Creative cocktails and single malt whiskey have been under the spotlight for the past few years in Korea. With many searching for speakeasies around the city, sipping and tasting original cocktails, enjoying the smoky or delicate taste of single malt whiskey, Seoul is perhaps going through an alcoholic awakening of a sort. Responding to such demand is the opening of a cocktail week at the Itaewon and Hannam-dong area. Around 30 different bars will serve their signature cocktails, creating a menu of 64 cocktails available to try out. An exciting offer this event will provide is the 30% discount on all signature cocktails. You’ll be able to enjoy some creative booze, which normally costs over 20,000 won, without as much financial burden.
