Unless you are specifically looking for the place, walking past Junior's JR Pub (AKA JR Pub) without noticing it would be quite easy. Wandering around Itaewon one Friday evening, we did exactly that. Luckily, gazing through the waist high windows we noticed the inviting atmosphere and stopped in. With it's comfortable interior, friendly staff, and reasonable prices, JR Pub is many things rolled into one package. By day, it's a nice pub and restaurant with music playing at a comfortable level. As the evening progresses, the music changes slightly to subtle dance beats (still played at a comfortable level). When the evening crowd starts to roll in, the house lights are dimmed a bit and the dance lights are lit, and the music is kicked up a notch. When the mood is right, the dance floor fills and the dance beats pound. RoKAbout.com enjoyed JR Pub so much, we stopped by two consecutive nights in a row while in Seoul.
