Elevated American fare and Midwestern hospitality collide at The Monarch, a lauded restaurant-bar located in the trendy Bucktown / Wicker Park neighborhood. While its name rightfully conjures up its sophisticated setting, The Monarch’s unpretentious dining experience celebrates American… achievements with a royal twist. The casual, clever fare and hand-crafted cocktail menu pay tribute to the famous—and infamous—titans of American history.
Constructed of exposed brick walls, industrial oak floors, and 25-foot ceilings, The Monarch also features subtle heraldic symbols hidden in the walls, softened by the light of silver candelabras. The bar beckons upon entering, while an idyllic, newly renovated outdoor patio sits just beyond the dining space. Combined, these elements unite patrons of all ranks.
Ascend the throne for a regally relaxing dinner, and stick around for late-night revelry, as The Monarch transforms into a royally refined party well into the evening.Continued
