About Us

Three Wise Monkeys is a modern style Public House split over 4 floors in the heart of Colchester, Essex.

The ground floor is an large Tap House serving a huge range of quality beers from both keg and cask. We also have a great selection of spirits, unique cocktails, wines and coffee.

The first floor houses a spacious public bar and kitchen. Food will be served throughout the day with a passionate focus on slow-cooked, smoked American-style barbecue food and gourmet burgers. High quality local produce is at the heart of everything we do.

The second floor is a fantastic live music and club night/dancing venue that doubles as a large private function room.

Opened in 2016, our new basement gin bar has a boiler room/speakeasy vibe that is open every Friday and Saturday from 7pm until close.

  • Coilguns/Telepathy/Jotnarr LIVE

    - 20:00 -

    Coilguns (Switzerland)
    Dark, abrasive blackened hardcore. One of the finest live acts to emerge from the DIY underground in years. This strange beast live somewhere between Converge, Unsane, black metal and the Dillinger Escape plans. Ex and current members of The Ocean, Closet Disco Queen, Kunz and about 20 million more bands.

    Instrumental (ish) atmospheric big riff metal from Colchester. The only hometown of 2017 and the first since the release of Tempest, Roadburn Festival and too many tour miles to count.

    Sons of Northern Sexiness

    Of course we couldn’t put a show on without some form of ridiculous disco afterwards. Toto, Cyndi Lauper and heavy metal classics ’til close.

    £5, on the door only!
