"What Sub" Beer and Liquor Bar in Gangnam

Here's the question:

How exactly do you get to What Sub? I know where Castle Praha is since it's on the main street but those little side streets are so confusing.


I've actually gotten three questions about "What Sub" since my failed attempt to convince a fellow expat to give Korea a chance before running back home. Managing the side streets of Gangnam is a pain. Everything looks the same and after a few drinks, patience for searching usually runs thin pretty quickly. I remember a couple years ago we were searching for "Woodstock 2" and ended up spending over an hour walking in circles on the same two roads. We never found it either. That doesn't need to happen and since I live in the area, I can offer simple directions to "What Sub".



Looks hard, right. All you gotta do is walk out Gangnam Station exit 7. Go straight until you reach the McDonald's and City Theatre on your right. Just past McDonald's there's a small road that runs into the main drag. Walk up the hill. You'll reach a small side road running parallel to the main road. Cross it and keep walking up the hill. Once you cross that little road, start looking up and to your right. "What Sub" is about the 4th building on your right.



Once you see the building, the door is on the right.



The bar is on the third floor. Enjoy!

If anybody has any questions, just send me an email at asktheexpat@yahoo.com or leave a comment.

It's best to get there before 10pm. If you have a big group, then I'd say before 930. It's a great little bar, but it's just that: little.

Wooodstock, or specifically "woodstock2" you were looking for is actually the small Woodstock music pub on the Yeoksam-dong side of Gangnam-daero. Indeed hard to find, but worth it. I just happened to find that as of recently they have some info & location on facebook:
facebook.com/Woodstock.Music.Bar.Gangnam

cheers!
