Cheeky Monkey on Landsowne feels less like a brewery and more like a Dave & Busters that happens to brew its own beer. In theory, we appreciate big giant places filled with ping pong tables, billiards, and shuffleboard. But we’d prefer they not come with mediocre beer, standard bar food, drunk bros who are definitely going to get kicked out of the Sox game by the 5th inning, and a technicolor decor that makes us wonder if we’re high on whatever the director was using when they made the original Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
