Overall: Monarch is an impressive space and an ideal venue for a first date. The cozy seating, soft lighting and relaxed atmosphere will melt away the first date jitters easily. The space is also great for entertaining out of town guests, the view coupled with the decor will leave your visitors speechless.

This Saturday, October 24th, Monarch Rooftop Lounge is hosting a pumpkin carving contest (no fee to enter) from 2:00 to 6:00 pm. The winner of the contest will win tickets to watch The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade from Monarch’s attractive perch above midtown, Macy’s and the parade route.
