  • I contacted Monarch along with several other vendors and still very unsure about what I wanted. I walked in and was very impressed with the style and decor of the bar and the views...OMG the views!!! Then I met Genese, the Director of Events who is just utterly amazing. She full of energy, so sincere and genuinely committed to making your day the very best. Before I walked out I knew it was my place. I returned the next day tasted the food and put my deposit wn.do

  • Let me start off by saying that I am no way a very enthusiastic planner, so the idea of planning a wedding was a thing of terror. We ended up finding Monarch through wedding wire and it was the very first place the husband and I looked at. When we met with Genese Perez, I instantly felt good about it. we kept looking at other possibilities, but the reassurance was never there anywhere else, we knew we would be in good hands here at Monarch. Genese the coordinator/genie/fairy god-mother/GODSEND helped us go through every detail of the wedding. The venue was perfect from the friendly and VERY attentive staff to the look and layout of the place. The food was immaculate, so many delicious choices. I got a lot of compliments from the hors d'oeuvres to the dinner. PLEASE try the salmon with a honey glaze, I hate fish and loved it! Everything came together to be an effortless and beautiful enchanting night. We had both ceremony and reception in the same location. When the room was flipped ... Read more

    Hi Gera! Thank you so much for your review! I remember our first site visit as well so long ago and was so thrilled to see everything come together and that Monarch had the honor of playing a small role in your dream day! The love you two have for each other is unmatched and I can't wait to see where your love story takes you two!

  • My wife and I recently had our wedding and reception here, and I can say that it was wonderful. The venue itself is beautiful, as you can see from many of the pictures, but it's more impressing in-person. We did a mid-afternoon to early-evening event, so we got both daytime and evening experience with it as well as the beautiful views of the Empire State Building. Genese, the event coordinator, was excellent. She's a wonder resource for information as well as day-of support. We ended up taking her recommendations for both our photographer and flowers, both of which we couldn't have asked for better results. And she was proactive and accommodating in things we didn't even think of, or had to adjust last-minute. The food, which we did as plated dinner not buffet, was also very good. This includes dinner, appetizers (meat & cheese platters), and dessert. Our event was off-season, and didn't quite cross into evening time frame (from a cost perspective), so for a small event ...

  • We held our wedding reception at Monarch Rooftop Bar on 28 October 2019 and not only were our guests blown away by the venue and Empire State Building views upon arrival, they and my new wife and I, were equally inspired by the great customer experience, food quality, drinks service and attention to detail displayed by Genese Perez and her fantastic team. We’re British and live in the U.K. We love New York and made the decision to hold our wedding in The Big Apple. We travelled over to view venues in January 2019, seeing many lovely venues but upon meeting Genese and seeing Monarch we knew immediately this was where we wanted to host our guests in the most special day of our lives. Arranging a wedding is difficult, doing so across a 3000 mile and 5 hour time difference is even more so, however with Genese coordinating our wedding we were completely filled with confidence from day one. She was incredibly flexible with their menu and drinks choices, patient whilst we made up our ... Read more

    Wow, thank you for such a lovely review Mark!! From our very first meeting it was so evident the love you & Rachel have for each other and it was such a pleasure to be apart of your big day! We are still dreaming about how beautiful everything was and laughing from your son's toast! We hope to see you all again soon in NYC!!

  • Rarely does it happen that a venue performs at this level. Genese, the events coordinator is detailed, kind, and professional. She made everyone in our family feel heard in the planning process and me feel like a queen on my wedding day. The place looked even more gorgeous than in pictures or ever before. We were able to have the relaxed vibe of a non seated event while keeping it super elegant. The food was excellent and the passed items came around more than we've seen at weddings. Every detail was cared for to make our wedding day the most special, unique, gorgeous experience. Even things we didn't think of, Genese was on top of. We can't say enough good things about Monarch or our experience getting married there.

  • The whole team at Monarch made our day the most amazing day ever. They handled everything for us so we could enjoy our day. The service was spectacular, food was delicious and every one of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. Yes the location is perfect but what makes the Monarch truly special is the entire staff working there! Thank you again for making our day one we will never forget!

    Hi Michael! Thank you for taking the time to write these thoughtful words! It was our pleasure to celebrate you both and everyone is still talking about their favorite moment when you sang for Yeray! We look forward to seeing more of your growing love over the years!

  • It’s not just the sensational rooftop views which blew us away when we chose Monarch Rooftop Bar for our wedding reception. The venue and staff are amazing but Genese is the showstopper. We initially chose this venue primarily for its location and then we discovered Genese!!! As we are from the UK all communication was via email and Genese always responded quickly, fully and more answered all of our questions, was always supportive and her enthusiasm for our day shone through. Genese also helped us with suggestions for vendors which was invaluable as we were 3,500 miles away. She totally understood our concept and design wishes and went above and beyond our expectations to make sure that everything we wanted was achievable thus taking a lot of the pressure away from us. In fact she personally made sure that literally anything we wanted was able to happen and also resolved the few issues which arose. Her suggestions around flowers and decorations saved us a ton of money and w... Read more

  • First off, the review will focus on Genese, the best wedding planning ANGEL on this planet. Forget the beautiful venue, forget the great service staff, forget the countless meetings and calls she had with us to make sure everything went exactly as we wanted. This venue hit everything we wanted within a reasonable price. Genese was with us every step of the way and was not only flexible to serve our needs, but helped us find solutions to things that came up throughout the process. Genese and Monarch will be a special part of our memories forever!! -Ricky & Chika

  • We found this venue on a cursory online search and were blown away by the views on the rooftop but it didn't stop there. Genese and her team helped us with every part of the wedding and she almost became our event planner. We even had some issues with the wedding cake that Genese herself put on her shoulders to resolve. Our wedding would have never been as good as it was without Monarch and its team. Thank you for everything you guys did, you helped make it an UNFORGETTABLE wedding!!

  • I have three words. GENESE. GENESE. GENESE. Ok, so that's one name repeated three times, for emphasis. It takes a true pro to execute a magical ceremony and reception. We knew we were in good hands the moment we met Genese! There was not one request she was not able to fulfill, from how to safeguard a four-tiered wedding cake that could easily melt in the August heat to ideas about floral arrangements, vendors and accommodations. I can't get over the exceptional value of the venue's location, its decor and accessibility, and Genese's expert guidance throughout our entire wedding planning process! The stationery platters we served to our guests were unique and fun, and certainly a great value. The bartenders and cocktail waitresses were warm, welcoming and treated our guests like gold. Jimmy, the in-house DJ, also deserves a mention. We had the perfect wedding playlist due to his attentiveness and understanding of the dance party we wanted for ourselves and our guest... Read more

  • Great venue! We were looking for the NYC experience so what better than a rooftop with Empire State Building views! Our friends and family are still talking about the rooftop experience, the views, and the food! Monarch is very convenient for out-of-town and local guests both, with Penn Station and Times Square within walking distance. The Marriot downstairs makes it easy for the bride to change and arrive at the rooftop via private elevator. We booked the space for the afternoon for both ceremony and reception. At 6pm, the venue opened back up to the public for the evening, though we stayed for an after-party! The Monarch is one big open space but can be sectioned into multiple “rooms” to allow staff to reset one portion from ceremony to reception, with guests relaxing in the other portion with plenty of light, music, and refreshments. All inevitable hiccups were taken care of in the background, Genese coordinated the catering, cake delivery, furniture rentals, space setu... Read more
