Came here on a Friday night, and they play good music which is the most important thing! Can't really remember everything about the night to be honest, but there was a good selection of RnB music and it was really lively and packed. I think...I remember there only being one toilet though which is the downside.More

WOW WOW WOW! What a top-notch bar! It was Friday night; my friend and his girlfriend made me hunt them down in some NYC Irish pub, and the night took off from there! It was my mate's 30th weekend so we were up for a...proper blow out, and by that I mean a massive night out. Thing is, for me, it was the night after an obligatory 'Welcome to New York' kind of night. Needless to say I was a little bit tender and the thought of prosecco or wine was just too much! My mate's totally awesome girlfriend is if Korean decent, and suggested Soju in Korea Town, "Soju, what on Earth is that?" I asked. Let me tell thee, I found out the only way any Soju virgin queen should...via a Sojubomb in a 3rd floor Korean kind of speakeasy. The bar was called Maru. We had the yoghurt soju flask, followed by another flavour, accompanied by fruit. That stuff is near-lethal but oh so good! If you're looking for a different kind of night, definitely hit-up Maru in Korea Town, and get some Soju down your neck! I'm now a fully-fledged Soju-lover. Thanks Maru and Korea TownMore

If you're visiting on the weekend, Maru Lounge is the place to be on a Saturday night. The DJ is great, he plays just the right mix of music (I guarantee you'll feel like he's playing music just for you). They do run a bit...on the expensive side when it comes to alcohol, but they do have great food and great vibes.More

They have awesome chicken wings! Their songs are updated. Their service is amazing. They will come to check if anything needs to be refilled. The bartenders are quick! The only downside is the restroom, i guess drunk people can't really use the bathroom properly. But...the staff does check on the restroom frequently. The bouncers does not play, they will kick you out. Always my go to spot when in k-town.More

This was a random stop while walking through Korea town. It was daytime and we went inside to find a great Dj and great fluorescent lighting. We ordered a carafe of lychee soju and it was delicious! We ordered the appetizer sampler off the menu...and it was quite large! It was delivered to the table quickly even as the place started to fill up as the day went on.More

We saw a promotion (on the website like this one that starts with a Y) for a free hour of karaoke when you check in at Maru. It was my first experience at a karaoke bar with private rooms, and it was great! There were...lots of songs to chose from- even some pretty new ones, and there was a good drink menu. We made sure to limit ourselves to an hour, because the normal rate is $40/hour. After heading to a nearby bar, we decided to go back to Maru for their reverse happy hour, which has half off karaoke from midnight to close. The rooms were perfect for the 6 people in our group. I should add that there is food available, but we didn't try it.More
