Eating or drinking solo, dubbed in Korean as honbap and honsul respectively, is becoming more common in Korea. To keep up with the trend, an increasing number of restaurants and bars in Seoul are designed in a way to allow solo customers to enjoy their personal time to the fullest. If you are planning to travel solo, read on for our top six recommended places to give yourself a treat!
Beer lovers are in for a treat! At Mikkeller Bar, visitors can taste up to 30 different kinds of craft beer from Denmark. A one-time visit may not be enough as the bar’s tap lineup changes regularly. Along with the tapped beer for visitors to try out, house beers with different levels of hops, alcohol content, taste, and scent are also available.
Aside from the wide selection of beers to choose from, Mikkeller Bar also has glasses in different sizes, offering an excellent tasting opportunity for solo drinkers. What makes Mikkeller Bar even more special for honsul visitors are its hallway-like rooms. These special well-lit rooms are separated by partitions, allowing visitors to take advantage of a peaceful time alone.
