  2. My favourite bar in Seoul

    “If you are like me and a single Gay traveller visiting Seoul and finding the language barrier a little overwhelming, then this is the bar for you. The owner speaks English very well and is friendly and will actually talk to you. Sit at the bar, order a drink and you may find yourself being introduced to other patrons. There are other tables spread out so you can easily bring friends along too. Highly recommended“

  5. Best bar in Jongno 3 for foreigners

    “I've lived in Seoul for 6 years and I've gone around to several bars in Jongno 3, nothing compares to Barcode. Jin, the owner is one of the only bartenders they can speak english well enough to have a conversation with. He makes u feel welcomed and I was able to meet other friendly men there. Barcode is a laid back bar with reasonably priced drinks.“

  9. 'Best little bar in Jongno'

    “Great service, well-priced drinks and a friendly crowd. I first visited this bar when I relocated to Seoul in February 2015. The barman/owner is excellent company, mixes a good drink and is very generous with his knowledge of gay life in Seoul. The bar is cool and discrete, and attracts a mixed, fun and friendly crowd. A great place to start or end your evening. I have returned many times since my first visit and have always had a good night.“
