You can now experience a little taste of Staten Island close to home. Reality royalty, Angela “Big Ang” Raiola, just opened an outpost of her bar Drunken Monkey right here in South Beach. Miami Monkey is the perfect spot to grab a drink after a fun day at the beach in your bikini top and flip flops. This primate themed hot spot is hidden on the second floor of the Netherland on Ocean Drive. If you can’t find it, don’t worry, it will most likely find you. You may get “tagged” by one of the girls in black bikini tops and pink lipstick with a sticker you can trade in for a shot. But you really can’t call it an experience unless you spoil yourself with their signature Mango Monkey Martini. This frozen treat is sweet, refreshing and twenty dollars. On the flip side, it’s served in one of those insanely oversized glasses that can only be found by our beautiful beaches. Besides the booze and sweet cocktails, Miami Monkey features karaoke nights, TuesGays and a daily two-for-one happy hour from 4-9.
