I think you mean "Wild Monkey" bar. Pretty sure this closed down 2 years ago - Sorry

That was it Trev - HK Revolution (Hells Kitchen) - Full of noise - empty of customers. Closed very early at the end of last season, not sure if it will re-open.

I'm amazed the Wild Monkey was so popular - it might have been a "slice of west African culture" to some but for me it was just a relentless, usually 2hrs+ non-stop, cacophony of noise.

For those who don't know what we are referring too:

Yes and no. Last season the "garden" was closed but Ali Babas had moved into what was if memory serves, Club 21 - next door to African Queen.

good grief young trev.

it's a toss up which is worse - karaoke or "drummin'".

you want to hear proper percussive drumming?; drumming that complements the melody and harmony in this offering from just across the border.
