long island iced tea exterior kyungsungThe bar is named after the famous drink from Long Island. And yes, I Wikipedia-ed that fact just to be sure (in the mid 1970s at that… I really expected it to be older). Anyway, YES they have Long Island Iced Teas here, and YES, they’re cheap! 5,000 won will get you a decent sized glass.

I know what you’re thinking: “But Dave, surely it must be watered down!” But nay, you can actually taste the booze in there (which is a good thing, since the recipe is basically all booze). Further proof: we went in for a single drink, but ended up leaving 5 hours later. They have other drinks too, of course – and a pretty extensive drink list at that. You can get everything for dirt cheap. One in our group paid 6,000 for a Pina Colada (there’s no fruit on the lip of the glass, though, if you’re that kind of person).

Directions: Subway exit 1, take your first right and go one block down. Bar is on the right-hand side. See the map for the exact location.
