Monkey Bar, Chamonix - Centre

Apres-ski bar, coffee stop & restaurant near Aiguille du Midi lift

Featured in: | Updated

Monkey Bar is the seasonnaires après-ski bar of choice: live music, happy hours, great food and a fun atmosphere.

Behind the bar they've got a selection of lagers, ales and craft beer from around the world and a whole host of cocktails – many of them tequila or mezcal-based – to choose from. If you fancy something non-alcoholic, they've got a great selection of softs & coffees to choose from.

From the Monkey Restaurant kitchen they have a great selection of Mexican-influenced dishes, from homemade burgers to tacos, delicious nachos and salad bowls. The menu is updated regularly. On Sundays, their brunch menu is also inspired in Mexico's fragrant flavours with huevos rancheros, breakfast burritos and pancakes.

They've got regular parties and events on year round, from live music to DJ sets, pub quizzes and jazzy brunches so keep an eye on our events calendar for the latest in what's on. Their food and drink offers are also legendary around town, especially their €10 cocktail and beer jugs on Monday nights.

Find them in the centre of Chamonix Sud, less than five minutes walk from the Aiguille du Midi cable car station. Open daily in summer and winter from 15:00 until 01:00 (opening at 10:00 on Saturdays and Sundays) with food served until 22:00.

  • "Great food, something for everyone, good happy hours on drinks, crazy parties, not enough free booze!" - Trip Advisor
  • "Nice afterski place for people not seeking bling-bling atmosphere. Bear is cheap on happy hour and burgers are good." - Trip Advisor
  • "Monkey has something for everyone - from younger folks looking to have a fun and crazy late night, to older folks who want a quiet drink on the terrace looking up at Mont Blanc. They have great 2-for-1 drink specials and an excellent menu that is a cut above typical pub food. The Sunday roast is easily the best in France, and maybe Europe!" - Trip Advisor
