Bar Boon is one of the best bars we’ve been to in Korea and we live in Seoul. You’re not going to find a better cocktail. The ingredients are local and top shelf and the tastes are absolutely delicious. It is definitely worth a visit. You will not be disappointed!

This is located in the middle of a traditional market in Gyeongju, the kind of location that I have never anticipated. But once I got in, I was mesmerized by the classy and fancy look of the bar. On top of that, I particularly loved their signature cocktails made of traditional Korean alcohols and presented in a unique way (check out the cool pictures!). If you happen to be in Gyeongju, I highly recommend going to this place. I'm pretty sure that you won't regret it!

Extremely fun staff to be around and converse with. They speak very good English and are very friendly and personable. They know a lot about the alcohol and cocktails they serve and make a mean cocktail. They use a lot of homemade and local ingredients to mix up tasty cocktails. We ordered the Black Pink and the Smoked American and they were both delicious. The Smoked American makes for a very Instagram friendly presentation. I highly recommend visiting this friendly bar with chill vibes.

Spent a great saturday evening at Bar Boon, a Gyeongju cocktail bar with excellent mixed drinks and ambiance. This was one of the first cozy cocktail bars (with English-speaking staff) that we found during our trip. The bar even offers specialty drinks with Korean herbs :)

As someone said, this is a hidden gem. I was lucky to end up here because a traditional Korean bar by poseok-ro had no place for a single person and I did not work. The boss Jay and bartenders taeyeong, solbi are great people, who not only know well the great variety of spirits they have on the shelves, but also very friendly. They do great cocktails, testified by the non-stop order of various cocktails. I am not so much a cocktail person and I tried four different brands of Korean spirits with APV Going from 40% to 52%. They serve snacks (some are for free) but when I felt like eating some meat-based snacks, Jay put down his works and guided me to a friend chicken outlet down the lane. If you want to have a place to talk to English-speaking locals, and have an interesting range of spirits and cocktails, this is the place. It gives the vibe like in the bar in the 1980s sitcom 'Cheers' (even before everybody knows your name) especially if you sit by the bar. You know what I mean if you are Senior enough like me.
