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 main-floor cocktail bar has a vintage look, while the basement level serves as a dance club.- Google
"Is a good cocktail lounge and the music has a minimal electronic vibe."
"Upstairs off the street is the main bar, which is fine."

Free photo booth. Literally you can take as many photos as you want and they print them for you. That is something I have never seen at any other bar, ever. Therefore, I give Monarch five stars by default. I will continue to go back just for that feature! Loved it!

Monarch is a funny place, it has a loungy and a clubby feel at the same time. The free photo booth is probably the biggest draw though. Recommend if you're up for anything but can't decide what kind of night you want to have just yet.

If you make it early enough on Fridays, Monarch's 'Amazing Hour' will surprise you with their twist on 'happy hour.' In addition to $4 beers and $5 wells, you can participate in the Photo Booth Competition and win $200 or play the Double or Nothing where the bartender flips a coin and you could potential get free drinks. Monarch does not open until 4AM every Friday and Saturday, so make sure to check the calendar on their website for specific dates. In most cases, cover ranges from $5-$20. Monarch has hosted top international DJs such as Kaskade, M83 and Carl Craig, and has a powerful sound system with an in-house sound technician. Monarch is a great combination for those looking for a nice lounge to chill and otheres looking to dance their butts off.

Really cool cocktail lounge with a tiny dance floor on the main floor and a larger jam packed dance club downstairs that's open until 4 AM. This place gets seriously poppin' after 11 PM on weekends and it maintains a good volume balance that's high energy but also conducive to conversation.

Nice decor and great lights club for EDM music. I came here last night with a couple of girlfriends to dance and I liked the layout with good seating area at the corner. The music was on point if you like EDM music.Parking was easy but be sure to read the parking signs!

I'm a social butterfly. What can I say? As always, I handed myself the club card to go out for some dancing. Well, I deserved it after a stressful few weeks. Where else would I go? Nonetheless, SF. Meandering the streets of SF and feeling obliterated to leave Supperclub, I had the urge to head to Monarch. Odds were 10 to 1. Gambled with my friends and my conscience of what I had left after a few drinks to figure out how the club scene would be. Since its only been open for a few weeks, I didn't want to make the poor choice. Well, why the hell not?! I was taken aback! Monarch was a different vibe. Upstairs was more open. Fresh and lots of room, air to breathe and you can check out the crowd while tunes of rhythmic melodies streamed throughout the top floor. The place so far was inviting and so tasteful! Newly renovated and the color scheme of everything fell into place. I was loving every piece of it. The upstairs was definitely more of a lounge feel. Quiet yet elegant in such a casual setting. The upstairs DJ booth is tucked away in a window-like display before heading down to the rest of the venue below. My friends and I worked our way downstairs to their dancefloor. Downstairs was more packed yet still more room to get yourself to dance. They have the DJ set and stage nearby the downstairs entryway and bar area. Shocking they have stools and chairs to sit down if you care to rest a bit. Spectacular venue. Uptempo, mix crowd and the music is jumpin'!! Grade A in my book. You can't go wrong with the place. Luckily, I found out they had Miguel Migs and Julius Papp spinnin' the evening we went. House music and $5 cover charge?! Not so bad. If you come in earlier before guestlist closes, FREE. Drinks are hit-or-miss depending who pours your drink but I won't complain. They do have one bar upstairs and the other downstairs. However, it's a CASH ONLY bar, but they do have an ATM machine. Unfortunately, the night we went it wasn't working. Love the place anyway, so that doesn't take away a star! Experience was fun! Security kept crowd control under wraps, so there was no problems whatsoever. I was feeling exhilarated when I swayed my hips from left to right and my feet was dancing to the groove with everyone! Lots of eye candy! I may have found a new joint to dibble dabble my tush to and fro the next time I visit. Penciled into one of my go-to spots!

Monarch hasn't shared anything with you.

People are more likely to share with you if you add them to your circles.
