Editor's note: Publicist for Monkey's Tail Brittany Meisner provided an update Sept. 2 that the bar will not open in September as previously mentioned but anticipates opening this fall.
Owners Jesus Gonzales, Elaine Collum and Steven Ripley will open Monkey’s Tail Conroe this fall at 2017 N. Frazier St., Ste. A2, Conroe. The business will offer the same things as the Houston location, according to Ripley. The Houston location offers “a funky and modern bar” with beer, cocktails and a food menu, including items such as the Chango Burger, pizza and tacos, according to the business’s website. www.instagram.com/monkeystailconroe
