"This is a pub that even the most provincial Trappist monk would find cozy. The Old Monk offers draft beers from England, Ireland, Germany and Belgium, and around 70 bottled beers. Once you've stopped ogling the beer menu, don't miss the bar's noteworthy decor. Probably thanks to its close proximity to a bunch of antique stores, it's festooned with lights from a Pennsylvania monastery...The Old Monk is the go-to place for adventurous beer drinkers."

ABOUT US/OUR STORY
The Old Monk is located on historic Henderson Avenue which has a lively nightlife after dark and great antique shopping during the day. In keeping with the neighborhood, the Old Monk is finished out with many antiques and older pub pieces including lights from a monastery in Pennsylvania, a back bar from a chemist's shop in England and turn of the century altar door. Although only openend in 1998, the Monk gives the comfort of a long established pub and has become a favorite with locals whether they be meeting friends for a casual bite.
"Those outside the 'hood may know Feargal McKinney's place as a watering hole, but those within walking distance pop in regularly for crispy fish and chips, divine steamed mussels, and frites to go with their imported beers. Full bar."
