The Monarch Club is a place like no other. Passing through the Metropolitan Building’s spectacular Great Hall hints at the elegant charm that awaits. The Monarch Club exudes both old-school intrigue and modern comfort, draped in tones of deep blue, red and gold that create a luxurious backdrop for incomparable city views. Located near attractions like Campus Martius, Corktown and Little Caesars Arena, enjoy a cocktail at one of the most expansive rooftop bars in downtown Detroit. Retreat to an intimate banquette or to the Tower Keep for a more private experience, or relax outdoors around a cozy firepit. Hearkening back to Detroit’s first golden age, the Monarch Club provides a front-row seat to its next.

    The lady you check in with downstairs isn’t very friendly, in fact I felt like we were getting interrogated. We had guests that were running late due to traffic and parking issues. She wanted to know when and how long they were going to be. Upstairs the service was SLOW It took 25 minutes to get our first round of drinks. I can understand if they were busy but they were dead- I counted 8 other customers besides our party when we arrived. Every staff member seemed to have an attitude. Also- their credit card machines were down? I feel like with the amount of texts and emails we received confirming our reservation there should have been some type of communication letting us know so we could prepare for this. This was a disappointing experience. We’ve tried to come here few weeks prior and the lady downstairs was extremely rude about not having a reservation. So we made one this time. And we were still treated poorly.

    Gregory was our waiter, he was friendly, fun and attentive. We booked a party of 12 for drinks before a dinner reservation somewhere else. It was the perfect meeting spot and really easy to make the reservation. They put us in a private room which was awesome. I was the only one in the group that had been there before and the rest of the group loved the atmosphere. We will definitely be back.

    Great setting and great view of Detroit. We managed to get seats at the bar, the host on first floor being very nice and accommodating. Cocktails were great, food was just ok (we ordered the truffle fries -very salty and garlicky- and the fish dip had a funky smell). Service at the bar was not professional, a few barmaids were giggling loudly for almost half an hour in Spanish not caring about interfering with guests privacy around nor about the image of the Monarch.

    Wow! And wow!! What a treasure in downtown Detroit —and only a hop and skip (not even a jump) from the Detroit Opera House! Great for a pre- or post-show treat. Even on its own, it is absolutely worth the trip into the city to visit the Monarch Club for the wonderful views and great ambiance. It was out first time there and we are already plotting our return!!

    Overall it was very cool place to get a drink before a show. Throw shade if you want but I did bring my kids. Yes yes I know it’s a cocktail bar but I wanted to show them a cool experience and it almost wasn’t because they almost turned us away at the door. Their policy says no kids before 9p and I more than honored that coming before 5p. It was a little frustrating. Also, it is insanely pretentious to have your place roped off at the entrance. That aside, mostly good things after. The place is super cool. The lookout and views of the city are awesome. Happened to be there at sunset to boot. Drinks were so so. I had a watered down old fashioned. Wife had a French 75 that she says was good. We passed around several of the small plates, best to worst of what we had; Truffle fries 5/5 Sausage pear flat 4/5 Charcuterie 3/5 Sliders 3/5 Meatballs. 2/5 These are my ratings not my kids.

    We attended The Monarch Club for a 50Th birthday celebration on 1/13/24. I’ve been to this same establishment before and the service, ambiance and food was amazing, so it was only right I recommend this same place to a group of friends who had never been. Immediately after being seated ( a group of 8) The waitress walks over and the first thing out of her mouth was “ Just so you all know, the gratuity will be placed on your bill and it’s One bill ONLY, no split checks” at that time, I felt as though we were targeted because she felt like we couldn’t afford this place. Sadly we all left after have been seated for less than 10 minutes and Will Never return

    This should strictly be a cocktail bar. The portions are way too small and quality of food was not worth the price. I ordered the flatbread pizza with high hopes and it came out rock hard and burnt. I sent it back. The vibe is nice and the igloos are a good touch but don’t come here thinking you’re going to eat good or get full.

    The view is awesome. But otherwise, our experience was pretty blasé. The staff was friendly-ish, but seemed like young folks who don't really want to be working. The cocktails were okay, but quite expensive and not very unique for the price. The view from the roof is beautiful, but not worth the price of "so-so" food, drinks, and service. Glad we tried it, but we won't be going back.

    We reserved a igloo for our anniversary. No where on the website says depending on weather. 1st we get there a few minutes b4 5 and the waitress was rude and said they don't open till 5pm. So we went back down stairs till 5pm. At 5pm we come up and the waitress was rude to the people in front of us. they sit us down at a table inside. We informed them we reserved an igloo she tells us no we didn't. My husband had to pull out his phone to show them. Then we get told we can't use the igloo due to the rain. They were extremely rude about it. So we just left. It was very beautiful there but the staff is rude.

    We've been here multiple times. The view is totally worth it in the summer. But the service is always very slow and the drinks are overpriced for what you get. I don't recommend eating inside. Its surprisingly noisy inside in the winter when busy.

    Planned Christmas Eve gathering at the igloo. Very excited and looking forward to. Received several messages from open table/restaurant to confirm the reservation and I did. On the Eve, went up to the restaurant and as we’re getting out from the elevator, one staff walked by and told us “we’re closed!” In a very rude way. We’re very shocked and disappointed.
