Ssam bar closing earlier?
Does anyone know why Ssam Bar has started closing at 12, as opposed to staying open late-night?
It seems silly not be to be open late-night at least Thurs.-Sat.. Wasn't that the original concept of this place? I was in there recently on a Wednesday, and they ended up turning away multiple groups of befuddled diners between 12-12:30am. I guess its back to Blue Ribbon for a late-night fix!
My guess is because:
1. Ssam Bar is now slammed the second they open for dinner, putting pressure on the kitchen.
2. Chang et al. want to focus their energies on moving Noodle Bar to a new space and opening up Ko in the current Noodle Bar space.
