Located on the first floor of the GLAD Hotel, the bar’s name alludes to the Huckleberry Finn author born Samuel Langhorne Clemens. Going under the pseudonym, Mark Twain, the author was a notorious lover of whiskeys and the bar is full of references to the author. The menu, for instance, is the book Huckleberry Finn but has the bar’s options inside. Enjoy here several independent whiskeys that can’t be found in ordinary single-malt whiskey bars as well as drinks made by a Korean World Class champion bartender, Suh Sung-tae. When asked if we were ready to order by the bartender, my friend answered, “Do you have any cocktails that will lift my spirits? My heart is heavy. Oh, and I like cocktails with frangelico in them.” (She had shed 10 kg because of her boyfriend). The bartender stopped, as if to think, but immediately started to tinkle behind the bar to mix a drink. The cocktail came out in a teacup with white cream on top. I would’ve thought the cup contained milk tea if I didn’t know any better. I took a sip of this nameless drink and it was absolutely delicious. It was exactly the kind of drink that could rid the burdens off of your shoulders, if only just for one moment.
