Nice dive bar in the center of posh old city fakery.

An oasis from the Jersey douchebag types.

The Khyber is okay, usually has lots of bands playing, however it is kind of grungy. The bathrooms when I went were overflowing and pretty disgusting, but I guess if you find a band you like, this is the place to go.

This bar was possibly one of the WORSE bars I have been to in a long time. The bartender (who thought he was some cool guy) took a 20 from me and gave me change back for a 10 then told me I was lying. Laughed at my friend who asked for a

Pros: potential to be fun

Cons: bartenders

I think this is the longest running bar in the city. It's small, tight, and usually crowded. I go to hear music and they get good shows. They do pile on the gigs though and some start quite late. It's loud - I think the sound system could be better. Still it's worth it - I've seen some super shows here over the years.

This bar is a great bar. When I went there , there was not a lot of people there but it was still fun. Gram and Jason were two of the nicest people that I have met. I was there from Ohio and we have nothing like that there. Thanks for the

Pros: Sunday Nights

The staff is mostly rude fat dudes with bad tatoos, and even worse hygeine. The prices are fair and even cheap for some stuff, I went on a wens day and they had djs upstairs, they played good music, but were terrible at djng, The bar

Pros: Great live bands, cheap specials, somewhat cool crowds

I was in town for busines and I stopped in on a wednesday night. I was hoping to have a good beer and see some live music. The old style wooden bar is cool. They have around twelve taps of GOOD micro brews, most of which is local. After I

1st time at the Khyber 2nd live show. I was there with good friends and the had great bands. It was a dark, gritty atmosphere with a good alcohol selection and great fans of music. Stop in if you wanna see a good show.

Pros: Atmosphere, Music, Drinks

Cons: Service [not everyone]

The Khyber is a nice lounge to hangout at. They have live music downstairs with good music. Though on the weekends the crowd can inhibit your view of the bands. the upstairs lounge is nice place to chill. They have good music playing with decent drinks and prices are average too.

The Khyber is easily the best rock bar in Philadelphia, and one of my personal favorites in the entire country. Laid back, unassumingly hip and inexpensive, this bar will quickly become your favorite hang. Every time I go there I feel

Pros: Great Music, Inexpensive, Not Snobby

Cons: Smokey

.

Don't expect glitz here. It's a pretty standard, small rock club. I enjoy listening to new music, but sometimes the collection is a bit mixed. Then again, it's probably not easy to try to get three bands that appeal to the same

Pros: no attitude, good beer

The doorman here is hot. It's worth going to The Khyber just to go through the door.

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.

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

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,

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

Cons: Nasty Crowd, Cover not woth it

Editorial from

In Short
Classic rock club: simple, dark and smoky, with reams of flyers papering the walls to announce upcoming shows. The bar itself is another story. The ornate wooden carving--complete with red-eyed gargoyles--was made in…
