Monarch Rooftop Lounge, New York, NY

Monarch Rooftop Lounge Restaurant Review

: Eighteen floors above Herald Square, Monarch Rooftop & Indoor Lounge boasts spectacular views of the Empire State Building and Midtown Manhattan. Signature cocktails like the Monarch Moon (raspberry moonshine, dry vermouth, aromatic bitters and grapefruit juice) seem to go down smoother when looking across the skyline spiked with glass skyscrapers. The food menu consists of shareable finger foods and flatbreads --- it's primarily meant to complement the beverages --- but what's offered usually does the trick. Shrimp ceviche and handmade empanadas are a bonus to a night out imbibing cocktails. In warm weather, grabbing a seat on the large outdoor deck is imperative.
