Bar Trek - The Monk

Dear Bar Trekkers,

Even though Pete has sadly departed us, I'm sure you'll all agree that we must bravely stumble on. The show must go on!

After much expectation (and waiting) The Monk is open again, so let's pay them a visit!

Address:  Rue Saint-Catherine,42  -  Map: http://tinyurl.com/37owz3v)

The bar has changed from its previous incarnation. More foody and less beery (boo hiss!). But still a decent beer range and plenty of space. More info on www.monk.be (which just links to their FB page).

As it only opened again recently, it might be quite busy so who knows how easily we will find spots to sit in. I'm not expecting problems, but we shall see.....

BTW - When I went they had the much sought after beer - Trappist Westvleteren 12 (XII) - for 8.95 Euros , which is as cheap as I've ever seen it in a bar.  Still damn expensive though. No idea if it'll be available when we go.

There's a buffet room in the back now (where the smoking room used to be), where you can get some pasta dishes before the bar trek if you want, or until 11pm.

Apparently the bar officially closes at 1am already, not sure how accurate that is. So perhaps we'll stumble to another bar in the neighborhood afterwards still.

My mobile number will be: 0497/053166 - Give me a shout on that if you're lost (after checking your map that you printed out, didn't you?........) or can't see us in the bar.

Cheers

David

    You know it's also the Kafka's 1st birthday this night? But they are pretty close together. We could simultaneously celebrate the old new Monk and the new old Monk!
