According to the announcement, the Iron Monkey’s last day of operation will be on December 31, 2023. Leading up to that date, they will continue to welcome guests from Tuesday to Sunday, designating Mondays as their weekly day of closure.

The social media post has garnered substantial engagement, amassing over 300 likes and numerous comments from well-wishers.
