The Story

Taking inspiration from the famed mid-century rooftop bars of downtown Detroit—such storied haunts as the Savoyard, Recess and Top of the Flame—the Monarch Club reimagines these classic venues for the modern era. Commanding the penthouse of the meticulously restored Metropolitan Building, the Monarch Club is where refined relaxation meets the mystique of rediscovered grandeur. With iconic skyscrapers encircling, this rooftop hideaway is the perfect place to unwind while city lights twinkle around you. Behind the Monarch’s parapet and by the glow of candlelight, enjoy craft cocktails and enticing culinary offerings as your senses are awakened by views of a downtown metropolis that is at once familiar, yet strikingly new.

The Space

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 Tower room at The Monarch Club bars in downtown Detroit has leather couches and skyline windows.
