Addison's respective backgrounds span 15 years of Manhattan nightlife with such recognizable and memorable venues such as Ava Rooftop Lounge at Dream Hotel, Tonic Times Square, Inc Lounge at Time Hotel and The Bar at Dream Hotel.
The nightlife duo will introduce Monarch along with a cocktail and light fare menu fit for the sizzling summer months in New York City. Boasting an impressively expansive interior and exterior space, Monarch can comfortably accommodate more than 300 guests. The innovative cocktail menu will be created developed by leading mixologists, Liquid Lab NYC.
The dessert menu will consist of hand crafted delectables by Bindi chocolates and coffee.
The Scandinavian-chic décor, designed by Natalia Todorova of Gwathmey, Seigal, Kaufman Architects, features an indoor lounge that radiates glamor and allures with seductive appeal, seamlessly connecting to the exterior oasis with sliding floor to ceiling glass doors. Vintage bricks, white painted hand washed wood panels on the walls, teak and grey custom Terrazzo tiles, and raw iron columns evoke a feeling of a Scandinavian summer home with accents of Manhattan elegance. Black pendants designed by Tom Dixon cast gold shadows on the natural tree form bar counter top and glass lighting fixtures project down to reflect on the modern wood walls. The modern, yet unimposing deep seated upholstered sofas invite guests to relax and bask in the views of Midtown Manhattan, with floor to ceiling silk curtains that frame the picturesque view of the iconic Empire State Building.
“We are proud to announce the opening of Monarch” says Ric Addison & Stephen Daly, co-owners of Monarch. “Monarch will provide guests with first rate service and remain on the pulse of New York’s top nightlife trends. Our primary goal is to provide superb Hospitality in New York’s most stunning atmospheres.”
