The nine

Time Out says

The-Nine introduces itself as “the bar of trans fat” and the place does live up to that name with its fatty, high-calories munchies. Having a rather different air from Jongno’s usual marketplace atmosphere, this place serves you greasy, generous food that goes well with soju and beer. One of the most popular places on Gaysbook during the weekends, their specialty is deep-fried chicken in hot pepper sauce (kkhan-ppong chicken) served with their butter-based sauce. The bar also wins plus points for being one that serves Sapporo on tap—something that does not often happen in gay bars of the district. Sitting next to a narrow alley, the bar allows for stolen glances at guys smoking outside through its huge glass windows. The strange chemistry between the bar’s sexy owner and the cute part-timer adds a little more to this place but you may want to rush if you are planning to visit on the weekend as the place may fill up pretty fast.
