The Monarch Cocktail Bar is a social setting for the cocktail curious and drinks connoisseur, the vision come to life of a team of architects and bartenders who collaborated on every detail. Renowned Architect/Owner David Manica of Manica Architecture (Kansas City, London, Shanghai) worked with the bar professionals from day one to design a lively setting to experience Kansas City’s most refined cocktails, service and small plates menu.

Along the way they re-imagined the bar as we traditionally know it, electing for new approaches such as an open Main Bar, approachable from all sides with no back bar to obstruct the perfect sight lines of the space, a stylish all-seasons Patio and a private “Parlour Room,” all with original cocktails to match.

As the national lifestyle agency for The Monarch we have been on board to manage PR and influencer marketing since the 2017 opening to reach hospitality, design, and drinks editors. Feature stories have attracted interest as wide-reaching as the flight of the monarch butterfly, including: Architectural Digest, Daily Beast, Forbes, GQ, Hemispheres/United Airlines, Kansas City Star, VinePair and ZAGAT.
