Jjan’s can be hard to find - head around to the back of the building, through a private parking lot until you see the sign - but once inside, you’ll be glad you searched it out. Especially if you’re nostalgic for the basement ragers of your youth. Blinking lights strewn everywhere, giant pitchers of beer, and tables of friends getting very drunk. They don’t serve great food, but the 420 Fries (topped with cheese, Cheetos, and an egg) are exactly what you want at 12:45am when your vision’s starting to get dicey. Also, you definitely go for some frozen beer - it’s basically regular beer topped with a freezing foam ice cap to keep it colder for longer.
