I have a 22 year love affair with the Khyber Pass. I drank my first Yuengling Porter and Sierra Nevada while sitting at its beautifully worn bar. I’ve seen more bands play there than I can remember. The Khyber was my spot to bring a date drink at the bar or see a show. The stage, sweat, smoke and live bands are long gone. The old jukebox and eclectic beer selectiion remain. The current Khyber Pass Pub is a beer bar that has a dining room. Staff is attentive, taps are plenty and you can still get a bottle of PBR like the old days. In my personal beer and music history the Mighty Khyber while always rank high with me.

Philadelphia seems to have an abundance of small funky bars. Khyber Pass is perhaps the darkest bar I’ve ever been in. Went for lunch on a Saturday. OK beer selection. Good food menu (gumbo). Excellent service.

Really enjoyed Khyber Pass! Staff was very friendly and helpful and the beer selection was really good. Will definitely come back when in town next time.

Visited twice late April/early Mat 2016. Dark place with a long bar and some seating in the back room. Fast friendly service. Nice tap list. Very close to one brewery and two other beer focused bars, so easy walk in between. I liked the place and would go back if in Philly again. Kind of metal music playing, helps with me feeling welcome.

The service leaves a bit much to be desired but a really strong draft list makes up for it. Nice variety between local and national stuff that’s hard to get with a generous pour and price. I’d come back but not out of my way to come by.

Awesome bar in the Old City. Fortunately, I was staying only a few blocks away so this became my ’local’ for the week. Great tap selection with not only a diverse range of beers, but also fast turnaround of the tap lines. The food is Southern style and really quite tasty. Happy hour delivers good deals on drink and food too - $2 off all drafts. The staff are great - super friendly and happy to have a chat. Great bar.

When I visited: Late September 2014. What I had: Buxton Black Rocks, Sly Fox Pikeland Pilsner, and Freigeist Abraxxxas on tap, Hickory Smoked Pulled Pork plate with collard greens and coleslaw for me, North Carolina-style BBQ Pulled Porked sandwich and a few glasses of 2010 Creisen Sauvignon Blanc for my fiancé. What I liked: Dimly lit ambience at the bar, plenty of seats available, good crowd that minds their own, excellent draft list with some harder to find imports, killer barbecue, bartender was happy to provide samples, had a great chat with one of the patrons, awesome experience all around. What I disliked: Service was a little cold at first but improved substantially as the night went on. Would I go back? Definitely. Khyber was one of the better bars that we visited during our time in Philly. Overall Rating: 92

Made a late night/early morning visit. Small place, but excellent selection. Two English cask ales plus ~20 more on tap with some tougher to find brews. Outstanding food. Good service.

Nice cozy little spot with a very solid tap list (think I came the day after their anniversary) Service is attentive and friendly. Menu is pub fare with a flare but I didn’t eat. Prices are fair. Dig it and it’s a regular stop in the area.

Another great hole-in-the-wall style Philly craft beer pub. Lots of surprises - I wandered into the place with a friend without realizing it was a beer destination while on a pub crawl. Some good stuff from good breweries not readily available in most situations. Service is good, and a friendly Philly crowd.
