TUCSON, Ariz. — Downtown bar/restaurant The Funky Monk is reopening.

Located at 350 E. Congress Street, the 4,000 square foot facility will offer a new menu, including Sunday brunch, as well as outdoor dining.

The Funk Monk closed on St Patrick’s Day, then reopened for a few weeks in June, and again the first week of September. All staff members were furloughed, but all of their previous employees received job offers once it reopened.

"We are very happy to have The Funky Monk’s doors back open and could not be more pleased to be back serving our fans in Tucson once again,” said S. Barrett Rinzler, CEO & Founder, Square One Concepts, in a statement. “The Funky Monk remains that popular downtown stop that delivers refreshing cocktails, and even savory dishes in a stylish-yet-relaxed setting.”

Hours will be 4 p.m. to midnight Wednesday-Saturday. For mofe information, visit the Funky Monk website.
