I've lived in Camden for over a year now and I've only got to discover the Monarch about a couple of months ago. It was a special evening: my boyfriend who had been away in Italy for three months was finally back on UK land and we were determined to celebrate. It felt like a first date, and the best kind! The music was cheesy as I like, going from Nickleback to Grease and the Spice Girls. There are arcade games and pool tables. Since then, I also attended a brazilian gig with brazilian BBQ in the back garden: delicious! I do recommend this place. The final plus: it stays open late and is generally free admission.

The pub is very nice but we went there for a Brasilian night and it was a bit disappointing. There was just a barbecue, they could not do cocktails anymore, the band was okay but nothing surprising.... I was a bit disappointed and left before the end, and still a bit hungry. Although, it looks like they have other types of evenings that might be nicer, so I will try again!
Last night at The Monarch in Camden was a really fun night with Brazilian music from Cantar Vocal Ensemble. The sound of Brazilian swing music kept me entertained all evening, there was a really fun, friendly atmosphere in the pub and to top it off a tasty BBQ going on out back which was cooked to perfection and very reasonably priced.
Awesome pub where bands almost perform in the window. Has a garden out the back, and rather a cheeky little upstairs area with seating. Thats my spot when a hot band is playing downstairs.
