From The Monkey Bar:

This is going around the net. Another call for YOUR help from The Monkey Bar:

"We are in the process of going through a rezoning faze with the city. All appeared well, and we were given a letter stating that the city was recommending we receive out rezoning (special use permit).

Well there seems to be 1 or 2 people in the neighborhood who wish that Monkey Bar was not there.

So we need your help! If you could please write a letter stating your name, and address if you live near the bar, and if not, please write a letter anyway showing your support. The letter should encompass why you love the monkey bar, and what it means to you.

We are unfairly accused of being a "Dive Bar" with less than desirable clientel. Now I think our clientel is great, our bar is great, and you wont find a better patio in Dallas. We are also probably one of the safest bars in Dallas. The actual building that the Monkey is in, has been a bar / lounge for well over 10 years, and was there WAY before the residential building started to occur.

So please help us out, and write us a letter. You can email the letter to or bring it by the bar anytime this week after 5:30pm (408 Exposition, Dallas Tx. 75226). Our next meeting with the city council is on Thursday, and with enough support we will be able to keep our bar open.

I will keep you posted on when the meeting on Thursday is, so maybe all of you can come down there with us, and show unity."

FYI: The hearing starts @ 1:30pm. Sometimes it goes quick, sometimes it's slow as hell, but there is no telling. Be prepared to be there 'til 5pm.

Also, DEEP is meeting @ The Monkey Bar tomorrow night (Nov. 6) @ 9pm. These issues and more are up for discussion. (Oh, we have fun too!)
