Drink as much draft beer as you can hold down on Thursdays at Long T in Kyungsung.
Busan Haps Review:
BUSAN, South Korea — When you walk into Long. T bar in Kyungsung, your eyes are immediately drawn to the bar itself. It’s huge. A rectangular mass of deeply-stained wood with enough room in the middle for ten or fifteen bartenders to work comfortably. There are never that many, usually about five or six, but that’s more than enough to serve up strong drinks all night. There speciality of course being the Long Island Ice Tea for the dangerously low price of 5,000 won.
Opened in March of 2010, the Korean-owned bar has become more and more popular with expats and visitors to Busan. There are three electronic dart boards, a regulation size pool table with plenty of room to spare and generous seating.
For a bar it’s size, it doesn’t feel that big inside. When the room lights are down and the alternating red, blue and green mood lighting is going on, the place actually feels cozy.
The great thing about having the large rectangular bar is that you never have a bad seat for the “Flare Show,” which the bartenders perform several times a night in between serving just about any kind of cocktail you can think of.
They also have a decent selection of side dishes if you’re hungry, but Long. T is more about playing pool and darts and drinking the cheapest Long Islands around.
Long. T’s owner, who goes by “Moon” tried to create an atmosphere that offered a variety of drinks and activities to customers. There are a ton of bars in Kyungsung, each with their own flavor and Moon set out to set Long T apart.
“With so many bars in one area, we want to offer something more. Great music, fun games and tasty drinks is what we want to be known for,” says Moon.
Long time dart player and local tournament champ, Terry Dash, says that Long. T is one of his favorite places to play darts. “The great thing about playing darts here is that even if you come to the bar alone and it’s a slow night early in the week, the bar staff can give you a run for your money on the boards.”
