David Yi's City Guide

Golmok Vinyl Pub

“I’m allergic to neon signs, loud noises, and overcrowded spaces. If I’m looking to chill out and have a beer on tap, I’ll go to Vinyl Bar in Itaewon, a bar that’s unassuming, plays vintage records, and is super cozy. It’s a great spot to hideaway.” -David Yi

What To Wear To Golmok Vinyl Pub


Tryst

“Tryst is more innocent than its name might suggest. It’s one of the newer restaurants in trendy Apgujeong and perfect for a hearty lunch. With fusion recipes likes Korean style spaghetti, bacon kimchi fried rice, among others, it’s a perfect place to make your belly –and Instagram feed –happy.” -David Yi

Lusso Lab

“By far my most enjoyable coffee experience was at Lusso Lab in Cheongdamdong. They have this iced coffee called ‘The Dutch’, where ice cubes are made of cold brew. You melt it by pouring whole milk over it and it’s literally the best drink I’ve tasted –ever.” -David Yi

Unistella

“On top of a small mountain is a gallery space galled Gana. While it isn’t as big as most gallery spaces, it holds the best art in Seoul, if not all of Asia.” -David Yi

“I’m a CrossFitter and when I’m in Seoul, I’ll head to a super clean and modern facility called 4TP, south of the river. Owned by a Korean pop star named Brian Joo, its coaches are top notch and the program is on par with any of the best Crossfit boxes in the States I’ve been to.” -David Yi
