It's one of the cutest and most charming part of Seoul to leisurely enjoy the shops, cafes, galleries, and restaurants. But it's also one of the wealthiest and most expensive part of town as well. After 10 pm, it is very difficult to find a cab so you may be required to walk towards Anguk Station before spotting one.
Coffee Shelf or Coffee Seonban (from Embassy of Poland, head north bound and pass Samcheongdong Police Substation. Turn immediate right into an alley-like street. Cafe will be on your right side )
Jazz Story Bar ( north of landmark #5 on map above. You will see small green city buses parked front of a large house-gate on your left side. The bar is located across the street. )
