Next to Seoul’s Royal Palace is Seoul Tender Bar, a hidden secret bar that you’ll have to traverse small alleyways to find. Seoul Tender Bar was inspired by a Japanese bar of the same name, and is now one of the hottest little known bars in Seoul. Nestled in a back alley full of hanok (traditional Korean architecture), Seoul Tender Bar is in its own cozy and reinvented space of old. The bartenders are veteran mixologists of Seoul who serve delicious cocktails with snacks in fine porcelain. This amazing bar in the Gwanghwamun area is perfect for a experience unique to Korea after a long day wandering the palaces.
Note: Close by is another hidden cocktail bar, Cobbler.
