Bars, Wine bars Jongno-gu
4 out of 5 stars

Situated in Seochon, Barcelona has become one of the most sought-after bars in Seoul. There is nothing blatantly special about the interior, but the kitchen is well-maintained, the dining space seats up to three or four parties, and the lights are dimmed to a warm, welcoming glow. On the menu is a wide range of bottled foreign beers and Spanish wines, but Barcelona’s specialty is the sherry, a wine with a surprisingly high alcohol content. A perfect pairing with almost any wine from extensive wine list is the "Gambas al Ajillo," a traditional Spanish dish made from simmering a batch of shrimp and garlic in olive oil. Although Seochon is known as an emerging, trendy neighborhood, it can be rather quiet at night as it is after all, a residential area. Only in Barcelona does the feast ensue, and so does the party.
