OB's is the perfect getaway for any expat looking for something familiar. Thankfully, it has become the home away from home for many people living here in Changwon. We would like to think we offer customers a comfortable atmosphere with great food and friendly service. Some useful information about the bar * Taco Tuesday every Tuesday * We have a dart board and a pool table, both are free of charge. * Thursday night is Poker Night, NL Texas Holdem, starts at 10pm. * We have recently expanded out craft beer selection, our draft IPA is very popular. * We have a burger deal every Friday. Free draft beer with our special. * OB's is the only foreign owned and run bar in the city. If you are not satisfied with your time at OB's, please let us know. We are always trying to better ourselves and any feedback would be greatly appreciated, thanks for visiting. Austin and the crew at OB's.

Dinner and a beer

Nice place to gather. Play pool. Eat and drink with friends. Enjoyed the atmosphere and the service. Wide variety of food and drink choices. A great place to hang out and feel like your among old friends.

There absolutely nothing complicated about this place and that is precisely why it is great. I simple pub with good beer food music crew and atmosphere is just great and relaxing. I just had my St Patrick here today with a bunch of colleagues and we all put our thumbs up.

Was an regular expat for 3 years. This is the place to go whether you're a new settler or just stopping through. Even though you can't put a price on a good foreigner hangout abroad, you can get great times, food, and drinks at a fair price.

Five and a half years in Korea, and I would have been lost without this place. Austin is hell of a stand up guy, always goes the extra mile or three for the foreign community of Changwon. I'll never forget this place, left a little of my heart there x

An incredible place, owned by an incredible guy. Austin makes it his nightly job to ensure the patrons of this fine establishment and happy and full be it with a selection of lagers, bottled beer, ales, spirits or wine or with generous and prompt western food. The best fish and chips you can buy in Changwon (perhaps the only) excellent... More

In every city I travel to my goal is to find an Irish pub so I can taste a good pour of draft Guinness. And at City7 Mall in Changwon I found O'Briens Irish Bar and Restaurant. They poured a very good Guinness - well worth trying if you're in Changwon.

If you are in need of some friends to help you forget about the difficulties of life in Korea, this is the place. All the foreigners from English speaking countries will eventfully find their way to O'briens. Some go for drinks, some go for fellowship, and others go to shop at the little foreign food section that is set up... More

O'Briens has a fantastic atmosphere, cultivated by its owner and carefully selected staff. The food is always fresh and appealing and the drinks are very reasonably priced, compared to the rest of Korea. Their specials, mini mart and events nights are outstanding but it is the care with which the owner has considered his small expat community, and how he... More

If you're looking for some good old fashioned pub grub in, then head into O'Briens pub in Changwon, across the street from the International hotel. Austin and his super friendly staff have created a small piece of Ireland in the heart of the Korean peninsula. Nightly food specials with Friday being Bacon Cheeseburger night. (My personal favourite!!) Once a month... More
