"Went down last night and its closed. All outdoor lights look like they have been ripped off the trees.

"Such a shame if its closed down after a few months of being open."

However, a spokesperson for the Three Monkeys told the Star that the bar was undergoing a refurbishment.

The bar said that they had decided to renovate to prepare for the return of the students and would be hoping to open again between late September and early October.

Three Monkeys opened up on the site of the former Botanical pub which closed down a number of years ago.

The 'chilled-out- bar was open seven days a week from 4pm; serving homemade tapas food with plans to launch a lunch menu in the coming months.
