    Awesome hidden bar tucked away on Melbourne's Hardware Lane. Delicious cocktails, bar snacks and a killer Oriental vibe.

About the restaurant

“Follow the Path of Infinite Divinity,

Down the Staircase of Hanging Suns,

Through the Valley of Crimson Velvet,

Into the Heart of the Golden Monkey

Swinging from the lanterns Golden Monkey is a truly special little place in the heart of Melbourne. This lounge bar is styled as an old Shanghai opium den with its moody underground location and opulent furniture. You enter a sensuous bar of sexy deep reds and complemented with beautiful oriental lanterns. The setting is just right for a stylish night on the town with friends. The vibe here is ‘lounge’ rather than wild, and most of the dining area is intimate booths sectioned off by ornate screens. Sit at low tables and have a cocktail from their award-winning bar whilst snacking on scrumptious Asian nibbles.Good times and good fortune guaranteed.
