Type of Establishment: Jazz Bar
Location: Near Bukyoung University. Take the subway (Line 2) to the Bukyoung/Kyoungsoung station. With your back to Kyoungsoung at the T-junction, walk toward Bukyoung University on the left side of the main road. Turn left at the "TTL" shop (the next-to-last street before you reach the Bukyoung campus). Monk will be about 100 meters up on the left.
Review: Any bar named after Thelonius Sphere Monk had better play a lot of jazz. They do, as well as a fair amount of blues, rock, and soul. They have regular jazz bands (local) on Tuesdays and Thursdays. There is a jam on Mondays at 10:30, and other live jazz (and occasional rock/blues) bands on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Monk also hosts the popular "Poetry Plus"about once every five weeks. Check the Events calendar for current info and dates.
Great sound--cool place to check out bands. There's lots of seating and a bar, and an "upper deck" seating area with a nice view of the ample stage. Monk attracts a lot of music lovers, and gets a fairly mixed crowd. Prices aren't bad: bottles of domestic for 4,000 won, and some other interesting labels (Erdinger Dunkel, Murphy's Stout, Flensberger Pilsener...) from 5,000-14,000 won. Be there, or be square.
