Nestled into a far corner of the tiny strip mall just across the street from Mesa Community College, Uncle Monkeys exudes a certain level of charm. A cigarette vending machine glows near the door, and a wooden Native American statue stands watch over the jukebox, seemingly offering approval to any listening choices patrons make (word is he's a fan of "Buffalo Soldier"). Established way back in 1981, the bar is cash only, and features karaoke sessions every night starting at 9 p.m. Guitars line the walls alongside various biker paraphernalia, statues of monkeys (natch), and advertisements for the bars ladies night every Tuesday. It's a popular affair, where girls and gals get $2 you-call-it specials on drinks, including the cheekily named "Monkey Wiz" (a special blend of various juices and banana liqueurs). After a few sips, it won't take long to build up the courage to belt out your favorite classic rock anthem for an adoring crowd.
