Overview
More
Swanky Monkey Garden is located in the true heart of Zagreb and offers guests an all in one experience. Its industrial design creates an attractive interior and exterior, cool vibes and a great atmosphere. This unique place was able to maintain the old feels from the days of being a dry cleaning factory, while creating an unforgettable experience with its two bars and three terraces. Guests can enjoy parties during the day and night every week, DJ’s, live bands or simply enjoy the breeze on the terrace. Swanky Monkey Garden is based on the concept of being authentic just like its rich cocktail selection and many other funky drink offerings. The staff is crazy, friendly and awesome and is waiting for you to come and enjoy our cool place!

Really cozy place, in the city centre. Quite ok prices, welcoming staff. It has big terrace, away from the main street. Just, it can get a bit warm on the terrace, during warm days.
