Southgate, the new Korean gastropub located at the former Tangier space at 18th and Lombard Streets, officially rolled out happy hour on Thursday. Their huge, flavorful wings have been a big hit in the early going (as has the bulgogi burger, koreancini, bibimbap — ok I’ll just stop here), but the star of the happy hour menu is no doubt the $6 Southern Korean Fried Chicken Sandwich.
Oh, they also have dessert. The misugaru shortcake was a winner out of the gate, but this week they also introduced a butterscotch pot de creme topped with a 맛동산 (salty sweet Korean candy snack) toffee. Anyways, back to business.
Happy hour runs from 5-6:30 p.m. daily (Tuesday-Sunday) and will cover the whole restaurant, outdoor seating, and bar. According to owner Peter Hwang, it may end up being just bar/outdoor seating on the weekends.
