Seoul, South Korea • Memory • 28 April 2018

Permanently closed... Thai place with an authentic feel, small and usually packed. Step into Bangkok while in Seoul.

ATM (Against the Machine)

Seoul, South Korea • Recommendation • 28 April 2018

Small and cosy bar with a very chill bartender. They’ve got excellent boozy but simple cocktails without the fuzz. In winter their cast iron fireplace adds to the homey ambiance.

Seoul, South Korea • Recommendation • 4 September 2018

Good design / business hotel with a uninspired breakfast. Loved the room and general feeling of the hotel but the breakfast leaves a lot to wish for. Opened in March 2018.

Alecrew Craft Beer


Seoul, South Korea • Recommendation • 7 September 2018

With the recent years inflation in craft beer places Alecrew stands out of the crowd. Located on the Gyeongui Line Book Street, a train track converted to an pedestrian walkway, it offers a great setting for a few cold ones. They offer take out beer, so you can bring it to the oversized stairs along the tracks. Their beer selection is mostly local but a few international ones are also available.

Slumdog Barber Shop

슬럼독 바버샵

Seoul, South Korea • Recommendation • 7 September 2018

Dammit! Seriously the best barbershop I went to. This will become a regular visit whenever I pass by Seoul. The interior is a bit old school and campy, filled with Americana objects. Other the that, good service and great skills on beard trimming and hair cutting. Walked out feeling like a million bucks! 😁 Located in the hip Usadan-ro which is so dense with nice places it deserves its own list.

Mmm Records


Seoul, South Korea • Recommendation • 7 September 2018

Now this is a sweet spot on Usadan-ro! The focus on analog music culture is hard to miss. Posters all over the place reference lyrics from musical highlights that were pressed on vinyl. Supposedly their music library is based on a private collection of 80.000 LPs! There’s a few floors and a casual rooftop with one of Itaewon’s best views. Go there for some beers and enjoy, the music, view and overdose of neon!
