Best Wine Bars in Seoul
Though mainly noted for soju and makgeolli, Seoul has some of the most distinctive wines that do not fail to impress. If you’re in the area and are looking for a restaurant or bar where you can satisfy your craving, consider visiting any of the following options that are ideal for any occasion:
1. Wine Connection in Hongdae
Located in the bustling neighborhood of Hongdae, Wine Connection offers an attractive space for wine lovers. Like its sister locations in Singapore and Thailand, this wine bar in Seoul features an impressive collection of bottles from around the world. If you’ll visit, make sure to try their Sea Bass Steak set, which comes with Caesar Salad and two glasses of wine or lemonade.

What makes LUVEC stand out among other wine bars in Seoul is its cozy interior. Adorned with red sheer curtains, comfy couches, and a dimly lit bar, LUVEC is what you may call an instant mood-booster.

3. White Noise Wine Bar in Yeonhui-dong
Considered as a hidden gem for many locals, White Noise Wine Bar or 백색소음 와인바 is a place filled with bookshelves (with actual reading materials!) and a study table. The idea behind this quaint wine bar is to “read, talk, and drink,” which help customers tune out of their worries and stresses. What’s nice about this wine bar in Seoul is that they also have a few seats for those who come alone, so if you feel like having your me-time, go ahead and visit this bar.
