Save yourself the tuk tuk ride to blue lagoon, this is the number one destination for party animals and those looking to meet new people alike. Belly up to the bar, put your pin into your home town after completeing a shotgun with your favourite bartenders (Jenn would be my preference, but Brad may come in a close second) and then try your hand at beating any Canadian you see at our national sport of beer pong. Careful though, every bartender in this place plays drinking games for a living. If you're not looking to drink, you can still come here and have an awesome time meeting new people as the entire bar lends itself to an atmosphere for making friends. After midnight curfew follow the bartenders to the next hot spot and you'll continue to be in for a great night.

A group of us were walking around a bit before the rocket festival before I spotted this location. I'm extremely glad I suggested we stop off for a drink. We ended up partying with everyone there until it was time for everyone in the bar to do a shotgun (if you don't know what that is, ask anyone still in college). Afterwards we all trekked down to the river to watch the rockets and continue our party. The staff was easy going and fun to drink with.

Make sure you get to play beer pong, pool or a get shotgun :D . Its such a good place to drink at. Make sure you get the free drinks between 9 and 9:30. And play Kings Cup with them at the second tubing bar :D

Fat Monkey's is a perfect spot for some alcohol-fueled wild nights. A pool table, several beerpong sets and more entertain a young, outgoing crowd 7 days a week. Beware of the occasional lady boy!
The bar closes at midnight. Plenty of options are available afterwards.

Had a good time in this bar. It's like they rounded up all the hostels in VV and dropped all the travellers in fat monkeys. Lively with lots of nice people, pool and beer pong. Certainly on the lively end of the scale!
