About

It's located on Gyeongnidan street, walkable from Itaewon subway station and Grand Hyatt Hotel in Namsan. One of the pioneers of the vinyl trend in Korea.

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Itaewon
Neighboring the immense Yongsan American Garrison, Itaewon was once shunned by locals as a seedy, red light district. But within the past few years, Itaewon and its surrounding neighborhoods such as Kyunglidan and Haebangchong have undergone a major revival to quickly become one of Seoul’s hottest areas. Here, trendy international restaurants dot the area alongside hip lounge bars and some of Seoul’s hottest club venues. After dark, Itaewon comes into its own as one of Seoul’s top party scenes. The crowd is a fascinating patchwork of all backgrounds and identities, including a small but thriving Muslim community (centered on Korea’s sole mosque), the LGBT community (with a string of popular bars and clubs), and a wide range of ethnicities and cultures scattered around. Those seeking a quiet respite should head towards the eastern end, in Hannam-dong, which not only has one of Korea’s best art museums, the Leeum Samsung Museum of Art, but plenty of mid-range to upscale restaurants and cafes.
How to get there

I just happened to be here with a work colleague for a few days. A spur of the moment decision led me to choose this place. Decor is minimalist, choice of beers ok, but some very nice whiskey and other spirits.The vinyl collection is impressive as is the organisation of this library. Write down your request and the dj finds it an mixes with the next selection. A great place to go and I think improves with numbers. What a place for a themed party!

What a cool bar. Vinyl records line the walls and you can smell them when you enter. You are served a drink with pen and paper to make your song selection. The DJ seems to have no labels or obvious system but he finds what you want to listen to. It's like sitting in a dukebox. The staff are cool and relaxed. The bartender serving us was a lovely and genuine lady from Istanbul.

Whatever you want to hear, they have it ... on vinyl!!!!! We started on Manchester rock, got drunk and ended up in Chico Buarque "A pesar de voce". Had a great time.

The sort of place you will definitely revisit if in Seoul and love music and enjoy a drink. From the owner who offered interesting nibbles upon arrival to the clientele..place smacks of friendliness and good vibes.

the place is situated on the second floor of the building (entrance is from the ally)
i liked the place it had more of an urban decor. a sat on the bar but there are different tables to sit as well. the music was good both western and local and was played by a live DJ playing the enormous verity of vinyl records in the bar. crowd was eclectic and mostly local. drinks were good they have different draft beer to chose from as well as other "harder" drinks as expected prices were good. they also serve food there but i didn't try so can't comment.

altogether although i came alone i didn't feel alone, had great time there wish i could buy some of the vinyl. but beware of the DJ if you touch them, he gave me a real angry look

the good:
*atmosphere, music
*drinks

the bad:
*can't touch the vinyl
*can't buy vinyl

Excellent vibe in the bar - relaxed fitout and a positive crowd. We were lucky enough to catch the DJ (and possibly owner?) playing a lot of boogie and synth-funk during our time there so that was a massive bonus for me. Will definitely be back next time I'm in Seoul. 100% five stars A+

We had a group of 17 wandering the streets for a very long time looking for this tiny pub. We asked many along our travels but no one had heard of it. I think that's because we didn't ask the right people. Once we found the place, the line never stopped!

The line was at a walk-up 'window' bar selling cocktails in a bag! A very novel idea - but also expensive for the non-drinker. Everyone else had some sort of alcoholic mix for 5,000 won. I had straight cranberry juice - for 4,000 won. Seems juice is more expensive than alcohol!
