The Angry Monkey is about the biggest boozer in Gemmayzeh, and it draws a crowd to match. The newly refurbished bar boasts a sweeping seating area, which makes it an ideal choice for large groups looking for somewhere to sprawl with a couple of pints. The corollary is that the dance space can be on the cramped side during the venue's live gigs, which take place every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday (Mia V's cover nights on Wednesday are a hoot). Part casual dive bar, part raucous music venue, The Angry Monkey is one of the straight-up funnest spots on Beirut's nightlife scene.
