Located in a freestanding warehouse on the edge of SOMA, Monarch is the raining scene post-techno house music offering a multi-use venue with main floor bar opening from happy-hour to last call daily in addition to the basement-level dance club that lures some of the townâ€™s best home grown musical jockeys. Visitors arrive to an entry-level bar decorated in a Victorian meets Steampunk eclecticism translated through heavy copper detailing, magnify glass bric-a-brac and art nouveau mural with looking glass frames that reveal a hidden lounge. Downstairs, the live music club is packed with a wall of sound befitting the rising DJ talent that take the helm for Thursday to Saturday night events for electro-dance connoisseurs.
A daily happy hour attracts more of a working class SOMA scene that transitions into the night with more of an electo-club minded music scene.
Seasonal music events like summer Poolside and winter Saturday nightclub offers one of the best nights of the week in terms of crowd and sound.
