Yup, it's the latest addition to the celebrity restauranteur Hong Seok-cheon's "My" series. The rooftop bar housed on top of a building which Hong purchased and had renovated himself has attracted lots of locals and tourists alike already—surrounded by the million-dollar night view of Seoul Tower, the rooftop space along with the 5th-floor restaurant decorated with flashy pink and purple neon signs does live up to the now household name. The inside is filled with indeed everything trendy; from the hand-crafted mother of pearl inlay chest of drawers to large-size black-and-white portraits, it showcases all of the furniture pieces and types of artworks that are considered "in" right now.
The menu is surprisingly large, with salads, pastas and steaks priced at around 20,000 won. As with all of the other "My" series of restaurants, the food itself isn't something you'd want to go back to this place for, but the barley risotto made with squid ink was great. The cheapest beer here is priced at 7,000 won, and the grapefruit beer priced at 9,000 won is actually quite refreshing especially for hot summer days.
Above all, though, what will put My Sky on the map is the scenery. Although it isn't very high up, the lack of high-rises in the area provides an unobtrusive view that is pretty much warmed up with the quaint houses nestled around the building along with rays of orange light beaming down the scene.
