It can get very crowded and loud. The biggest drawback is the absolutely outrageous beverage prices. The bands are decent, but the overall experience is not worth the price. Besides, many of the patrons give off a significantly desperate (I'm in town on biz without my wife) or professional barflys. The positive is they speak English in a largely English-poor... More

This place is so expensive it's insulting! Don't bother unless you are on an expense account $18 if you want a decent beer.

This was a great place to go for a drink however you can struggle to relax as it is normally full to the brim, and probably one of the most popular bars in Seoul!! Certainly worth a visit as we had a couple of good evenings there!

Nice music. If too loud? Get a garden seat outside. One Pool table also available. You can smoke after 9pm (after the dinner crowd). Waiters look serious but very helpful. Also, macho looking security guys at the entrance. Makes you feel safe....

What can I add to the above? The (cover) band was really good, the beer was icy cold, and there are lots of rich Koreans freeling spending their daddy's money. Great fun!

If I have friends visiting from Hong Kong or somewhere else who can't speak Korean this IS the club to go to. The girls here are looking for champagne and a little bit of an older crowd, but they love English speakers here. Champagne is reasonably priced versus the vodka. So you don't mind dropping some cash and are looking... More

The drinks were overpriced. There was music but no DJ to be seen. People were nice and friendly. Music was kind of loud in places so you could not really speak
