Monkee bar is the first bar of its kind in Malaysia, a unique partnership between a local entrepreneur and international charity.
Our collaborator is a successful entrepreneur in Kuching, Sawrawak, whose background lies in tourism and hospitality. With their support we were able to open Monkee Bar, our very first business venture, in December 2013. Now an established name in Kuching’s vibrant nightlife scene, 50% of all profits from the bar go straight to Project Orangutan, helping us continue our work with vulnerable animals at Matang Wildlife Centre.
The beauty of this alliance is that people can make a difference by having a really good time! The slogan ‘Be a hungover hero’ adorns the bar, reminding thirsty conservationists that they are doing their bit for the rainforest.
