Long cushioned benches lined with plush pillows, Morroccan-influenced decorations, and mosque-shaped hanging lights make Blu Monkey Bar & Lounge look as if it is a hookah bar. Despite the lack of hookahs, the vibe is laid-back. Speedy bartenders and good DJs keep customers happy and the dance floor full. Unpretentious, but still crowded, the Blu Monkey is a good place to chill with good friends.
