  1. Two different experiences with this place

    “I've had both a positive and negative experience with Bar Friends. First time I went it was quiet and staff were friendly and attempting to communicate with me which was nice. But the second time, on a Saturday night about 10pm, the place was packed - 98% Korean customers - and the bar staff were not engaging at all. They didn't seem to be very engaging to their Korean customers either. It does have a cosy, warm vibe so maybe you should try it out for yourself if you're in the Jongno area.“

  2. Best First Impressions!

    “I was only in Seoul for four days during the week last June and happened to find this bar via travelgayasia. I walked in on a quiet Tuesday night and really had a nice time! The owner was really friendly and the drinks and service was excellent! I love my alcohol and my drink tab was only 65,000 won which is cheap for Los Angeles standards (where I live) and I ended up returning a second and third time during my four-day trip! I was encouraged to sit next to a fellow bar patron that was also alone and we had a really nice visit! Overall, this place is very welcoming and I will definitely return. Though I am Korean-American and my Korean is minimal, I was quite comfortable as everyone else spoke beautiful English! I am even learning more Korean so I can return and practice a bit! Thank you Bar Friends! You are the love of my life! Lol!“

  3. Nice cosy bar

    “The manager/boss of Bar Friends is very friendly and can speak good English. During my last visit, I saw quite a number of foreigners and those who came alone, the staff would try to make small talk with them to make them feel welcomed. Drink are reasonably-priced.“
