New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
Just behind a palm reader and an insurance company on East Sunrise Blvd., you'll find Mona's. Sure it's on the wrong side of the tracks, but Mona's serves up one of the best bar environments you'll find. The first thing you'll see is the Badd Boys sign on the outside, hinting that it caters to the gay community. But hell, that penis sock over the Budweiser tap, it could go anywhere. The TVs above the bar are unobtrusive, a nice respite from all the sports bars flashing so many images at you that it's a wonder you haven't had a seizure. So if you don't feel like watching the Grammy's, honey, you don't have to. The nautical theme running throughout is just as low key, in spite of the vibrant colors. Painted fish swim on the ceiling and across the bar, and stained glass decorates the walls. The clientele is just as low key. No drama or macho scores to settle here. If you want to be obnoxious, the bartender will tell you what's up. No need to dress to impress, but ladies, that dapper guy next to you, he knows more about your Louis Vuitton than you do.
