"The Lovely OB Hofs in Yeouido" Top 5 Page for this destination Western Bars and Hofs (Korean Bars) Tip by jburron
Western Bars and Hofs (Korean Bars), Seoul: 64 reviews and 100 photos
Similar to many hofs (short for the German: hoffsbrau) in Korea, the OB (owned by the beermakers: Oriental Breweries) hofs have local beer (OB of course!), some imported brands and Korean anjoo (drinking food such as chicken, sausage). OB Plaza is more central, and closer to the subway, but the ambiance is better in OB Park (about a 15 minute walk from the station, across the park, in West Yeouido). OB Park also has more TV screens and is a lot larger with a more festive atmosphere.
These places get pretty lively on weeknights as the stressed-out workers make their way to drunken bliss. Many co-ed as well as same-sex groups make for a loud time (feel free to join in) and the brews really get flowing at about 9PM.
Best thing here is the ok-priced beer (check the prices, sometimes it's CHEAPER to get glasses rather than pitchers--some weird economics) and the food. Ah, Korean hof food I love it...but it does destroy any diet you may have yourself on.
Dress Code: Anything, but since they are in Yeouido there are tons of suits and such here.
Address: 2 locations:
Directions: OB Plaza is under the Yaohan Securities Building (stairs opposite Kinko's) which is next to the HP Building (close to Youido Station (Line 5)). OB Park is across from the Kobos Hotel in West Yeouido (15 min westerly walk from the Station) B1.
