Boksoondoga F1963

Located at the F1963 cultural centre is Boksoondoga, a fine dining restaurant celebrated for cultivating a revival of "makgeolli", a traditional variety of carbonated Korean rice wine that is fermented with "nuruk" and served unfiltered. Historically, this particular variety of wine was held to be a farmers' drink, but has now gained a following among the younger generations and brought into the realm of "hip" by enthusiasts such as the founding Kim brothers. The restaurant serves an excellent menu that straddles Korean and western influences. After a meal, explore on and browse through the book store and gallery space of F1963.

Bars & Nightlife

Gwangalli is the area to be once the sun has set, Seomyeon and Haeundae also remain fairly busy. It-places shift from one year to the next, although HQ Gwangan seems to have been able to maintain its patron base through the years. Galmegi Brewing and Gorilla Brewing are favourites for craft beer.
