Welcome to The Funky Monkey, serving up an ever-changing menu of 
hot fresh art, live music, comedy, handcrafted jewelry, pottery, 
storytelling, author chats and more. 

Some of our creative comfort food is omnivorian, some vegan, organic
and gluten-free, and some of it is just plain naughty, like jalapeno bacon...  

We offer craft beer & fine wine, fair trade organic coffee, teas galore, 
100% fruit smoothies, baked goods and some wicked desserts, too.

Relax inside with artwork by some of Connecticut's finest artists~
or outside on our gorgeous, secluded red-brick courtyard 
(where you can pretend you're in Europe.) 

You're gonna like it here~
