In recent years, Seoul has begun expanding its spirits palette beyond soju and now whiskey bars seem all the rage. Enter B28, helmed by husband and wife duo Mike and Grace Soldner who opened the original in Singapore which is widely considered one of the top whiskey bars there.
B28 Seoul aims to conquer Seoul's burgeoning whiskey scene in a similar way. Just like its namesake, B28 is underground and purposely not easy to find. The interior is all about luxury as all good whiskey bars tend to be - darkly lit and quietly elegant, with a nod to mid-century, Mad Men-esque decor.
The draw here is single malt and single cask whiskey. B28 boasts one of the largest selections in Seoul and is always looking to add a larger variety of offerings. They even offer fine cigars to pair with your Speyside Single Malt. For those that aren't whiskey connoisseurs, B28 offers a full bar with everything ranging from classic cocktails to rare rums to craft beers.
Start here for an elegant beginning to your night and if you've got the stamina, move the party to their sister bar, B28 Bottle Club where the bar comes to you.
