To our loyal Monsoon fans, neighbors, friends and sushi lovers:

We’ve decided to close the doors to Monsoon after 20 years of serving up some great Asian food and sushi in downtown Flagstaff. It’s been a good run, but we’ve got another concept up our sleeves that we’d like to pursue in this space instead.

Sunday, February 4th will be the last day that the Monsoon kitchen will be open. Starting Monday, February 5th, we will start the transition to our new restaurant, a gastropub called The Market Bar + Kitchen. Our excellent staff will remain the same, ​so you’ll see familiar faces the next time you come in!​

Our late night bar and nightlife events will continue during the transition February 8-10, February 13 (Fat Tuesday) and February 15-17. We will have a soft opening the weekend of February 17-18, with our official grand opening planned for later this year. Subscribe to our email list to be the first to know about the grand opening event and visit our website for the most up-to-date info on opening/closing dates. Thank you for your patience during our transition.
