The Bar

Welcome to Monarch, the reigning throne of San Francisco’s nightlife dynasty. This thriving cultural capsule located on the edge of SOMA intertwines the shared visions of four deeply-rooted industry veterans. Monarch gracefully dominates the corner of 6th and Mission as a rare multifunctional venue that is equally suited to an evening of sophisticated lounging and craft cocktailing, as to a night of music, movement and debauchery.

The upstairs Monarch Bar is a distinctive lounge, which dramatically mingles elements of Victorian, Steampunk and Art Nouveau design. From the vintage redwood bar, patrons indulge in generous pours that lack pretentiousness. Dynamic inventions from award-winning cocktail curator, Fred Acebo, take the late mixology trend in a relaxed, un-fussy direction while effortlessly incorporating quality and technique.

Ambiance leaps to new heights as trained performers execute balanced perfection, suspended from the ceiling above the bar’s delicate glass bottles. Monarch’s aerial performances are sure to induce wide-eyed delight on its patrons, unrivaled by establishments of its kind.

To top off the experience, Monarch invites its guests to capture their certain savoir faire in its custom photo booth, which offers complimentary prints that replay their evening and beckon them back.
