Golden Monkey Bar

You are here Home  > Restaurants and Bars >  Golden Monkey Bar

This award-winning bar is housed in a former brothel, due to the fact that the bar was located in the former red light district. It is rumoured to be haunted by a former bordello madam and a ghostly cat, who has been felt brushing past people but is never seen. The madam is often seen in a red dress standing in the shadows at the end of the bar hallway.
