Lonely Planet review for Garosu-Gil
This tree-lined street is filling up with more and more cute fashion boutiques, art galleries, music bars and cafés. French food, wine and style is much in evidence, but mixed in with the usual Italian and Asian styles. The street’s trendy newcomers are now spilling over into the side streets. Recommended places to pop into include La Cuba Latin Music Pub, Pain de Papa (unique breads), King Kong Steak (a reasonably-priced, stylish diner), Lone Costume (fashionista styles with attitude), bloom & goûté (real French choux pastry in a flower-scented pavement café), and Grandmother (Arabian Nights fantasy bar). From Apgujeong subway station exit 5, walk straight for 10 minutes to arrive at the northern end of Garosu-gil. It’s a 10-minute walk to Sinsa subway station (Line 3, Exit 8) from the street’s southern end.
