“Be Original, Stay Happy”

Established in Guangzhou back in 2009, we are a cool, yet welcoming and inclusive London-style cocktail bar and restaurant serving an extensive range of drinks and a full food menu.

Each of our five downtown locations has its own “look and feel” – while at the same time maintaining a common Happy Monk identity. Our designs are all original and cool, yet unpretentious, utilizing simple and classic materials including copper, wood paneling, stone, concrete and leather.  Four of our locations have large open outdoor areas, which prove particularly popular in Guangzhou.

We strive to create a happy, authentic and lively environment for our many customers, who hail from all walks of life in China and around the world.
