“Almost a scam.”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

The Monkey Bar sits in a prime location on South Frigate Bay Beach and boy do they know it.
This is a business designed to unenthusiastically sell dreadful products (food, drink & sunbeds) at extortionate prices to an endless supply of cruise ship passengers that will probably never return here anyway.
Unfortunately for us it was one of only two beach bars that were actually open when the cruise ships weren't in dock and so we were almost forced to suffer lunch here on one occasion during our 10 day stay at the Timothy Beach Resort.
We avoided it completely afterwards and advise you to do the same.

“Can't wait to get back to Monkey Bar!”
Reviewed November 21, 2010

Monkey Bar is true St.Kitts....
Bingy (owner of the bar) and his crew truely know how to make people feel welcome! I have been to St.Kitts many times over the last 15 years and Monkey Bar is one of the original beach bars in Frigate Bay.

The atmosphere is fantastic, with the best view of the sunset on the island ! Pop by during the day and rent a beach chair, have a delicious seafood dinner or sip on a "Rum and Ting", Carrib Beer or the deadly house rum punch while the sun dips below the horizon.
You will always feel at home here. We can't wait to be there this December!

Every year we drop our bags off and head straight over to Monkey Bar.... this year will be no different.

Bingy also owns a beautiful white SUV that he uses to offer tours of the island. Take a drive with him and end the day sitting at the bar while the sun goes down.
