The Griffin Bar

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
The Griffin Bar, located on the 11th floor of the JW Marriott Dongdaemun Square, is one of the most popular rooftop bars in Seoul. From there, you can look at the majestic Heunginjimun Gate as surrounded by the busy Dongdaemun area. The outdoor terrace seats during the warm seasons are extremely popular (go early to get the best seats). You can enjoy a wide variety of single-malt whiskies and about 200 types of different wines as well as cocktails that range from fruity to heavy. Especially worth noting is the Arirang cocktail with munbaeju (munbae wine), black sesame, and other traditional Korean ingredients. Another Time Out recommendation would be the well-balanced Boutique (27,000 won) drink made with gin, Campari, basil and egg whites. Other fusion drinks include the Hangang Miracle and Dongdaemun Sling, only available at The Griffin Bar.
