Monk's Pub

For more than 30 years, this cavernous Loop tavern has cornered the market on medieval dives. Beyond the heavy doors that seem to hide a monastery, you’ll find an after-work crowd of mostly suits and occasional skirts downing beer and adding to the piles of peanut shells littering the floor.
