Located on the basement level of the Four Seasons Hotel, Charles H. has been the talk of the town since speakeasy bars in Seoul became popular. There is no sign to enter but if you can’t find it–you can cheat and ask a hotel staff member. Once inside, you’ll notice the interior of this beautiful speakeasy bar is by far one of Seoul’s fanciest. They also import expert bartenders to serve the best cocktails in Seoul. Since the prices are so steep and the cover charge is above average, you might want to save going to this bar for a special occasion. Once you get your hands on one, you’ll know why Charles H. is widely considered one of the best bars in Seoul.
