We were at a paint party on a friday. Cheeky monkeys had a girl to paint us all, and then we partied all night. Wear clothes you're not afraid to get paint on to. There is gonna be paint all over. Good location and local!

Stayed at the hostel opposite who gave us vouchers to use so we got a really good deal for a meal and a drink. The food portions are huge and came really quickly. Guaranteed a fun night out, full of backpackers! Great place :)

Nice bar where if you want to dance you have to do it on the tables. Fun place, reasonable prices, great atmosphere.

We first visited the Cheeky Monkey about 11 years ago on our first trip through Australia, it’s a fun backpacker/transient type bar with all sorts of good old-fashioned nonsense for those in the mood for that kind of stuff (loud music, shooters, heavy drinking) which we were totally up for 11 years ago. The place is not for us now... More

It's an ok place for cheap drinks before a night somewhere else. The Set up is confusing and reminded a lot of us of a prison. Dance floor is on steel tables so don't be sitting for too long unless you want your drinks kicked over. Pretty tacky place overall.

My friend and I went here sceptical about the other reviews we had read, about the door guys and security being 'too macho' all honesty, they were amazing, lovely and friendly. I have never felt more safe in a nightclub then I did that night. It wasn't over the top crazy where you had to dress to the nines. It... More

Was a really friendly atmostphere, $2 coronas which was amazing and the music was very good but not ear splitting and dancing on the tables is a laugh. Oh and lovely staff.
