An off-white exterior, with no particular clue as to what the place is about—Slow Steady Club stands out in the alleys of Bukchon in a strange way. Upon walking into the venue you'll realize it showcases contemporary designer brands such as Blankof and Auralee, but what's on the upstairs would still remain a mystery as the nonchalant staff working on the first floor wouldn't mention anything particular. Even after walking up the old, scratched wooden stairs leading up to the second floor and ordering a drink at the counter, you might wonder: "So, where can I sit?" What you want to do at that moment is to turn around to find the rusted metal ladder that doesn't in any way seem to be for customers. Don't be discouraged, though, as all you need to do is to climb it—you're not actually breaking into anyone's private property (even if it feels as if you are). You can't see what's up there from below, but what you'll see in a few seconds is a surprisingly awesome view of a mountain peak. The space itself is rather humble, with no swanky decor anything, but it's quite cozy and chill. Personally, I wished I could have a pint or a margarita up on the rooftop, but a cup of ice coffee, I realized, is quite alright as the beautiful scenery of Bukhansan mountain makes it all the more special—I can't believe I'm saying this myself, but I could feel indeed slow and steady at this place without any alcohol present.
