The first thing you need to know about this second-story bar is how to find it: tucked between Blackbird and Meiji, up a flight of negelected stairs, into the den of Johnnie Walker Blue Label bottles. The young Korean-Americans don't usually arrive until midnight, but when they do, they order rounds of soju and anjou (hearty snacks, such as a seafood pancake, that come steaming from the kitchen in minutes). Stay late enough and you'll meet the host of the party, Alan Chou, who also owns Meiji restaurant downstairs.
