The Monkey is the Best! – I went there after work with some friends and had a great time. It was trivia night - too funny. The service was great - very relaxed atmosphere - we had a great time. They where easy to find - next door to an awesome tattoo parlor - in a mellow area (not scetchy, like it is on the AVE.) cheap drinks & food. We had an awesome time & will definitely go back!

Beer, pool and a relaxed, alt-friendly attitude are Monkey's business. – The Scene
Within 30 feet of both Pete's Pizza and Dante's, Monkey Pub can't claim to offer the neighborhood's best food or fun. After all, tasty calzones are Pete's department and tons of video and bar games are Dante's. Monkey's attitude: Who cares? For one thing, if you want to hang out, have a beer and shoot pool in a nearly frat-free atmosphere in the U-District, Monkey Pub can't be beat. For those sick of the same old bar music (didn't the petition banning Steve Miller's Greatest Hits get signed into law?), the alt/indie jukebox is also a welcome change of pace.

The Draw
Even though food isn't the focus, the pub does have a small menu with a surprise special or two. As for libations, there are several beers on tap--ranging from PBR to Fat Tire--and a full bar.

Best Bar in North Seattle – This is the neighborhood bar you always wanted but never had. The jukebox is the best in Seattle and rotates. The staff of the Monkey are great people, pouring great drinks..especially Anthony. Greats taps, vintage rock/seattle decor and live bands on the weekends. Everytime we go back we are welcomed as regulars. Seattle should be so lucky to have a place like this.

I Love the Monkey Pub! – The sign outside sums it up. The Monkey Pub is one of the coolest, most laid-back places in town. Great beer, great service, relaxing atmosphere, kick-ass jukebox, and rockin' live music on the weekends. No pretention here, just good stuff. Check out the photos from "Tattoo Night" and all the Polaroids of the bands they've hosted over the years!

Raise your arms, scratch like a Monkey! – On any given night, you're bound to see many familiar faces- like Sting, WTO, yellow short man, and Cassandra. Stop on in for a game of chess or just to check out the latest in tatoo fashion.

Best Jukebox in Seattle – What a great place to take your friends... great bartenders, and the best jukebox in Seattle. Plus you get to watch all the people and guess how much money they spend to look so ragged!
