Great beer list in Old City without the douchey crowds Old City tends to have.
The Khyber does NOLA food right, but it's also incredibly vegan-friendly. Their collards are 100% meatless, they do vegan gumbo, etc.
Ahh, The Khyber – The doorman here is hot. It's worth going to The Khyber just to go through the door.
Great Place, Great Bands – What a venue. The Getaway People, Brendan Benson & Army of Me are some on the bands that played at the Khyber. Great sound and great selection of beer.
Live rock lives at Khyber – No other way to put it: The Khyber is the best venue in Philly for catching new local bands and outstanding indie acts. Super beer selection, affordable whiskey, and a very tight, sweaty, and smoky room to see the night's act. In short -- EXACTLY what a rock club should be.
hip crowd, cool music – walking into khyber is like walking into a time warp where guys have longer hair than their female friends and music is more important than a well-made cocktail. every night of the week, khyber is packed with john lennon look-alikes, squeezing in to hear the latest local bands. don't go to this bar looking for a date or a tasty martini; that's what continental is for. go to throw back a couple of obscure import beers and listen to the moody and ecclectic bands.
Nasty – While I am all for dark and dingy the Khyber sucked. Even the band who was pretty good couldn't make up for the ill tempered crowd. I watched some girl sit down and swipe my smokes while I was listening to the music. It seemed like everyone else forgot how to smile. Also, one bartender charged a higher price for a beer then the other.
