Monkey Town was conceived and founded in May 2003 by Montgomery
Knott. He was assisted by Meghan Czerwinski, Josh
Cross, and Coleman
And a big shout to the two architects who gave us the bones
and the DNA (and the blueprints) to build our new location --
Hansen and Jake
Our first location was at 222 Leonard St. in Williamsburg,
Brooklyn. From May 2003 until Winter 2004, we operated as a
seasonal dining and video performance space.
Our present location at 58 N 3rd St adds a
Front Dining Room and Bar, while our back dining room
maintains our original configuration:
- 4 screens
- communal seating
- 6.1 surround sound
- intimate capacity: 50
We have created a permanent space that privileges video art,
short films, feature-length films and documentaries, outside
traditional galleries, movie theaters, museums, or clubs. We
also host live music, dance and other original performance.
As always, forever, we continue
with our 'Bathroom Sound Series'.
We serve experimental cuisine and classic dishes from a country
that doesn't exist. Every cuisine and every ingredient
are in play. The laboratory is open.
We accept AMEX, Visa, and Master Card.
Our regular hours are:
7 Days a Week | 6pm - 1am (til 4am Friday
