Hongdae's ever-popular Thursday Party now has some serious competition with Playground Rooftop Cafe & Bar. Catering to the same fun-loving crowd of exchange students and open-minded 20-somethings, this two story establishment is located right across from the notorious playground, giving you a great view of the haunt's shenanigans. Language exchanges, international parties and all-you-can-drink events are held on a regular basis. As said events may suggest, the smiling staff is quite English-friendly (some speak Japanese and Chinese as well) and the crowd's an even balance of Koreans and foreigners. It may not be the place for serious language study but if alcohol boosts your Korean-conversation confidence, note that Cass on tap’s only 2,500 won and it does seem like the kind of place where most people come to drink Cass.
