would definitely recommend it in the summer season. Keep up the good work!

Great drinks, amazing space and atmosfere but the service is too slow. When the waitress finally came to take our order she was a bit rude which kind ruined our experience.

Waiting and then bad service
May 2019 • Friends
After waiting for 15 minutes I asked if we can order. 3 times. Then we got a very arrogant waitress. Too bad, I love this place. Restrooms are especially cool.

A cool hang out place
Feb 2019 • Couples
I went in winter and had a great time. The bar men are friendly. The music is cool. Toilets are clean. Ventilation is good. I was told it’s even better in summer as they open more out door rooms.

Hi ! Thank you so much for your kind review. It means a lot to us that you took some time to share your experience! It is true what you say about the summer time in Swanky Monkey Garden. During warm days guests like to hang out at our terrace and hostel guests can also enjoy their time in our swimming pool. Feel free to visit us again, we will be more than happy to show you around and suggest some of our best signature coctails. Best regards!
