On Oct 2, 2010, I had a surprise birthday party for my wife. The location on the fringe of Little Italy was perfect. Everyone commented about the good food and cool place for a party. At the end of the day, my wife and all our friends had a great time and memorable evening.

It's a great venue and I would highly recommend the Monarch for a party.

The Monarch is back! Same great value and comfort but now with gourmet grilled cheese, poutine and prime rib burger. Check it out!

how is the live music at this venue? i'm looking for a pub/bar that has the cover band thing going on -- classics like matchbox 20, third eye blind, nirvana etc that my friends can sing a lot to

There are a few different bands playing. Some blues, some latin jazz. Lots of fun.

Looks like a really cool place you got there. I hope it does well. I personally wish my bar was like that, although, its still really great cuz the mngr got this new service so he actually shows the good games now.

Its called SBMX. and if you run a bar you should consider getting it. And really… it makes it easier to focus on what you should be focusing on without having to shuffle thru TV guide.

The Monarch Tavern is now hosting Toronto's finest food truck chefs! On Monday October 15th the Gourmet B*tches take over the kitchen with their gluten free fare.

Glad to read that this place is finally getting the recognition it deserves from blogto.

The boys from the Hogtown Smoke food truck are now operating out of The Monarch's kitchen permanently. For my money, theirs is the best BBQ Toronto's got going.

One of the best last call joints around. I've been at all hours but the vibe always seems right after midnight. Love the pool table too.

You guys got 4am again for TIFF? For the entire fest? Cool, see you after work.

I grew up 3 doors down from The Monarch at #6. My grandpa could be found there every night having his 2 glasses of beer between 4 and 6 after which he would promptly show up at home for dinner. I have to say I was only ever in there once. Planning to go there at some point in the future. If nothing else, the place has staying power.
