World Best Bar

Home of one of the world’s most exciting bar scenes, Seoul very much epitomizes the motto “work hard, play harder”.
French restaurateur Luc Sananes and Ballantine’s take us on a bar-hopping journey to discover the best bars in the capital – and sample delicious whisky cocktails in the process.
Starting at Pussyfoot Saloon, a gorgeous train-themed venue in Myeondong that transports us back to a vintage world of first-class travels, we then head over to Gangnam‘s Le Chamber, an elegant lounge hidden behind a magical bookcase, where Luc is joined by two local friends who walk him through the ins and outs of Korean drinking culture.
A quick bite, a few beers and a short night’s sleep later, it’s time for day 2. We follow Luc to trendy Euljiro to discover another hidden gem called Jean Frigo, set in a traditional Korean house accessible through a fridge inside a grocery store.
After finishing things off on a mouthwatering note at the food market, one thing is for sure: if Seoul wasn’t already in your bucket list, it will be now.
