Are you still officing out of Starbucks? You should fold up your portfolio and move it over to Monarch.
Monarch is a little bar off the corner of Rio Grande and Mesa, where Dedo used to be (also the Briar Patch, and Wee Tam, if you want to get historic).
Monarch is decorated like someone’s hippie grandmother’s house, with comfortable living room furniture, plus a dance floor. It’s like I imagine the Russian Tearoom looks. Comfortable, with flattering light.
Monarch offers a wide selection of craft beers on tap, and they’re only three and a half bucks till nine. Monarch also has a fancy coffee machine, so if it’s too early for a beer (ha!), you can get an espresso.
Monarch has wifi, and comfortable tunes, so you don’t have to wear your Beats, unless you’re pretentious. Monarch, by the way, isn’t pretentious.
Monarch is open six days a week at eleven. On Sundays I guess they open at twelve, as per the law. It’s only a block from Saint Patrick’s, so even if you don’t make it to mass, you’re close. I’m sure the bartender would love to hear your confession.
