Popular, homely gay bar on ‘Homo Hill’ with a little touch of style. Always Homme 올웨이즈옴므 serves a nice range of cocktails, beer, wine, juices and coffee.

Busy on the weekend before/after clubbing hours, with mostly tourists, expats and young local guys. The music is not too loud, and the friendly staff can speak English.

From Itaewon Station (Exit 3), walk to the next street and turn right. Take the second left and walk halfway up the hill and look for the sign on the left.
