By Subway

Take the subway to Sinsa Station (신사역/新沙驛, Orange Line 3, station #337). From exit #8 walk straight, then up the hill for about 6 minutes. After passing KB Bank and Hyundai Car Dealership you should find the building of El Bulín on your left.

By Taxis

South Korea's common address system does not go by street and street number. Because of this most taxi drivers do not know how to drive you to your destination if you just provide him with an address. This happens even if the taxi is equipped with a satellite navigation system. Please also note that most taxi drivers do not speak any foreign languages.

When taking taxis, locals usually provide detail directions to the destination or references to famous landmarks. You can use these two landmarks to get to El Bulín by taxis. Be sure to mention "Sinsa-dong" so the taxi driver knows which general area you are talking about.

  • André Kim (앙드레 김) - the headquarter of the famous Korean fashion designer. André Kim is only a few buildings down from El Bulín.
  • Young Dong Hotel (영동 호텔) - Young Dong Hotel is right across the street from from El Bulín.
