Korea has always had an obsession with organic products. Although selling organic products in Korea is often used as a gimic, Café 5 CiJung offers original Makkeoli cocktails and drinks, which are complimented by private art exhibitions, all organized by the owner, Oh(5 in Korean) CiJung.
Finding one of those ‘Stand-out’ restaurants in Garosu Gil must be a challenge to pretty much everyone even if you come across the street often. Sometimes having too many choices could be more bothersome than not having any!
Well, if you are lost as to where to go or what to eat in Garosu-gil, you might want to try the European restaurant, ‘the pretty house’, Casa Bonita, located right across Tom N Toms Coffee in the middle of the main Garosu street.
Come celebrate with us at Sir Raymond English pub! (Yes, we are celebrating Saint Patty’s day at an English pub haha).
I will be there from 9pm onwards along with a reasonably sized crowd. Put something green on and let’s celebrate with a pint of Guiness! Say hello if you see a guy wearing a ridiculously neon green polo shirt.
Sir Raymond pub is located in Garosu-gil, Sinsa. See directions after the jump for more details
Seoul is one of the largest cities by land mass in the world. Because it’s so large, there are so many regions to visit for different kinds of people, looking for their ways of fun at night. In coming series of SeoulGrid, we will cover various regions of Seoul and what each place has to offer.
Each area will be reviewed for 1.) Relative Location in Seoul, 2.) Types of venues 3.) Prices 4.) Accessibility via subway 5.) Demographic of the area, and 6.) Restaurants, Bars, Clubs or Lounges around the area.
SeoulGrid will divide Seoul up into 7 parts, as far as night life is concerned.

So next time you are looking for a nice hot spot or a new ‘it place’ in Seoul to hang out with your friends for drinking, clubbing, partying or chilling out in Seoul, you will know where to look!
Articles describing each coming soon, so stay tuned!
Sometimes you just need your own space – which is the reason why I was rather hesitant to write this article to begin with. I sort of wanted to keep this venue out of everyone’s sight, which I am sure the venue owner will strongly disagree with, but I decided to share my hidden gem with everyone on the site.
The venue in question is titled Social Club, in the middle of Shinsa Garosu-gil. It is located smack in the middle of the main street, right across from 7/11. I ended up checking out the place when I noticed a sign that I didn’t notice before. Fairly conspicuous with its minimalist design, the square sign suggested it must be a new trendy place in Shinsa.
