    I’ve been trying to keep this one a secret. Small bar that pretty much only serves craft beers. Always quiet, has a sort of medieval theme.

    This place prides itself on its monastery theme and follows it through with a shhhhh policy. Employees will literally shush you if you speak too loudly. Order a seasonal brew and sip silently. Read more

    We've Shhhed people since the early '90s. Appreciate the things that stay the same. Volume varies from barkeep to barkeep, when I'm behind the bar I try to keep it quiet. Enjoy the beer/conversation.

    Having read your comments in here, I was actually a bit disappointed as I expected the bar to be much quieter. They should "shhhhh" people more often. Great place to drinking the finest Belgian beers.

    Be sure to obey the one cardinal rule - no talking loudly, or else you'll get a big "SHHHH" from the bartender! The beer list is excellent, so it's a great place to (quietly) catch up with a friend.
