Monkey Room - This Washington Heights neighborhood fav is a laid-back coffee shop by day and happening dance club by night. Weekdays are distinctly local, with a diverse and mixed-ages after-work crowd enjoying happy hour drinks and usually sticking around long after happy hour. There’s no food, but the friendly bar staff keeps menus and will let you order in from neighborhood establishments. Tuesday nights feature a well-attended trivia contest, and everything is half-off for the ladies. The Monkey Room takes on a party vibe on Fridays and Saturday nights, when DJs bring a younger and more upscale crowd.
