Throngs of polished marble pillars and golden angels flank internationally acclaimed musicians, choirs, and comedians. Several more modern venues also dot the campus, including an arena, several more intimate theaters and performance cubbies, and a new cabaret space backed by the Manhattan skyline.
A member of the American Montessori Society, Monarch Montessori School leads a variety of programs designed to educate children in the critical development period between the ages of 6 weeks and 6 years old.

Servers emerge from the kitchen, bearing platters of plump buffalo wings, juicy burgers, and mini sliders.
