For drinks, we have cups, openers, and a corkscrew on hand. Nearest place selling beer and wine is the 7-11 at University and Sacramento. Ledger's liquor, at 1399 University, is a veritable BOOZE MUSEUM. We do allow children, supervised by their parents.

What we're about

Since 2012, THE MONKEY HOUSE THEATER has hosted acoustic music, storytelling, comedy, small theater and other up-close acts of human creativity. We're cozy and intimate -- and proud to offer the best listening environment this side of the Great American Music Hall. And because we're a BYOB venue, and kid-friendly*, you can have a great time here without spending a whole lot of money.

*Please remember that some guests may be drinking alcohol and the content of performances might not always be suitable for kids. Also, we are a "listening room" where noise is quite conspicuous. We do regularly offer Sunday morning shows JUST FOR KIDS -- featuring magic, music, circus arts, and more!
