I was led to what I later found out is called “Radio Bar” late on a Saturday night about 10 months ago, and I didn’t quite remember how to get there, or what the name was. Since it was late on a Saturday night, and since we had just come from Long Island Iced Tea (5k won Long Islands… uh oh), you can also imagine my overall mental state. Luckily, a few of us in our group were with-it enough to take some pictures.
It was described to us by our friend who led us there as the “wooden ship bar,” and I guess on the inside, it is indeed kinda like a wooden ship. Porthole windows. Wood. Ale. Just like pirates. Check out the comments section for some more info on the unique architecture.
Basically, it’s a cool bar with a super-laid-back atmosphere, and was foreigner-free. Nice lil unique place. They have lots of vinyl, and will apparently take requests. Foreign beer on tap as well!
From the metro: Kyungsung exit 1. Take your first right, then turn right on the 2nd street. It will be somewhere on your left, set back from the street a little, on the 2nd floor. It’s across from “Twenty 21 One Bar”. **UPDATE: “21 Bar” may be closed, so instead, look across the street from “Camping Rock” that has an inflatable raft hanging outside.
From the main Family Mart: Walk down the street towards Namcheon and it’ll be on your right, across from “Twenty 21 One Bar.” Or you can take the street that runs from the smaller Family Mart above OL’55 again towards Namcheon and you will find a pretty funky back entrance into it.
Thanks to Matthew Sidgreaves and Elise for the info!
