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 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

Tacky, load and overpriced. We ordered three "snacks." Two of the three brought to our table were incorrect. Totally mediocre quality. Food bill = $230 US. No kidding. Would not recommend.
