Woodstock: Only the Best Bar in Seoul

One of my coworkers turned us on to this Western style bar called Woodstock. Kwang and I went to see what it was all about this past Friday night. We were in heaven. The bar has a huge collection of old records as well as DVD performances of all sorts of rock legends. There are little pieces of paper scattered around the bar to write your request songs on and then give to the DJ guy behind the bar. 

While we were there we heard all sorts of different music. I was shocked to see Peter, Paul and Mary come on the video screen. Yes, apparently Koreans know and love hippie-folk music just as much as I do. I had to quickly explain to Kwang that this was a special moment because he was experiencing the first band I had ever seen live (thanks Mom!). We also heard some death metal, a hair band or two and lots of the Beatles. Our requests included Marvin Gaye and Elton John. We are definitely coming back here.

  1. Peter, Paul & Mary were also my first live band experience. I know I saw them outside somewhere in VT - maybe Stratton or something? I vaguely remember going somewhere with chairlifts. Either way, maybe we were there at the same time, since I can't imagine they came to VT that many times!
