Tucked away between Toronto’s thriving Dundas West and College Street strips, The Monarch Tavern has been serving its loyal patrons the coldest draft and warmest memories since 1927. As one of the oldest licensed establishments in the city, it’s more than just a bar—it’s a landmark!
Upstairs you’ll find the archetypal neighborhood public house, with 15 local craft beers on tap, cask conditioned ale, and the best selection of bourbon whiskey in the city. There’s no place like The Monarch to watch a game on the big screen TV’s, shoot some pool, or play a little pinball while you mingle with the crowd. You can still bring up a veal sandwich or slice of pizza from outside, but you may not want to after you’ve tried the great food Bunz Urban Cuisine is preparing out of our own kitchen—featuring a mix of pub favorites and Asian street food by chef Jubert Gutierrez.
The main floor is the ultimate hangout for anyone who likes to stray a little off the beaten path. At night, the lights get turned down low and the room is transformed into a cool but totally casual cocktail lounge and event space, featuring an eclectic mix of live music, DJ’s, and cabaret-style entertainment. With room for up to 120 people, you couldn’t ask for a better place to bring a group or host your next catered affair.
So, whether you’re a college student, construction worker, artist, or fashion model, everyone feels like royalty at The Monarch.
