Collins and Pancoast Hall (Blue Monkey Tavern)

About Collins and Pancoast Hall:

Collins and Pancoast Hall was built in the Spring of 1893. The first entertainment held there was by the St. Agnes Guild of the Grace Episcopal Church. It was largely used for fashionable entertainment around the beginning of the 20th century. The Merchantville Lodge of Free Masons No. 119 held its first meetings here on the second Friday of every month. J. Collins & Sons sold coal, lumber, paints, and varnishes on the first floor of the hall, which then became the Collins House Restaurant, and is now home to the Blue Monkey Tavern. The post office was also located here for a short period of time. This historic landmark received a complete renovation in the Summer of 2008. The tavern features a 20 foot square mahogany bar as the room’s centerpiece and a variety of seating types throughout for groups big and small, and larger more private areas to accommodate small gatherings.“The Collins House” has relocated to the second floor and serves as a catering hall. The stately decor and high ceilings make it one of the most grand facilities in Southern New Jersey. The second floor can seat up to 100 people, and offers a full-service bar and catering packages from full-service dining to sit-down dinners.
