Philadelphia’s Hotel Monaco, with its urban setting and view of the historic Liberty Bell, recently debuted a snazzy new look. The 268-room boutique escape is nestled inside the Lafayette Building and now features a bi-level restaurant called Red Owl Tavern. The new restaurant will serve rustic, modern American fare from the region such as curry-coconut mussels, St. Louis baby back pork ribs, and crispy blacked striped bass. In addition, the renovations also include the Stratus Rooftop Lounge, a chic, cosmopolitan outdoor space with a view. Guests can enjoy sky-high, city vistas while sipping a cocktail or indulging in a few of Stratus’ small plates, like baked goat cheese and apple cider donuts.
