BUSAN, South Korea – This weekend marks the opening of the 2nd Wolfhound Irish Pub & Restaurant here in Korea. The new pub is located just a few minutes walk from Haeundae Beach, while the first, which opened in June of 2006 and has been a hit every since, is in the heart of Seoul’s Itaewon district.
In Itaewon, The Wolfhound Pub, also known as ‘The Wolf’, is a staple of the community, known for their good food, large selection of imported draft beers and strong double Jameson’s (“no bullshit pour”). Their burgers, fish & chips and all-day breakfast are the most popular food items, while Guinness, Cider and Jameson top the list for drinks.
Bringing the flavor of the Itaewon Pub to Busan, however, has not been an easy task.
Not only are the residents here in Busan eagerly awaiting this Saturday’s opening, but it seems like there is more than just a buzz up in Seoul as well. After booking their own bus, approximately 60 loyal customers will make the trek from Seoul to Busan for the opening, with the majority being part of what is called the ‘Sunday Funday Crew’.
The people that are the most excited for ‘The Wolf’ to open are the owners themselves — excited for a new city, a new challenge, new customers, and making new friends.
The Wolfhound Pub will open at 5 p.m. on weekdays, and 11 a.m. on the weekend. And don’t worry if you wake up late — they serve breakfast all day.
If you want to get their early for this Saturday’s opening the kitchen will start serving a limited menu from 12pm~9:30pm
Directions: From Haeundae Subway Station, exit number 5, walk straight for about 300 meters towards the Beach. They are on the right, on the 2nd floor, about 150 meters before the beach.
