This 5,000-square-foot penthouse lounge evokes a Scandinavian lodge, with wood-paneled walls, floral armchairs and black pendant lamps. On warm nights, slip through the sliding glass doors to an outdoor patio, where you can sip cocktails like the Monarch (gin, grapefruit juice and lavender bitters) and the Butterfly Effect (tequila, lemon juice and jalapeño honey) with a view of the Empire State Building.

This rooftop bar was seriously perfect. No words can explain how beautiful the view was and the decor is also just as beautiful. I had heard from other friends that promoters can really help you get awesome deals in NYC so I finally contacted one, Indi Romero from Joonbug, and it was the best move I made. We got an awesome table with the most beautiful view of the empire state building. I would highly recommend that you contact Indi Romero on facebook or email him at if you want an awesome night at Monarch!

Monarch Lounge is a cool space with an up close and personal view of the Empire State Building. I was here for an after work event and it was super packed. They seemed understaffed and it took forever to get a drink. After a long wait I got a mint julep that tasted like alcohol-less sugar water. I'd maybe try again if I were already in the area, it might have just been an off night for them.

I went to Monarch last weekend and I had a great time! They had good music and a very nice crowd :) The line was a bit long, but luckily I booked the party through Indi at Joonbug. He cut the line for me and my friends and got us into the club right away :) thanks to him I didnt spend any money (he got us tons of free drinks!!). He works at the best venues every weekend, and u can find him on FB: Indi Romero

Awesome place to chill with your friends and relax while enjoying a nice cocktail.  I got in touch as well with Indi Romero from Joonbug, who will make your night so much easier. You don’t want to count all week on going to a place and then get rejected at the door... and he makes sure this doesn’t happen.
