Inspired by 1920s Shanghai, this Asian restaurant and cocktail bar knows how to take us back to the decadence of Old Shanghai.
Tucked away in Hardware Lane, Golden Monkey features an array of Asian delights to satisfy your eager taste buds. From Chinese Yum Cha to Japanese Izakaya, you can grab yourself a hearty meal or a casual bar snack. There’s coconut risotto balls, Shanghai fries and even the iconic xiao long bao dumplings.
But wait - we haven’t told you about the cocktails! They’ve got everything from Espresso Martinis for the Melbourne hipster, and Emerald Peach Mojitos for those who like things a little fruity. To further maximise the good vibes at Golden Monkey, they’ve got live Jazz music every Tuesday night, and R&B every Thursday, and live DJ seshes every Saturday.
Golden Monkey even has a secret club for Rum lovers. On the first Monday of every month, you can indulge in rum tastings, rum cocktails and more. Perfect for date night, a night out with your mates, or even to hire for a private function, Golden Monkey is all things Melbourne.
