Perched near the top of scenic Dalmaji Hill in the Haeundae area of Busan, Opera graciously rises five stories, resembling the plush balcony seating section of a concert hall. With the name of the venue no doubt taken from this architectural resemblance, once inside, you’ll discover that each and every floor of Opera offers a little something different from the last. The decor inside the main halls of Opera is flush with light browns and whites making the atmosphere feel elegant, cool, and clean on each and every level. Cocktail enthusiasts will want to make an immediate bee-line for the second floor, where a world class bar turns out some of the world’s favorite cocktails – think tequila sunrises and Long Island Ice Teas, creative new mixes, and even their own flavorful house concoction: the Opera Special Cocktail. The bar also stocks dozens of premium labels of whisky from Scotland along with cognac, which are ideal to savor while you decide which floor at Opera suits you best. On the lower floors, visitors will get the chance to partake in the South Korean tradition of karaoke, while the floors above the bar house a restaurant serving fantastic Korean and international food and most importantly, sweeping views out to the beach and sea.
