The best rooftop bars in Seoul
Rooftop bars are FINALLY trending in Seoul. See where the best ones are at
From the elite to the cheap
Find out that Southside Parlor's got a rooftop bar is like discovering your cute next door neighbor plays the guitar too. This fourth floor American-style bar is full of boyish charms and classic cocktails. However, head up one floor higher and you'll discover a candlelit rooftop with a straight shot view of Namsan Tower. Though not particularly fancy in design, it has everything you could want from a rooftop bar: dark lounge sofas in the corner with hookah stands by its side, music in the distance and an amazing view of the city. With the rooftop serviced only on weekends and closing at midnight, its hours differ from the bar itself. Bring your cute next door neighbor, romance them upstairs and cozy up downstairs.
