1914 Roselawn Ave
Monroe, LA

Blue Monkey Tavern
(318) 324-9864
819 N 3rd St
Monroe, LA
Description
Blue Monkey Tavern, located at [Address], has a smooth and chill vibe. It's not the kind of place where you'll be dancing on tables, but it's no dive bar, either. A good mix of laid-back décor and casual comfort. -Review of Blue Monkey Tavern

Elevation
(318) 387-7777
408 Washington St
Monroe, LA
Description
Elevation - Why go to bed when you can have another drink? At Elevation, located at [Address], the party marches into the late, late hours, as they have one of the best all-night parties.

C & J Sports Lounge
(318) 324-9864
2 Louisville Ave
Monroe, LA

C & J Sports Lounge is the type of place you start off your night. The drinks are cheap and strong but the crowd isn't the type to get the party started. Grab a quick drink here and then head out to the real party. -Review of C & J Sports Lounge

3227 Louisville Ave
Monroe, LA
Description
Mickee's Billiards & Ballgames - Want to throw a huge party with 300 of your closest friends? Mickee's Billiards & Ballgames is probably not the place to do it.

Oasis Daiquiris
(318) 343-7953
123 Desiard St

Bangkok Bar

812 N 3rd St
Monroe, LA

Deja Vu
(318) 323-3352
2003 Tower Dr
Monroe, LA
Description
Deja Vu - They could have easily filmed a scene from "Sex in the City" here. With its posh décor and sexy, dimly-lit interior, Deja Vu makes for a killer date spot. Located at [Address], it's a little classier than the pub down the corner.

Mickey's Pub
(318) 388-0441
3225 Louisville Ave
Monroe, LA
Description
Mickey's Pub, located at [Address], is your garden variety pub. It's not going to win any raves of "Hottest. Bar. Ever.," but it's a serviceable place to relax and unwind. Just keep your expectations grounded. And there's something to be said for beers that cost less than $14 bucks. Review of Mickey's Pub.
