Monarch Rooftop Bar Rooftop Bar in New York

Empire State Building, Midtown Manhattan
Bar bites
Year round


5,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor penthouse lounge.

Monarch Rooftop Bar is located on the 18th floor, and it is the building's penthouse. From the terrace you get a stunning view over midtown Manhattan, and most of all, fantastic vistas of the Empire State Building.

Up here you find a rooftop bar and an indoor lounge, both very modern and stylish with a Scandinavian-chic feel. Light and airy with lots of comfy lounge sofas and bar stools. One of the most vibrant rooftop bars in New York.

The bar serves bar bites and offers the regular selection of beers and wines along with some very well made specialty cocktails. Like the jalapeño-hot 'Sleeping with the Devil', made of Espolón Silver Tequila, Triple Sec, Mango, Jalapeño, Cilantro, Pineapple Juice and Fresh Lime.

The Monarch Rooftop terrace is not the biggest in the city, but certainly not small either, and it can accommodate about 300 people at the same time. It also has heaters for the chilly nights.

On a weekday afternoon you can probably just pop by and enjoy a cocktail, the view and some moderate vibrant atmosphere. But for nights and weekends, reservations are highly recommended. You will not be alone, but in return you will get a great, energetic atmosphere.

The rooftop is also available for any kind of private and corprate events, where you can reserve sections of the space depending on your needs.
