Soju Hof in 신촌 (Sinchon)
Exit 2 @ Sinchon Station & walk towards the bookstore next McDonalds, walk down until you get to the crossroads where Nature Republic is. Keep walking in that direction until you reach Krispy Kreme Donuts. It should be next to Krispy Kreme or a few doors away.

The bad thing about this place is the ambiguous name. There’s a display banner out front with pictures of the food & the word “호프” The dining area is located downstairs & has a hof feel to it. There’s a full on menu & it is expected that you buy food whether you drink or not.
The BBQ plate was less than stellar with almost no flavor in the meat. The only decent thing I tasted that night was the 해물 바전 (seafood pancake). I was a bit suspicious when they handed us the “English” menu & when we asked for the Korean menu, they said they ran out… HMM. The other tables around us seemed to be having fun though. One table was even celebrating a birthday with cake & everything. It looks like a chill & quaint place to drink with your colleagues. But I would not recommend this place as a dinner location.
