Monkey Bar 181 St Georges Rd

Pauline and Leanne’s wee bar serving up quality local, organic and biodynamic beer, wine, cheese and nibbles.

Our wine list is sourced from small vineyards we have visited and through recommendations from people we know. Our tiny footprint bar is lush with plants and decked out with found objects and recycled timber furnishings finished with bio oils.

It’s comfortable and cosy and we love to play an ecclectic array of fabulous music! In fact, bring in a record and we’ll cue it up on Carmen’s childhoood 70’s stereo.

Media for Monkey

Monkey had a mention in Max's Allen's article 'Raising the Wine Bar' in The Australian, Wednesday Dec 10. Max writes about heaps of fabulous bars across Australia and then ends with a state based list of 'where winemakers drink'. Monkey flies the flag for Melbourne thanks to some cool local winemakers who love our little bar.Thanks for the vote of confidence Dave of Ar Fion and Salo, Luke Lambert, Tom from Bobar and James from Jauma (SA).
