The Monkey Spotlight


When I'm not at Bad Monkey serving the coldest drinks in Ybor, I like to enjoy the outdoors. Taking trips around the country with my trusty sidekick, Brody the chiweenie. Camping, hiking, boating, and fishing are just a few of my favorite activities. You can also find me top down, doors off cruising the causeways in my Jeep, looking for a sweet spot to set up my hammock and watch the sunset. Come in Saturday through Monday, or Wednesday happy hour, to see me and enjoy a Frośe or any of your favorite to shelf liquors. See you at the Monkey!


Rep your favorite bar
with our new line of Bad Monkey brand of T-shirts and gear. Stop by our shop and browse our merchandise for yourself or a gift to a fan.
