A sound dog that feels unusual just because it's located inside Yongsan Huam Market. The calm and compact interior stands out for its meticulous attention to detail so that you can focus on the music. Since the scale is small, the distance between the musicians and the audience is close, so there is a strong feeling that it is a performance created together while exchanging breath with the audience. Enjoy a heart-pounding performance with a glass of beer of your choice.

The name created by the desire to continue operating “for a thousand years” after it first opened in Daehakro in 1996 is a wonderful name. Following the Nakwon main store, they opened their doors in Jonggak, so access is easy. The advantage is that they have a diverse lineup of alcoholic beverages such as wine, whiskey, beer, and highballs. Appetizers such as pizza, salad, and goldfish sauce are also prepared, so you can enjoy plenty of time.
