First Look: Monarch Rooftop Lounge, Opening Next Week

Rooftop bar alert! Ric Addison and Stephen Daly, nightlife impresarios behind Ava Rooftop at Midtown’s Dream Hotel, are opening their latest penthouse haunt next week (we hear Tuesday or Wednesday). Dubbed Monarch, the 5,000-square foot venue can fit 300 revelers, a welcome feat in a neighborhood that’s full of less-than-stellar imbibing options. Cocktails are by Liquid Lab NYC and you’ll be able to scope out stellar views of the Empire State Building from the cushioned patio seating outside. The venue is located at 71 West 35th Street.

Monarch Rooftop Lounge Is this the cheapest happy hour in New York City? It’s not. But, sometimes, you’re looking to splurge a bit. That’s where the Monarch Rooftop Lounge comes in. Obviously, the views are amazing, but the venue also strikes $3 off its $16 signature cocktails during the 4 to 7 p.m. happy hour and offers Buzz Bars, $8 alcohol-infused ice cream for adults.
