Book & Pub

What’s better than combining reading and drinking? The name Book & Pub says it all. A modest bookstore, this place opened last April by Couchsurfing host, writer and traveler Kim Jong-hyun. After publishing the book Traveling with Couchsurfing, Kim’s original concept was to create a performance venue and café. Today, that idea has evolved into a bookstore that hosts shows and sells alcohol. Once an air ventilation repair shop, the 42m² space is now filled with books, shelves, chairs and beers. All of these things are good conversation starters so join them on Saturdays for a weekly discussion on independent publications. (Since many regulars are well-traveled, they’re likely to understand some English or be English friendly.)
