Pocha 32 interiors at night with silver circular tables, groups of people seated for dinner, and tons of string lights and ornaments hanging from the ceiling

Pocha 32

Korean

Koreatown

$$$$Perfect For:Late Night Eats

Included In

You can drink soju at many places in Koreatown, but nowhere does soju like Pocha 32. Most of the tables in this second-floor space are topped with hollowed-out watermelons and pineapples filled with the rice-based liquor, and the ceiling is covered in fishnets with dangling soju bottle caps. It’s definitely a place to drink with groups - it’s usually packed until close on weekends - but the family-style food here is pretty good, too. The budae jjigae (a big metal cauldron of ramen stew loaded with spam, rice cakes, kimchi, and hot dogs) should be on your table.
