All the woman who come to 37 Grill and Bar on Wednesday night can get either a glass of wine or a cocktail for free. Here you can choose anything from Spanish Cava, Chilean Pinot Noir and mojito, which is 25,000 won. And on top of the free drink, you can enjoy the night view of northern Seoul as well as N Seoul Tower. So sitting next to the window would make this deal even more satisfying. Wine is recommended for your second drink as it costs only 10,000 won.
To briefly talk about the drink I had here, Brachetto d'Aqui Spumante was recommended to me as it is sold at Conrad Seoul only. But it was a little too sweet for my taste. If you are not a big fan of sweet drinks or sweet wine, consider other options but this. Still, their Perfect Cosmopolitan had a great balance in taste; sweet in the beginning but bitter and heavy in the end. Bonita Senorita, which was made like a mojito using tequila, was also a little too sweet for me and I say a classic mojito would be a safer choice. A fun Wednesday night with your lover and your friends is waiting for you at Conrad Seoul.
