UPDATE: March 2013 – Cocky is closed, and has been replaced by Red Ball. ***** Welcome Cocky as the newest addition to the Dong-Gu area bars, lounges and nightclubs.   In an area that lately has become rife with foreigners, a number of friendly places to have a drink, play a game and just relax have made the selection of where to spend the evening just a tad more difficult.  Cocky has some special features, however, that should making...

St. Patrick’s Day – March 17th

Posted by on Mar 13, 2012 in | Comments Off on St. Patrick’s Day – March 17th

St. Patrick is probably the most widely known Catholic saint in the entire world, though few of those who recognize the name know who he was. St. Paddy is the patron saint of Ireland, given the honour of sainthood for ridding the island of snakes (a metaphor for spreading Christianity and driving out the pagan religion, as there weren’t likely any actual snakes there to begin with). In recent years, however, his feast day has been claimed by Irish  the...

The Golden Eagles – British Pub

Posted by on Dec 18, 2011 in | Comments Off on The Golden Eagles – British Pub

Now located in Ilsan Beach in Dong-gu Suspicious. The interior seemed right. Once inside we decided to try a pint. The first thing I looked at was a pint of Guinness. But at over 12000 won a pint, I’ve owned vehicles that were worth less. They had a decent range of imports, I can’t remember them all, but there was Asahi and Hoegaarden, comparable in price to Wgarden or Eurus.  We decided on trying the local “Eagles” draft. Usually,...

Lounge Rococo

Posted by on Oct 24, 2011 in | Comments Off on Lounge Rococo

Somewhat reminiscent of days of old when Acid was where all the cool kids raved, Lounge Rococo keeps the beat thumping. Arty, techno glass and chrome decor surrounds the dance floor where the DJs spin to keep the college-age crowd gyrating.  Or at least swaying to the heavy bass thump. On a recent Friday night visit to Rococo, the dance floor was moderately crowded with young, squeaky clean college student age ravers. It wasn’t immediately clear that this generation...

Review: Busan International Music Festival

Posted by on Aug 9, 2011 in | Comments Off on Review: Busan International Music Festival

By Deirdre Madden Last weekend, my friends and I drove down to join in the 12th Annual Busan International Rock Festival, held this year at Samrak Park, near Gimhae. The event took place over three days, kicking off Friday evening at 4:30pm, and finishing up Sunday at around 11:30pm. The point of this festival is to showcase Korea’s highly talented non-K-pop bands, and introduce Korean rock fans to international talent. Being a small-scale, free, city-run event, it doesn’t attract...
