Beat Bar

Posted by on Apr 24, 2013 in | Comments Off on Beat Bar

Beat Bar is a great place, where all kinds of people go.  It is a melting pot of teachers, engineers and locals.   The bar owner Pete Beat and his colleagues are really cool and friendly. Every time you walk into the bar they all say “Hello”, it’s like being in the TV show ‘Cheers.’  There is free popcorn on the tables and at the bar too. For some entertainment there is a darts board and a pool table.   At the...

Pub HQ

Posted by on Jan 3, 2013 in | Comments Off on Pub HQ

By Aaron Crossen Hite and OB, which together control most of South Korea’s market for slightly malted beverages, have been churning out untold millions of bottles of their trademark tasteless swill, with virtually no appreciable competition from upstart breweries, since The Olden Tymes. Partial credit is due to the famously competent central government and specifically an old federal law regulating the production of alcoholic beverages. For Westerners (and in particular, Canadians and Americans – Europeans have long had more options)...

Sticky Fingers: Live Music in Samsandong!

Posted by on Dec 24, 2012 in | Comments Off on Sticky Fingers: Live Music in Samsandong!

By Deirdre Madden For those unfamiliar with the discography of the Rolling Stones, the name “Sticky Fingers” might sound like a bawdy house, but one glimpse at the trademark tongue logo, and you’ll know you’re in a rock’n’roll bar. And if that doesn’t tip you off, there’s a stage set with a drum kit and guitars, ready for a show at a moment’s notice, in the back corner. Sticky Fingers is the creation of Cheong Sil Park, drummer for...

I’ll admit that this writer has a certain bias in his opinion, but underneath the rough surface of this hidden Shinae hotspot there is a whole lot of heart.   Located just a little over a block west of Shigaetop on the second floor, left-hand side, is Manila Town. A newly established bar as of last December. The owner, Maria, created the venue...

Posted by on Oct 4, 2012 in | Comments Off on ‘Stache Potatoes rock out in the ROK.

By Deirdre Madden Moving half way around the world to teach English can be tough. You leave behind your friends and family, move to a culture completely different from your own, and often find yourself as little more than a glorified babysitter pressing play on a tape deck. One of the keys to surviving a year (or more) in a land far from home is to find a way to do something you love in your spare time. ‘Stache...

Posted by on Sep 14, 2012 in | Comments Off on Pub Thursday’s

Ulsan’s Dong-Gu seems to be getting all the best new pubs and restaurants these days. The newest addition to the area is Pub Thursday’s near Hyundai Hotel. Thursday’s is a western style pub that appeals to Expats and Koreans  with it’s clean style and eclectic menu. Just opened in May of this year, the place is spotlessly clean and furnished with comfortable chairs. As any respectable pub should have, the draft beer selection is admirable. Guiness, Kilkenny, Hoegaarden, Miller...
