Theme restaurants in Koreatown

Paid a visit last weekend to Cafe Jack, a "Titanic" themed restaurant in Koreatown that's shaped like a ship, with "Jack & Rose" sushi on the menu and Christmas-in-a-New-Orleans-bordello decor. Very peculiar and fun. Someone was telling me there's another theme restaurant in that area where waiters dress in school uniforms and carry chalkboards. Anyone know about that place? Or other theme restaurants in K-town? I love places like this.

  1. Went to Cafe Jack when it first opened. My wife and I thought it was a lot of fun. At the time it was very quiet and romantic in a bit of a cheesy way.

    I don't think they have much food and the coffee isn't that great. The coffee is expensive. While it is a fun place, it is more of your usual Korean coffee house where people go to socialize. The coffee is expensive because people go there to hang out.

    I heard about Haus, which is a Korean coffee place modeled after LA Mill. They might be taking the coffee a little more seriously.

    I like going to these coffee shops. They remind me of the coffee shops in Vietnam where groups of friends get together and hang out all night.
