West Hollywood Gets A Legit Korean Drinking Spot Called Gangnam Pocha

Westsiders craving Korean can finally find soju, kimchi, and a healthy dose of Psy without having to head to K-Town.

Really exciting news for West Hollywood locals. The bustling stretch of restaurants and bars on Santa Monica Boulevard between La Cienaga and Doheny just got West Hollywood's first Korean restaurant/drinking den. Gangnam Pocha, which roughly translates to a pub in the trendy district of Seoul, lit its colorful sign featuring the god of Gangnam, Psy, opening its doors for the first time earlier this month.

Gangnam Pocha offers guests staple Korean bar bites like kimchi fried rice, chicken wings, spicy rice cakes, and budae jiggae (army stew chock full of hot dogs and spam) to pair with bottles of soju (cue even more Psy branding). And like all true Korean bars, expect loud K-Pop videos and flowing libations. WeHo's only Korean drinking and dining destination also offers a pretty stellar extended happy hour, with 30% off all food and alcohol from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m.
