If you are feeling a bit down in the dumps because your favourite cocktail bar is closed for the next few weeks, then don’t despair because they are going to be going on the road doing a series of pop ups at three of my favourite restaurants. This weekend they will be keeping it local and having an event in Itaewon at Detroit style pizza place Motor City. Next weekend they will be over in Gyodae at WinK, and finally their last pop up will be hosted at The Beastro in Hongdae.

If you are as big a fan of the Southside Parlor cocktails as I am, then you have probably sampled a few to say the least. Above are just a few of the lovely libations I supped upon during my last visit. However this pop up series has a tiki style theme. Owner Bobby told me that “Tiki is a state of mind where people want to have a good time with amazing refreshing drinks. Southside Parlour fits that vibe so the transition to tiki ain’t no thang. We want to introduce modern Texas Tiki to Korea (not that we’re the first tiki bar) and show everyone how we like to party! Tiki cocktails are drinks that we think can easily fit the Korean palate with all the fresh tropical fruits and flavors. We hope that everyone enjoys the event and learns a little about the Texas Tiki Vibe!” Sounds like the perfect thing to get us feeling the Spring vibes we are currently experiencing. 

You probably don’t need much more convincing, it being a Friday and all, but all the cocktails on the tiki menu are just 10,000 won a piece. Plus the different host bars will also be providing tiki themed foods for you to feast upon while you drink, so there’s no need to get sloppy.

The pop ups dates are as follows:

Motor City – Itaewon – Friday March 24th & Saturday March 25th

WinK – Kyodae – Friday March 31st, Saturday April 1st, & Sunday April 2nd

The Beastro – Hongdae – Friday April 7th, Saturday April 8th, & Sunday April 9th
