Poetic Bar 시집


This wine bar opened in Ikseondong, one of the hippest areas in Seoul these days. It’s actually more of a pocha (tent street bar) than a regular bar and the owner says he wanted to create a space where you can drink affordable, quality wine. What makes this bar more interesting is the variety of people frequenting it. Thanks to all the gay bars in the vicinity that have been around before the neighborhood started to get popular, stylish gays pay a visit to have wine and chat. As there are a number of guesthouses and hotels in the area, laid back foreign tourists are spotted quite often as well. It’s like a street café in the alleys of Barcelona or Bangkok. If you want to drink wine in a mysterious atmosphere in the center of Seoul, head here ASAP!
