Back Door Monkey has come to show Miami who’s now running the town. Assuring that once you enter, you’ll switch forces and join his side. To which we can attest to, entering as skeptics but leaving soldiers!

The funky restaurant, cocktail and hookah bar was brought to Wynwood by the creators of The Dirty Rabbit. It fits right in the entertaining art and culture district, and somehow manages to stand out. Inspired by the 1940s war, the ambiance is dramatic yet laid-back in the rain friendly patio. With hanging golden monkeys and floating bonsai trees. Even a massive war tank replica turned DJ booth as the centerpiece. Though elegant, Back Door Monkey sets a scandalous vibe from the start. Welcoming guests with a bright neon sign vividly reading “Eat Sushi Like It’s The Last Pussy On Earth“. Not a hard task with their fresh raw fish and scrumptious Asian fusion cuisine.

The menu is comprised of revamped classic dishes and original twists. Offering refreshing appetizers like the Back Door Monkey Sashimi platter and Avocado Tartare. Delicious Maki rolls such as their famous Octopussy (octopus, shrimp tempura, avocado, peanut-masago, eel sauce). And warm comforting entrees including BDM “Wok” Fried Rice and Angry “Curry” Chicken. But you can’t forget the cocktails! We recommend sipping on A Pear of Drunken Monkeys. You might turn into one yourself with this blend of ketel one, pear, apple juice, lemon, and cinnamon-cardamon-basil- honey syrup!
