    This spot opened a few weeks ago so hurry and check it out before it gets crowded. Beautiful view of the Empire State Building, chill atmosphere, and easy to get in!

    Get here early to avoid paying for tabs or table service. They have small bathrooms so usually there is a 20-30 minute waiting. Drinks are pricey but the music and view is great. Try their Moscow mule

    Ambiance, drinks, view and crowd are the keys to a successful rooftop and Monarch has them all! Definitely an upscale lounge you wanna stop in to grab a great cocktail and some great tapas-esque food

    I think it’s the best view on the Empire State Building in Manhattan. The white wine is a disgrace but my sister enjoyed the mini chicken burger bites. Sweet potatoes fries made me sick.

    On a nice Tuesday it's packed by 5pm. The deck area has far too few umbrellas; you will melt. $16+ cocktails, but they're tasty. Hot crowd & great views, however. Surprisingly easy to get in.

    Lady Lychee is tasty. We got moved to another less comfortable spot right in front of a speaker because we didn't have a reservation, and the drinks were a bit overpriced. Definitely not for locals!

    Boasts great views of the city, get there early or try and make a reservation to get a good table by the outside corner

    The NYC skyline view is AMAZING, the pretentious gays not so much. Best when you go with a group of friends and ignore your surroundings.

    Beautiful rooftop views and lounge, and it's right next to the Empire State! Coat check is $3 and drinks are pricey.

    Beautiful people, breathe-taking view, solid drinks! Indayo's takeover of Monarch was pretty sick! They had the spot popping all night long.

    If you're from Manhattan this spot is NOT for you. Good view but Over priced mediocre food all in tiny portions. Drinks are tiny and pricey even for Manhattan. Crowd is bridge and tunnel and or tacky.

    The Spicy Firetip is a good tequila cocktail with some heat.

    Cool space with great views of ESB, but cocktails are dumb expensive.

    Staff was pretty nice which is hard to find in NYC nightlife. It’s a good pregame spot

    Good view and the ambiance during happy hour time (before 10pm). Afterwards gets crowded and disgusting.

    It's only nice because of it's location and night views. But apart from that, crowded tables, cheesy music and overpriced mediocre drinks.

    I hate the bathroom situation here. There are may be 2 or 3 unisex ones and the line on weekends is about 15 minutes long.

    Skip the food aside from truffle fries. Guac, shrimp and tuna tartare all managed to be bland.

    A new rooftop lounge. There's a great view but I was not impressed with the service. The waitstaff & bartenders ignored me so I didn't hang around for very long.

    Saturday night bridge and tunnel crowd meets two star hotel NYC tourists. No worries, urkel the promoter keeps the crowd in check...even when there's no line.
