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 town’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.

Last Word

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.
