Chuggin Monkey has the best bands, But this particular band ""The Mizzbehavin Band"" was Amazing!! The lead singer had some pipes!! I felt like I was at a Vegas Show lotta fun. Bar staff was Awesome & The chicks in this joint was some of the most gorgeous woman In Tx.
I was also surprised to see an older crowd on a Thurs. nite. I will definitely bring some folks on the next run. Chuggin Monkey Rocks!!
my husband and i and our friend started our night there on mardi gras we had 3 beers and 3 vegas bombs, somehow that added up to $34 but ok we paid our tab and left...a week later when the payment clears the bank i found out they gave themselves a $10 tip, i watched my husband put a zero in the tip line and draw a line threw it , how did they get a 10 out of that i dont know but i will never go there again they think their slick stealing from drunk people and they wont remember, too bad we werent drunk!!!! dumn asses

first want to say that I've been coming to this bar for years and I have never had a problem with the staff/manager. This is one of the most customer friendly bars I've even been to. If you're looking for a good time, good drinks, and great customer service well then the Chuggin Monkey is the place to go. The staff and manager rock.

Went to this place because nothing much was open. We found that the manager had a attitude issue that needed to be resolved with the organization in the bar area. After attempting to be nice, (in order to not hurt anyones feelings) we found that the Bar amanger(guy with brown hair and a beard/stauche) was really inappropriate. He started going after not only us but other patrons of the bar for nothing!!!! he was so un-professional, other people started to leave before we did. this guy had no idea of what service was!! all he cared about was the hierarchy he felt by saying he was ""the manager""!!! never going back and neither will anyone i talk to. sorry , bartenders were great but when he got involved it ALL WENT SOUTH!!!!

I had such a wonderful time at the Chuggin' Monkey! There were 3 hot girl bartenders who were so cool to me. As a woman, other ladies aren't always nice, but they showed me a great time! The live band was awesome and afterwards the music was great. They play a variety of music from micheal jackson to new hip hop and rock n roll. Not to mention, the jager bombs are the best on the street! Overall: great staff, great service, great music!

To be fair, the first Saturday of '08 was the first time I've been in a bar of any kind for many many years. As I've gotten older, I feel less need to go out, and virtually no need to drink. But on the prompting of a friend I had not seen for many years, I decided to join her and some friends for a night out here.
The bar is very clean, and waitservice was prompt. The atmosphere was not to my taste in general, as the music mix was uneven, it didn't make me want to keep dancing, and the DJ was not much of a mixer (beat changes, gaps between songs, etc.). Plus, they had this really irritating habit of substituting words in the songs lyrics by killing the music and saying ""jagerbombs"". After a few dozen times, it got really irritating.
If there is a beer special, I guess it's probably not a bad place to go.
