Are you sick of seedy Itaewon nightlife? If all you're asking for is a harmless cocktail mid-week to
relieve some stress, I have an upscale recommendation for you.
This luxury lounge bar is in the Apgujeong rodeo area of Cheongdam and if you're trying to impress
someone, this is the kinda place you bring them. Just make sure you have some money to blow and
that you're outfit for the day will pass the dress-code check. Expect a 20,000 won entrance fee that
will get you a free drink and classic cocktails are priced at 15,000 won.
There's a lot I could applaud about the place, the actually really great music, the high quality and
presentation of the drinks and food, the interior and design.
But I think what this bar really gets right is successful combination of all of these. Because this bar
does all of this right, it's always got enough people (with money) on any day. And because of the
luxury qualities of the drinks, decor, and the dressed up posh crowd, the atmosphere as a result is
Even if you feel some intimidation, instantly as you walk in you'll feel (and look) cooler under the blue
and purple lights.
It's not too loud enough to have a real conversation, yet the music is upbeat enough to make you
wanna dance. But you won't, cause you're too cool.
Look out for the crowd favorite shark tank and my favorite is the outdoor area, which is perfect for big
groups and celebrations.
Once you've been there for too long and you wanna go for another round but don't really feel like
spending more than you already have, a really funny change is to head to Ho Bar, a very short walk
from the place. Yes, I speak from experience, this is what I did.
When you start heading out to leave, you'll notice that even the chairs will warmly give you a goodbye.
