Go down the stairs and through the velvet curtains to experience the romance, mystery and decadence of the Golden Monkey. Part opium den, part Shanghai 1920s nightspot, it provides the ultimate hedonistic escape for those wanting to party with style.
The maze of wooden screens provides the perfect balance of privacy and openness - choose to watch, or be watched. The old world feel is contrasted by a modern lighting design that reflects the Shanghai of today.
Golden Monkey is all about fine drinks and fun times. Hang out at the bar, lay back in a booth, or set the dance floor on fire. Drinks are designed for a fun night out with friends. There are with refreshingly good cocktails and house made specialty shots. Shared punches are served in everything from traditional Chinese steamboats to vintage metal trunks.
Complementing the drinks list are steamed dumplings and Chinese bao, available all night long. Favourites come fresh, hot and steaming to your table, in big bamboo baskets.
The entertainment aims to get everyone singing and dancing. Live R&B, soul and pop bands perform every Thursday. DJs spinning all genres and eras feature every Friday and Saturday.
Golden Monkey caters for the solo adventurist, small groups out to celebrate life, and functions and events for up to 200 guests.
