The Monster is probably the most popular bar in Greenwich Village. It’s right on Sheridan Square, across from the infamous Stonewall. A happy piano bar on the ground level draws an older crowd. Downstairs, a dance floor draws younger guys. There’s a cover charge on weekends.
Although they no longer serve dinners, they continue to offer finger food, monster-sized drinks, great music, and good conversations. The Monday Sabor Latino show is extremely popular, replete with Salsa and Merengue music! Monster retains a nostalgic atmosphere in the heart of historic Greenwich Village, something often missing from the newest trendy spots.
