|Just a few of the cocktails @ Cafe 74.|
The bar has a very extensive cocktail menu. It includes all the cocktails you can possibly name and a lot more to boot. As I said, this is my favourite bar and I always try to choose different cocktails but I’ve probably tried less than a quarter of them.
|And a few more.|
There is one that I do like to return to every time I visit though. It’s the white chocolate martini. Simply put, it’s like heaven in a glass to me! It’s blended with fresh strawberries and the chunk of white chocolate they garnish it with never fails to put a smile on my face either.

As I mentioned it’s very very cool in here. So much so that they don’t give you a paper menu but an iPad instead. The music like many places in Korea is a mix of House and Electro. It’s upbeat and played at a good volume, not too loud so you can’t hear yourself speak. On the projector screen behind the bar they play videos of Victoria’s Secret (basically lots of attractive semi-naked ladies to you men) Fashion shows and iconic music artisits’ concerts.
Needless to say cool doesn’t come cheap. The drinks here top the price range of Seoul bars. You’ll pay between 18,000 to 22,000 won for a cocktail and on top of that you’ll pay tax and service (as with most of the upscale places these days). You could order a beer which would be considerably cheaper but let’s face it, if you want to drink beer you might as well go do that somewhere else. Come here for fantastic cocktails mixed by professionals and the very swanky atmosphere.
