Mnky House (pronounced Monkey House) is one of Mayfair’s trendiest and coolest lounge bars and restaurants situated in a discreet Georgian townhouse on Dover Street. As you arrive outside the ultra-exclusive restaurant, you are greeted by the incredibly stylish door team and are then taken down the futuristic metal staircase and into an Aladdin’s cave of wonders. The dark mood lighting, sound of the upbeat latin jazz band and the endless tables filled with an eclectic mix of well-heeled diners leaves you totally awestruck.
I went to try out the brand new Sunday brunch menu and after being taken to my table I was greeted by impeccably knowledgeable and experienced waiting staff, one of whom Valentine, gave me some of the best service I have ever received. The restaurant serves Latin American food with a twist and the new brunch menu offers savoury and sweet options to tantalise your taste-buds.
For starters you can choose from sourdough toast with guacamole and poached eggs, potato, egg, and red pepper tortillas and quinoa salads. After polishing those off you can choose from the delicious pancakes topped with banana ice cream, waffles with fresh figs and banana bread with syrup and ice cream.
At Mnky Hse there is so much attention to detail from the presentation of the food, decorated with flowers, to the napkins which feature cute little plastic monkeys on top and every one of your needs and requirements are catered too.
You can accompany your brunch or meal with the finest champagnes from Ace of Spades to Dom Pérignon and cocktails including Cucumber Fizz, Floral Rose, Passion Fuit Coupe and Haig Club Cocktails.
Live performances from funk, house and jazz musicians take place every Wednesday and Sunday and during the evenings the restaurant is transformed into a trendy lounge, playing house and chill out music. For lounge table bookings for the evening club a minimum spend of £500 is required.
If you are looking for somewhere trendy, vibrant with great music and an incredible menu then Mnky Hse is the place for you and it will leave you with a truly unforgettable experience.
