Success! Thanks for posting your review of Brass Monkey. You’ve done the world some good today.

Dave & Busters is better!!!

The Brass Monkey is a fun little Dive bar that i enjoy going to with small groups of people. I have fun, its good, but to be completely honest i left early to go to dave and busters on Friday night and they have cosmic karaoke in their ""show room"" You get to sing with a real band!! Its so much fun there. Plenty of space, Waiter service! Great atmisphere!! All around much better place then any other karaoke plac... view more

Worst Karaoke Bar Ever

I'd give it a 1/2 star if it would let me. The Karaoke DJ was horrible. He pointed out that he wasn't being tipped very well. It was an hour wait to get onstage when there was hardly anyone in the room, then it jumped to two hours when it got busy. Apparently, they don't have Sauza tequila even though it says it on the menu. I can say something nice about the food. The food was good. Other than that...I'll nev... view more

I miss it!

One of the places I miss since moving downtown is The Brass Monkey. I usually ate there once a week. They have great daily specials, especially thier roasted chicken and good salads and sandwiches.

Worst place ever!!!!

3/3/09 My friends, husband and I went to this place. The first time for most of the 8 person group. The overcharged a few people and when I complained about the taste of the drink the ""manager"" came over and kicked us out! BUT WAIT then billed one of the guys for drinks and food we didn't eat or drink! The held one of the girls hostage while the guy went to his car to get more case to pay the bogus bill. \r \r ... view more

Few of my friends came to have a good time and after 20-30 minutes we left in disgust. There was a brunette waitress working at night on 03/21/09 that was a real money grubbing ""person"". I ordered 3 beers for total $18.00 when I gave her a $20.00 she told me ""ok that's twenty"" I looked at her like what? She said ""this is how I make a living so it's twenty"" To get a tip you EARN your tip if she would of ga... view more

All in all, a fun night

My girlfriend and I are avid karaoke peeps. We just moved to LA from Santa Barbara and have been searching for good karaoke spots. So far, Brass Monkey has been one of the better singing spots, but has a few problems to be aware of. Let me preface this review by saying, in Santa Barbara I was a singing bartender at a popular karaoke spot and my girlfriend has KJ'd on a few occasions for her uncle who has one of the b... view more

Not on my watch...

First thing I walked into this bar all I wanted to do was go straight to the bar. I had a waitress jump in front of me blocking me from the bar. She said, ""can I help you?"" I said, "" oh I just want to go to the bar thank you"" She said, ""oh that's fine I can take your order""....mind you I see the bar has people seated all around it. I say, ""can't I just go to the bar??"" She say's ""oh I can help you"" A li... view more

Real cool bar

i enjoy myself at the brass monkey. i went on a friday night and it was great. The drinks were good and you got them in a timely matter. The Dj was great totally had the whole bar rocking. men to women ratio was great 5 to 2. Most of the guys were cute and friendly. great place to meet new people. And the hot wings are good too.

If you want to get sick this is the place to be.....

I ordered some calamari and it came in stale, I told our waitress if its possible to change my order and she gladly obliged so I ordered chicken wings and guess what , it came in freezing cold like it came out of the fridge. I was really disappointed and I called our server back to see if I could get my money back and you know what she told me....I can't give your money back coz they will take it out of me...WOW if t... view more

I like this place...

I've been going to this place for the past three years on Friday's after work. It's a small place but I like it. The food is good and prices are very reasonable. Drinks are a little costly but if you ask for a drink in a particular way they will make it for you. Waitresses are very friendly (especially to guys)... The regulars are very friendly with new people and welcome new comers. I really like this place... Parki... view more
