“Nice club”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

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

“Total Rip Off”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

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.

We had lunch here and it was just right for what we wanted and not too expensive. Service and meal was great.

“Great club to unwind”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Usually good live bands and always crowded with nice people including many locals. The club next door is a great place to check out when the band is on a break.

Only downside is that the drinks are extremely expensive.

“Good atmosphere and crowd”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

We went here on a Wednesday night of a business trip after a Basketball match as we had been told it was where lots of expats liked to hang out. When we got there before 10 it wasn't very busy but they were already blasting house music on the empty dancefloor which seemed a bit anti-social.

Luckily the bar is divided into a couple of areas and there was a jazz/funk band in another area that were better. They got progressively more pop as the evening went on, but they weren't too bad. The whole place got progressively busier too and by midnight it seemed pretty popular. The customers seemed a mix of locals and westerners.

We had some food to share as a bit of a snack and the pizzas in particular were impressive even by Italian restaurant standards.

If you go upstairs to the main hotel lobby, there are impressive views of Seoul (see pic attached).
