The Meatpacking District is known for its chic clubs, expensive cocktails and bars such as the Brass Monkey NYC. Many of these locations are very exclusive and are unfortunately closed to tourists and visitors alike. If you want to get a taste of the Meatpacking District’s nightlife, Brass Monkey is definitely a spot to try.
Brass Monkey NYC – Happy Hour & Beer Garden
The Brass Monkey NYC, which is very popular with locals, opened in the summer of 2004 in the Meatpacking District and is considered as one of the hotspots in the area. The bar welcomes you to a relaxed atmosphere decorated with wood, copper and long tables where you can simply chat with others. Spread over 2 floors, there are 3 bars and a huge selection of beer. On the rooftop, there is a beer garden with amazing views of the Hudson River and New Jersey.
The restaurant is a low-key bar with good vibes, good music, nice people, great beer and delicious food. Happy Hour is from Monday to Friday 12 PM–5 PM and the dress code is casual. Definitely check out Brass Monkey NYC for a great time.
Being a photographer and creative in general, New York City, I think is the perfect place to be. I moved to NYC from Boston in 2013 and never looked back. Loving New York has given me the opportunity to do what I love and share those images with you all.
