Neighborhood: Apgujeong #2

Hidden away on one of the many back streets of Apgujeong-dong is a bistro/lounge called Abbey Road. Felicia and I were initially attracted by its London Metro logo and promised to check it out the next time we were in the area. The walkway inside is quite long, and I felt unsure of whether or not this was indeed a restaurant. The building looks like it could be an art gallery, which I later discovered, kinda is. Serving up pasta, pizza, and sandwiches, it's not the ideal place for a full dinner. They boast an extensive drink list and serve one of the best apple martinis I've ever tasted (as seen in photo with Felicia).

On the way to the bathroom, I spotted some type of exhibit and snapped a photo. The work made sense when the waiter handed me a CD containing a music compilation plus an explanation guide for the art work they're hosting. All works were done by Hongik University's Textile Art and Fashion Design's students and graduates.

Food was okay, a little heavy on the olive oil. Go there to get drunk. If you don't like smoking beware, there's no nonsmoking sections. Also, it tends to be dead during traditional dinner hours on the weekdays; we went on Thursday at around 6:30pm, and we were the only people there. Then again, the weather was crap that day.

How to get there: Apgujung station (압구정역) exit #2, walk straight for around 10 minutes. Pass the large intersection with the S-Oil gas station (성수대교 사거리), turn right at the KB bank. Pass the Starbucks on your right. Abbey Road will be on your right, near the Princess Hotel. Look for the London metro sign.
