  1. It is quite large for a Gay Bar in Seoul

    “The first thing about this bar-in-a-basement is that it is quite spacious. Heaps of room. Lots of tables and chairs, space to dance (if you feel like it) or just sit at one of stools at the bar like I did. Spoke to a couple of Korean guys who are regulars at the bar and they were friendly. The bar owner - who has been running it for 8 years - and his assistant were also both friendly. When I visited last night there was a large group of friends sitting together and one of them just randomly got up and did his own dance performance to a K-Pop song. He was really into it and so much fun to watch. I really liked Viva.“

  2. Nice bar different from others

    “Nice bar. Attracts younger guys. But I'm in my 40's and have felt welcomed. Every other Sunday is salsa night with a welcoming group of regulars. Apparently salsa lessons on Tuesday. Open Mic night on Wednesday relaxed. Bar owner is sweet and attentive.“

  4. An unique gay bar with lots of gay cultures

    “I visited on Saturday night, some cute 20s were dancing to K-pop. So sissy and funny. The bar master said a piano live is on Wed. So I visited this bar again on Wednesday. Some gays sang ballad songs on piano LIVE. So entertaining.“
