This week we visit: South Korea
One of the most important things to know when visiting a city, especially a major global city like Seoul, South Korea, is where to go for a perfectly mixed cocktail. A real nightlife experience is never complete without a delicious drink and we would like to introduce some of the best cocktail bars in Seoul.
The Timber House is one cocktail bar not to miss in Seoul, characterized by its concept design that brings the traditional Korean house to the 21st century with sleek solutions. It also happens to offer some of the best-mixed cocktails in this part of the world. Their selection of single malts is also amazing.
JW Marriott Dongdaemun Square Seoul is a hotel just across the street from East Gate and it features a bar at its rooftop – the Griffin Bar JW Marriott. In the very short time it has been open, it has already become one of the most popular drinking spots. Cocktails are superbly mixed, the staff is knowledgeable and the view is just insane.
If you are looking for the fanciest cocktail bar in Seoul, that would definitely be the Glam Lounge, truly a place to be seen. The menu is somewhat standard but if you order bottle service, you will be treated to a sushi and sashimi spread. A huge one.
For whiskey lovers, there is only one place in Seoul to visit and that is the Coffee Bar K. Despite its somewhat clumsily chosen name, this bar has more than 400 whiskeys on offer. The cocktail list is quite impressive too, with more than 200 cocktails on it.
