Had enough of all the ‘end of season party’ nonsense? Well unlucky, because there is one more to go and it’s the only one that matters really. As the official venue for the Grand Montet closing after party, well not really official, but officially the best place to be! Don’t fret – We’re not closing. We’ll be here all through spring and summer to supply you with all sorts of activities such as ping-pong, pub quizzes, tasty food and live music, not to mention the continual flow of cold beer. Anyway – to the point – It’s our 7th annual end of season party and we’ve got everything that’s on this digital poster for you and we’d love to see you there. Ping-Pong might actually be Beer-Pong by the way! Vous en avez marre de toutes ces “soirees fin de saison”? Rate, il vous en reste une! Et certainement pas la moindre: Nous organisons l’After Party officielle de la fermeture des Grands Montets (pas vraiment officielle, mais officiellement la meilleure!). Pas de panique nous ne fermons pas pour autant! Nous serons la tous les jours qu’il pleuve ou qu’il vente tout au long du printemps et de l’ete avec notre nouvelle table de ping-pong, nos quizz, notre carte legendaire, de la music live et bien sur un flot continu de biere bien fraiche. Revenons a nos moutons: C’est notre 7eme soiree de fin de saison, et pour resumer, nous aurons tout ce que vous pouvez voir sur le Poster… a ca pres que le ping pong se transformera tres certainement en beer-pong….
On se voit la-bas.

Glen Plake reckons it’s all about getting back to basics…
(Glen is a member of the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame)
“In the 1970s, people said, If you don’t make snow said you won’t be a ski area open for business. Now resorts make tons of snow and the numbers are still dropping. I call bull on it. If we don’t get one natural snowstorm, nobody goes skiing. So why waste all this time and energy?
In 25 years, we need to realize that skiing isn’t a winter sport—it’s a snow sport. You ski when there is snow. People will ski in spring—March, April. There won’t be snow in “winter.”
It would be nice to get back to some basics. I think skiing has to remain a natural experience—I am not a fan of urbanizing the sport. I think that people in the cities are not going to start walking around the city in ski boots looking for rails. They want to get away from urban areas and go enjoy nature.”Scroll to top
If you haven’t caught these crazy cats yet this Wednesday is your last chance of the season. It’s been great having 2 epic DJ’s play at monkey nearly every Wednesday this winter. Hope to see you all there to give them a proper send off. The party starts at 10pm.
G-Stylez and Skred are back for another Wednesday of great music mixed seamlessly by great DJ’s at Monkey. They will be rockin the show from 22h onwards. That means just after cocktail happy hour and just before you start dancing like the lemur from Madagascar.
G-Stylez et Skred sont de retour ce mercredi. Ils seront rockin les platines à partir de 22h – juste après l’happy hour cocktail et juste avant de commencer à danser comme le lémurien de Madagascar
This Tuesday is going to be hot. Spring is here and the sun is out. We’re serving up a deliciously spicy curry for just 10€ and the talented duo that is the pistol shrimps will be on the stage from 9pm coinciding nicely with our usual cocktail happy hour.
The party starter Richie Delf is on the deck(s) this Friday to get your weekend off to a bang. His eclectic bad-ass set starts at the usual 10pm just after the infamous cocktail happy hour. You’d be mental not to come down and get messy with us.

Profile:IYE-95 (pronounced eye-nine-five) aka Ron Spade – the Ginger Ninja has been a DJ since 1984. Drawn to the sound of the cut, he begun scratching on a friend’s ropey old stack system before owning the fabled first set of decks. Within a few months was playing his first gig in a (strange and very ‘local’) pub. Playing at parties became a regular thing and the required years of debauchery followed. In 1995 (odd that) a realisation occurred which resulted in a return to the hip-hop that started the whole affair – DJ IYE-95 was born.
As usual Monkey is open all day on Sunday serving you a healthy dose of Live Sports, Sunday Roast, Guinness and other delicious Sunday treats to sooth your hangover. To top we have the husky vocals and smooth rhythm guitar of our favourite duo the Pistol Shrimps who’ll be starting during cocktail happy hour. That’s our kind of Sunday.Scroll to top
