Cobbler – Seoulistic

The Cobbler is perfect for an ultimately unique bar you can’t find elsewhere in the world. This high-class whisky and cocktail bar in the middle of Seoul located inside a hanok (traditional Korean home); there’s limited seating with a few seats available at the bar as well as a few tables. Sit with the owner/bartenders if you can for good conversation and for your viewing pleasure. The vintage furniture in combination with the hanok roof is a sight to behold. It’s not very well-known at this point, but if you want to go to one of Seoul’s hidden bars tucked away in back alleys of Seoul, this is one must-go.

Note: Close by is another hidden cocktail bar, Seoul Tender Bar.
