Something for the spectators: Beer O'Clock
Beer O’Clock (BOC) in Shinchon has been a neighborhood favorite hangout for watching sports since opening in 2009. Multiple games are shown every night, with hockey (NHL), football (NFL), and baseball (MLB) being the most popular. BOC also has nightly deals throughout the week on food and drink with seating for 60 people. There are two screens that are always on, and a larger screen is available for major events. At certain times, the bar will show two different games at once. English commentary is usually played during the NFL season and can also be requested for bigger events. BOC also shows the previous nights’ games, so please DO NOT spoil the results if coming to watch a replay; even better, stay away from the internet and Facebook to enjoy the games as if they were live.
Major events shown live include the Superbowl, the Olympics (mostly hockey), NCAA football and basketball, the Rugby World Cup, and weekly EPL games. It is best to ask at the bar if it will definitely be open for a specific sporting event. BOC has shown cricket, women’s soccer, boxing, tennis, Korean baseball and basketball, among many others. Don’t be afraid to ask; if we can get it, we will show it.
