We have been to Khyber Pass 3 times now. Great atmosphere, lighting, friendly and attentive service, and great tap list. We stopped in on a tour of the city, and really enjoyed ourselves. On our first visit we did not have a meal here, we liked it enough to return on a future visit. The place felt very cozy and welcoming. We did order the duck fat popcorn, and the bacon fat popcorn to go with our beers, and it was sooo good. The tap list here was very good as well.
On our next visit we sat in the "dining room" area and ate dinner. The experience here was not as good. Our waitress didn't know the tap list, and told me the beer I wanted was not on. My husband got up and got me one from the bar.
The next day we returned for their Hop Scotch event, sat at the bar, and again had a great time. The gumbo is awesome. We will return, but probably not for the dining room.

From the outside, Khyber Pass looks like an anonymous Old City dive bar, where tattoed grifters can hoist a few Yuenglings while waiting for the detox clinic to open.
Well, true; however, walk inside, into the narrow and dimly lit bar area, and cast your eyes upon a row of twenty-two tap handles that offer a thirsty patron a well-chosen selection of quality craft beers like Deschutes, Cigar City, Founders' and Goose Island - too name a few (along with a decent selection of Belgian beauties).
Add to this mix: correct glassware, efficient and knowledgable servers who keep your water glass filled along with a food menu heavy on meaty grub (In my case, a massive muffaleta sandwich) and you are in for a very great time at one of Philadelphia's classics.
If you are in the midst of a crawl, Eulogy is a few steps away. Enjoy.
