Outdoor Dining

When the sun is shining and the weather is heating up, there is nothing better to do than to relax & unwind with your family or friends. Here at Monkey Lounge we have gone through a full revamp to create an incredible outdoor dining area. Alfresco dining at its best!  When the weather gets cold we even have some sides we can add to bring the outside inside.
