On the first floor is a bistro serving Italian cuisine, on the second bar is a bar and the third floor is reserved for a rooftop café and bar. Among the three, the rooftop is arguably the most popular, and if you want to get a table there, you’ve got to arrive before 7pm and even earlier on weekends since they don’t take reservations. If you are finally lucky enough to catch a table for some drinks and side dishes, you’ll soon realize that the menu mainly offers cocktails and whisky. Oriole is a single malt whisky bar. The price level is on the higher end of things—like, Cheongdam-dong high. Surprising, considering that it’s in Haebangchon. Cocktails are usually 16,000 won and there are no beers on the menu. You can order bottles of wine though. So you can’t have a cold beer or a glass of wine early in the evening here. Then what about their side dishes? I’m sorry to break it to you, but they weren’t great. The view was awesome, but the mood was ruined. Here’s my suggestion. If you want to have some cocktails or whisky, come here after a pre-drink and don’t bother ordering food. I’m saying this in case you had planned to go before 7pm, on an empty stomach.
