This neighborhood spot, filled with monkey-themed décor, is best known as the bar owned by Big Ang, the breakout star of VH-1’s Mob Wives (and later, her own reality show, Big Ang). But the Drunken Monkey has long been a local favorite, and even if there are no reality stars on the premises the night of your visit, you can enjoy karaoke, dancing and DJs on weekend nights, and happy hour every day.
