A suave rooftop retreat in Seoul, KLOUD will elevate you to cloud nine with its combination of sweeping views and cocktails made with both skill and style.

Seoul’s first proper rooftop bar, KLOUD has burst on to the city’s nightlife scene with a ‘unique-in-the-capital’ combination of cloud-scraping location, elegant atmosphere, and world class cocktails. 

KLOUD is located on the twenty-first floor of the plush Mercure Ambassador hotel, and while you don’t have to be a guest to pay a visit to the bar, you will still feel like you have been whisked to somewhere special the moment you exit the elevators. Exuding a ‘catwalk-meets-greenhouse’ first impression (think lush greenery, artificial turf, and sheer glass walls), KLOUD describes itself as the type of place where James Bond would want to loosen his tie on an off-night in the summer. And it succeeds. The venue is chic, while still managing to be colorful and fun, with sweeping views of Seoul’s twinkling lights, majestic mountains, and colorful sunsets always just a glance away. All in all, KLOUD feels more like a friend’s amazing New York City penthouse apartment than hotel bar; well, if your friend had a roommate who happened to be an internationally-acclaimed bartender, that is.  

Yes, the mixology at KLOUD is as exclusive as the venue itself, with stunning cocktails being churned out by a dream team headed up by a world champion. Their signature cocktail is a playful combination of spirit, sorbet, and melted macaron, while their champagne selection (perfect for toasting the sunset) and bottle selection is equally impressive. Credit Photo:
