Very cool place, with a ton of different belgians on tap. Also, have a number of quality craft brews from around the country with a decent bottle list, as well. They offer a lot of the "regular" belgians on tap and have 3 different sampler trays. The food was great and came out very quickly. I can echo what other people have said that prices can tend to be on the high-side, but I am willing to pay the extra $ for such a great atmosphere. Also, you can get burgers/sandwiches and frites for ~$11. Great place and one of my favorite spots in Denver.

(Visited 10/2009): Cheeky Monk is located on Colfax Ave on the east side of downtown Denver. Street parking is available nearby. The interior is dark with brick and wood, plus some large pieces of art. The bar is located immediately inside and wraps around 3 sides. There is a chalkboard above the bar showing what beers are available. The rest of the café is devoted to table seating. Cheeky Monk has around 20 different Belgian or Belgian-style beers available on draught. Brewers include Lost Abbey, St. Bernardus, Gouden Carolus, Duvel, Kasteel and others. Just about all the beers have the corresponding glassware as well. In addition there are several Belgians available in bottles from Chimay, Corsendonk, Lindeman’s, New Belgium and several others. Service was good on a busy weekday evening. The bartender was very attentive and chatted with us the entire time about beer. I had a Chicken Cordon Bleu sandwich for dinner and it was very good, although I was so full from the Denver pub crawl that I wasn’t able to eat very much of it. Overall I really liked this place and would definitely visit again and would recommend it to any beer lover visiting Denver.

The best Belgium beers are great out of the bottle, but this place lets you experience them from the tap, and in the appropriate glassware for each beer. The food is good. The ambiance is nice enough that my girlfriend who hates beer likes to hang out there. If you love Belgium beer, you have to check this place out when you’re in denver.

Great place to find some hard to find Belgian beers. Nice atmosphere inside. Outside is colfax so just be mindful of your surroundings. Easy to drop 50 bucks on 3 beers here and walk out half blind. A great place but be careful with how much you imbibe.

Nice looking place with very friendly service and ever-expanding selection of taps and bottles. Best craft beer import selection in town. I heard they will be brewing their own beers soon, which could be really cool, will keep an eye on the Cheeky Monk!

Great atmosphere buzzing with people, and actually feels like it could be a place in Brussels. The service was excellent when we were there, in spite of the craziness they were smiling and on the ball. Beer list in general is ok, it might have been bumped up for the GABF crowd when we were there because it included some special gems on tap.

I was there last night, Oct. 7, a month after opening. A fine selection of taps: St. Bernardus Abt 12, Duchesse de Bourgogne, De Konnick, Kwak and others (about 12 or more). There’s also 20 or so bottles including des Rocs Grand Cru, Rochefort 8, and La Folie for $18, a good price. I’d like to see more bottles and beer decor, but that’s no big deal. It’s a pretty big place and they can handle a big group. The food was delicious...I had the Moules in Chipotle sauce and stuffed mushrooms. Great frites with various sauce options. Would love to get back for the steak salad and other Belgian dishes. All in all a fine place to dine and drink Belgian beers.

Stopped here when I was on vacation. Loved it so much it is now a regular stop when I go out there. Food is good and the staff are friendly. The beer is amazing. They always have the proper glasses and they have some of the best Belgian beers around.
