Monkey Business squeezes a whole lot of action into one little hole in the wall. This 5-year-old, casual, neighborhood gay bar is a ways away from the Wilton Drive scene, but the weekly calendar of live drag shows, karaoke nights, and game-show-style entertainment makes it a world unto itself. There's a horseshoe-shaped tiki bar on the back patio and a brightly decorated stage inside of the bar. Monkey figurines dangle from the ceiling and sit on most horizontal surfaces, but the name also means that this is a place where you can come to be silly and have some fun. The weekly game show starts at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays, and a drag show follows at 10 p.m. A buffet is served during the Saturday-night drag show, which starts at 9:30. Karaoke is from 9 p.m. to close on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Monkey Business offers happy-hour prices until 8 p.m. A $7 Grey Goose cocktail pours for $5, and a $5 Captain Morgan pours for $3.75 during happy hour.
