Why locals love it

It's NOT straight home from work but to a place where their hearts' feel strongly about. To avoid the rush hour jam of the train ride home after work, Monk's is situated as the perfect commute bar. It's almost like the airport bar would be before the boarding call. It is filled with energy and a great selection of local and imported beers.

Why you should visit it

They have filling food. Cold Beer. And its the best bar closest to the Thompson Center where most train lines are. It is packed after work hours everyday but it doesn't give you that annoying "too many people feel." Instead It is bustling with the happy energy of loop professionals and the bar gives free peanuts that you can toss on the floor.

Special tip

Mingle! Have them refill your peanuts. Find a local and try this bar with them. It's a better experience with someone who knows the loop culture well.
