Gone are the days when the bartender wore a monk's robe, much like the Gregorian chants. Still this little bar is a nice place to venture for a quiet drink. The bartender will shush you when you get loud.
This little hole in the has a dozen beers on tap (mostly Belgian ales). I don't know if they still have a bottle selection as I usually drink from the tap.
The atmosphere is laid back and quiet. There's no television to watch 'the game.' THis place is meant to be an escape from the city and it does a good job with this.
Definitely worth a visit.

I loved the theme/atmosphere of this place. My girlfriend hated it. We spent the better part of our time here debating the appropriateness of shushing. I think in this setting it's totally warranted and I got a kick out of it. Where my argument fell apart was with the bartender (I would have scored the service even lower but I'm giving the other bartenders the benefit of the doubt). She spent the whole time talking to one patron and largely ignoring everyone else. When she poured me the Saison Dupont instead of the Dupont Monk's Stout, I heard her say to her friend that it was my fault for not enunciating properly. My feeling is that if you listen to more than one word of someone's order you'll have more success. So in her case, I agree with my girlfriend: being shushed by this particular bartender was very annoying. But with a different bartender I bet I would really really like this place. I generally prefer quieter bars. Lots of hipster college kids here though. The selection was small but high in quality. A bit pricey, too. Side note, this place had some of the best/nerdiest bathroom graffiti ever. Doctor Who references, Harry Potter references, math nerd humor. Great stuff.
