The Monarch Bar's Reopening Plan

The Monarch Bar has made the difficult decision to not re-open to the public under the revisions to the 10/10/10 guidelines which go into effect ‪on May 15. We are certainly excited about the opportunity to reopen and serve you again, but our decision not to open is primarily based on these two reasons: 1) the safety of our guests is of the utmost priority, and we believe that continued closure is the safest approach in these earliest stages of transition; and 2) opening the bar to such a significantly limited capacity with guidelines which require removal of all bar seating and enforcing 10-feet distance between our few tables would not offer our guests the memorable experience that is synonymous with The Monarch.

We are anxiously awaiting more information from Mayor Lucas, and are currently anticipating reopening to the public when a 50% capacity is allowed.  In the meantime, we encourage you to contact us to book small private parties that fit within KCMO’s then-current guidelines. Please email with inquiries.

We will continue to offer our newly introduced "To Go" cocktail program with 34 of our delicious cocktails in servings for 1, for 2 and for 5. Orders for cocktails and for Monarch-branded retail items can be placed at the link in our bio for pick up at The Monarch Bar, Monday through Saturday between 12-7 p.m.

As always, we are grateful for your support, and appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate this unprecedented time. We look forward to the day we can re-open and serve you our award-winning cocktails again at the one and only Monarch Bar. Until then, stay strong and stay safe. Cheers!
