Monk's Pub...

derived it's name from a monastery where the owner resided one summer as a young boy. So impressed with his stay, he thought to himself if I ever own a public house, I'm going to call it Monk's! May of 1978, his boyhood dream became a reality when he acquired a public house in Chicago called Monk's Pub.

“No matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of beers."

~A Wise Philosophy Professor

“Great for lunch if you are in the loop. Outstanding beer selection.”
“One of the best burger places in the Loop”
“No ranch. Boo. But you can throw the peanut shells on the ground.”

"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

~Jack Handy

"In dog beers I’ve only had one.”
