Don't confuse the club with a pop band you'll hear here. With free cover and cheap drinks, Ting Ting's has earned a spot as a 'first bar' while out in Hongdae. By 11pm there's a decent crowd around the bar, while the pool table and Phoenix electronic dartboard has some great games to watch. Venture to the bar for anything from an inexpensive cocktail (4,000 and up) to a 병 (bottle) of Guinness for 10,000 won. Plenty of English menus and top-shelf liquors available, but drinks are just part of the fun.
