I came here to celebrate a friends hens night. While making a decision whether to pay the $10 cover charge for a maximum of 15 seconds, we were aggressively yelled at by the management to make a decision or leave. I don't know where this aggression came from but certainly not good vibes from management!

We were looking for nightlife in Byron and suddenly some woman gave us flyers to Cheeky monkey. We went in and first it was quite quiet (don't let this fool you). We got free champagne for the whole night! Suddenly the whole place was lit and everybody was dancing and having fun! There were kinda stairs where we could dance... More

Had a awesome night out here. Came on a Thursday night and was busy with good music and entertainment. Won a free day trip to nimbin and they gave free drink for my birthday. Made my night fun, special and memorable. Staff are friendly and outgoing. Cheap dinner prices too. Recommend the steak!!!

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.

Thank brynnjhart
