The Brass Monkey was born in early 2003 as a tribute to five members of the Taipei Baboons rugby squad that lost their lives in the Bali bombing a few months earlier. It has since turned into a top spot for watching sports in Taipei city and you can count on Brass Monkey to screen big games. For big international sporting events, this is easily one of the bars with the best vibe as patrons huddle shoulder-to-shoulder to 'ooh' and 'aah' at figures shimmying over several big screens.
The Brass Monkey always airs the biggest events from the world of sports, no matter what time of day they're shown live in Taiwan. It also has a pool table, football table and a monthly pub quiz and other events to keep local and foreign patrons entertained. Although best known as a bar, the Brass Monkey has a decent pub menu as well - necessary to nourish gents who've spent hours nursing pints.
Brass Monkey has a reputation for being a hangout loved by expats, although there are certainly a fair number of locals around. But English is the tongue you'd head bantered round this bar most. Brass Monkey does also have a fairly voracious hookup bar feel to it after a couple pints passed midnight.
Brass Monkey also runs some extremely reasonable specials regularly. Monday is 'Burger Night' where your second hamburger is just 1 NTD. Every Thursday is ladies' night. Brass Monkey's Ladies' Night is pretty popular and on these nights the bar stays open until 4AM!!. The drink menu is extensive. Choose from 10 different beers on tap, 7 flavours of mojitos and much more.
