Stopped by on the recommendation while in town for a conference. It was ladies night and the place was a good mix of locals and foreigners. All reasonably friendly. Their microbrews were solid and the club sandwich was one of the best I ever had. I'll stop by again.

There are not too many western bars in this are (unless you include Hooters, Paulane r house and hotel bars) and this bar is quite cozy and with a few outdoor seats for those who like to enjoy watching a bit of the street life of Taipei. Food is not cheap but of good quality, drinks are around average for... More

Decent food, decent beer choice, although some more cider would be nice. Pleasant staff and all the football. Reasonable prices. You can't go wrong! Don't try going for lunch though, they don't open until 5pm. Not unusual in Taipei we found out.

Hi KnightGuest, Cheers for the positive review. I don't know if this will appear on TripAdvisor before you leave Taipei to return to Greater Manchester but we do have another branch in the Xinyi District and they are indeed open for lunch. The steak and ale pie is as good as you'd get back in the UK (I'm also from... More

Bob M, General Manager at Brass Monkey Fuxing, responded to this review

Hi Y, I am sorry you found your imperial pint of Guinness expensive at NT$319 ( the actual price you will have paid). Beer in Taiwan is expensive. It is expensive for bars to buy and the price merely reflects the price we pay for Guinness from the supplier. Guinness is an expensive product everywhere and we complain as much... More

Big time upgrade to the beer plumbing and selection to ensure the beer is very well chilled and is of the highest quality in Taipei. This is my first visit in a few months and I'm impressed with the improvements.

I have been to Brass Monkey several times, it is quite popular among the foreigners in Taipei and it's a nice place with some music and dancing in the night. Good for drinks and good to spend time with friends.

Subsequent to my last visit which 'underwhelmed' me, I found myself again in 'The Monkey' to meet with friends ------- what a difference!!! It appears there has been a change of management and out have gone the surly waitresses to be replaced by much more helpful and welcoming ones. The menu too has undergone a revamp and now presents a... More

Thanks weeman55. Your previous review bringing back memories of being snuck underage into a cinema in Carlisle to watch Star Wars did weigh heavily. I am glad you took the time to re-review us. We have two Taiwan craft beers on draught and are waiting for a couple more to be released to us. In total we now have 8... More

This place opens very late till the morning sunshine, compared to many early closed clubs in Taipei. And also a great place to watch soccer games. Enjoyed the European cup here a lot.

I rate Brass Monkey. Its practically a Taipei Institution with its Sports, Ladies Night, and Parties. Recently, the menu has had a complete reworking - so the food is down-to-earth pub food and now features craft beers on tap. Its expat friendly, relaxed and a great chance to meet new people.

Went there to watch a Euro Game - bar was not too crowded even though was a Saturday night, friendly staff but nothing really exciting about the place. Only bar/pub we went in Taipei - so not sure if there is better out there.

Thank ChewyM
