This is the bar that brought the once-exclusively-Cheongdam-style high-end bars to Itaewon. Though everything is brand spanking new, they certainly splurged indulgently on making the place look every bit the vintage, old, tradition-filled European bar. The high ceiling, the long circular bar at the center, the many sparkling light fixtures atop the bar... everything is really as glamorous as the name promises. It's also known as the spot where young gentlemen in suits and professional career-minded individuals come to meet well-heeled fancy women. But on weekends, the crowd lined up all the way in front of the aleyway changes completely. These are the generically beautiful fashionistas that have come to symbolize Gangnam. The place draws a crowd even on weekdays, and the atmosphere works fine for a simple cocktail as well, which means truckloads of people come for a quick pick-me-up after work. The DJ is keenly aware of the vibe, and chooses the sexiest sounds befitting the venue. There is a dress code: Shirts with hoods are not allowed, and the only T-shirts allowed are PK shirts, the kind with collars. Fedoras are allowed, but caps aren't. Consider yourself warned.
