It's rare to find cocktail bars in Lyon, and generally in France; it seems it's not part of the culture. But luckily I found this one, which is cozy, interesting decorated, and got some pretty original cocktails and very tasty too. I really recommend it.

We booked a private area with tapas and drinks for a group of 21 girls on a Saturday night. We had an amazing time. The staff really looked after us and the food/drinks were excellent.

Situated in full center of Lyon, The Monkey Club is an atypical place, between victorian boudoir and cabinet of curiosities. Restoring at noon with a kitchen of the market, fresh and creative, it moved in the evening in a cocktail bar mixing sharp prescriptions and spirit old school.
