A pretty choice for karaoke if you're looking for spacious rooms, a more modern atmosphere than most, and tons of current hits to choose from! The system allows you to search by artist or song directly on screen which is very convenient.Recommended for:Nightlife Lovers

I love Gaam! This place has got to be my favorite Korean lounge restaurant. The place is pretty big and there are so many tables. Even though this place gets pretty crowded, you'll probably be seated after 10 minutes max. There are really good vibes here. There's EDM playing and lights flashing everywhere. This is definitely a good alternative to clubbing. There's not really dancing, but people always have fun hanging out at their tables with their friends. In terms of food and drinks, order the Spicy Chicken Wings, Cheese Corn, and Yogurt Soju! So delicious!

Yes, I know Gaam is a lounge with loud music and tables on men sending soju to women trying to hit on them. People are decently dressed while having drinks and some food to snack on. I know that but I couldn't care less about any of that. I go to Gaam or one thing and one thing only: chicken wings.
Gaam's prices on both alcohol are food are surprisingly very reasonable. Everything tastes better than ToeBang downstairs and it's cheaper. The service is also very good.
So back to the chicken wings. I would venture to say that these are the best chicken wings in ktown. I have eaten a lot of Korean chicken wings in my life and I haven't found any that can eat this. For $14, you get a huge plate of spicy wings with yummy onion rings and a salad. I could eat that chicken everyday.
Their soju cocktails are stronger and better tasting than the other Korean bars. I love their mango soju. I haven't tried other flavors but will next time.
Gaam is on the 2nd floor above Bohemian inside Chapman Plaza. Valet parking is $2 with validation. It's strictly 21+ only and they check ID at the door. There's an outside patio too for when the weather is nicer.

When you walk in the restaurant you immediately feel the Zen atmosphere: large buddha statues and trickling bamboo streams. In terms of food and drinks, it serves the common Korean bar food ddukbokkie, fried chcken w/fries, kimchi fried rice, mussle, soup, etc. All food that goes perfectly with soju and beer. The place is always packed on the weekends making for a great atmosphere to hang out with a group of friends. One drawback are the chairs which are just made of wood with no padding. A bit uncomfortable.

You've never been to a good korean bar until you've been to Gaam. The setting is almost like a club, and they play loud but upbeat music. The lighting and setting is super cool, and everyone's just having a great time. It's always packed, so getting a patio seat is still good. I like the korean bar vibe when it's one of those nights you want to drink, talk and hang out with your friends. The soju shots keep comin' and they have a lot of good food items to choose from. I've been to Seoul, and I think Gaam is even funner than the korean bars I went to in Korea!

Gaam is large and spacious and always a convenient place to meet up for drinks. The food is so-so and they have some korean dishes mixed with various other fusion foods. Happy hour is a great deal! It can get fairly loud in here due to the large open space packed with tables.
