Pistil: Bao down to
Itaewon's new hidden gem.

Category : Bars/Pubs/Clubs | Fast Food
Oct 14, 2015

The fashionable hipsters with advanced music tastes in Itaewon who frequented Cakeshop, before
it got too popular for it's own good, can now be found drinking at their new watering hole called Pistil.




It's chill vibes here with the same appreciation for music. The creators that brought us Cakeshop
opened Pistil this May and they're delivering the same great music but here it's mellower.


It's not a club like the ragers at Cakeshop, it would be more correctly put as a lounge and bar.





that gets many dancing anyway.




Here, there's also a higher standard with it's cocktails and they've added food! Which varies
seasonally and will delight any 'bao' fan.



The apple doesn't fall far from the tree and at Pistil too, you'll find an impressive line up of DJ's every
weekend. In their first month, brining in big names like TÂCHES and Terrence Parker.



While entrance is 10,000 won with a free drink, they hold special Thursday nights called
"Thursday Magazine" that's free entry.




For all the Cakeshop fans who've grown weary of the lines and crowds, Pistil has fast become the
place to be. The masterminds behind Cakeshop and Pistil who seem to be doing something right,
are always one step ahead of the game.
