Monarch Rooftop: A scenic oasis in the city’s center

I had the recent opportunity to check out Monarch Rooftop in Midtown Manhattan, and I must say it’s the perfect place to go to for happy hour and to catch the sunset against the city skyline! With views of Midtown, the Empire State building, Downtown Manhattan, and the Hudson River, the swanky hotspot has an impressive location. It’s a spacious indoor and outdoor venue that’s filled with comfy banquettes, lots of plush chairs, and two bars. I really liked the appetizers and small plates menu, and recommend the Watermelon Bites, the Grilled Chicken Skewers, the Yucca Frites, and the Monarch Flatbread. The cocktail menu was quite expansive, and my favorites included the Rose Sangria, the Violet Crush, the Pimm’s Royale and the Rose 75. Both menus change seasonally to match the weather perfectly. Everything tasted fresh, flavorful, and delicious. If you haven’t already, be sure to stop by for drinks and appetizers at this hotspot!
