The Monkey Club is a a beautiful cocktail bar nested on the Presqu'île of Lyon, a few steps away from the Lyon Opera House. The setting is very cosy and eccentric with its peculiar interior decor made of end-of-the-century "curiosities", old photographs and a colorful jungle wallpaper. The "club" denomination owes to its laid back atmosphere and comfortable seating.
The place focuses on cocktails although one can easily order a beer or a glass of wine. The cocktail list is extensive and there is no reason to believe that you won't find one that matches your personal taste. Worst gets to worse, do not hesitate to ask the bar tenders to prepare a customized formula for you! Snacks are also proposed and are quite different than the usual ham and cheese planchette that you will find in most wine bars around town. Do not miss out on the truffle-flavored toast!
The service is attentive and welcoming and the bar tenders extremely professional. This is a trendy place that does not require any particular attire and the crowd spotting is part of the purpose to sit down there and enjoy your drink. The Monkey Club also proposes a small terrace but do not expect a particularly nice view. This is probably the only weak point.
The club can get really crowded on week-ends and somewhat noisy on when the DJ does his stuff and wants you to notice that he is there.
A great place to enjoy state of the art cocktails with your friends or your date of the day!
