Where is Embargo
Embargo is located in the cool little alley with popular venues Battbong, Sakana Lab, Katanashi and Patio Hotel, just off street 51, close to Domino’s. We recently heard someone calling the alley The Independence Alley which is a neat little name. Embargo is tucked deep into the back of the alley so you will have to venture a bit, but it’s still not a long walk and the map at the end of this article will help you.
