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.

  • TWM 4th Birthday Showcase: RATS + Ebi Soda + Pillbox

    Celebrate Three Wise Monkeys 4th Birthday with a showcase of bands we, and some our external promoters partners, recommend as ones to watch.
    A scruffy blast of direct and anthemic indie thats as infectious as it is heartfelt, the sound of RATS has already seen them burst out of their native hometown Liverpool, with their sizeable ambition lining up the rest of the world in their sights.
    These guys blew us away when they played Three Wise Monkeys Colchester back in the summer, so so good. Don’t miss them this time around!
    When we reach the end of 2018, Pillbox will have played our venue more than any other band this year. This is because we love them, our friends at Essex Rocks love them, and even more importantly our crowds love them!
    Doors 8pm on the top floor of Three Wise Monkeys Colchester. Tickets £5
