Stopped in on a busy Saturday night. Place has an old Europe feel to it. Long and narrow with tables upfront and in the far back. The bar sits in the middle with waiters and waitressís running to and from. Everyone I spoke to enjoyed their food. (we didnít eat). We stopped in simply for a beer. The beer selection is top notch, both draft and bottle. I wish I could stop in here on a week night so I could really sit and enjoy everything this place has to offer. Itís small so be prepared to wait and donít be with someone who isnít a beer nerd. You are going to want sometime here.

Small cramped bar in downtown philly. Interior is dark but cozy. Stopped for dinner on a Thursday evening. Had to wait about 30 mins for a table but service at the bar was good. The food was really good, had wings, mussels and steak and everything was good. They had Blind Pig and Pliny on tap which was cool. The bottle menu is nice and decently priced as well. Would definitely stop here again sometime.

Monkís is a small place with two bars, though it didnít feel crowded on a Friday night. Dimly lit, it had a decent feel to it.
The service was average, I expected a bit better quality, but then again this is Philly and most bartenders can be a bit pretentious. One bartender was helpful, the other wasnít at all.
The selection is solid, they even had two hard-to-find beers, including a very rare beer when I was there.
The beers were decently priced, a tad expensive maybe, but nothing I wasnít expecting.
I was a bit underwhelmed after all the good I had heard, itís a tad cramped there and the service was spotty between the 3 bartenders I dealt with. I would still come by again though.

2 bar room areas, the front bar is more "for the public" where most people eat and drink. It seems more crowded and a touch less intimate. The back bar tends to be slightly less crowded and more personal. They have an amazing selection of lambic and vintage bottles, typically a top notch draft list and will have some RR stuff on tap.

Visited on June 6, 2012. Possibly the coolest beer bar Iíve been to. Dark and wood. Tons of rare beers. No flights but all is forgiven!

Lunch with wife on a weekday. Not too busy. Have been here before when you canít get in the door. Good tap selection, mosly belgians, a few ipas. World class bottle list including vitnages of cantillion, russian river, port, lost abbey, germans, english isles, and of course belgium. Both got an order of mussels. Both were tasty. No problems with service. A bit pricey... You are in center city.

Stopped there on a weeknight a while back and had a really lovely meal the best cooked mussels Iíve had. I donít know many around the country that are put everything together so well. Such an authentic inviting atmosphere for a beer nerd (and his mom!) on a more quite week night for dinner. Spectacular list. I want to go back!
