Chez Mak – Sinsa dong

What we have heard:   ChezMak is an upscale ‘Contemporary Korean Dining Bar’ that is listed as one of the ’3 Trendiest Makgeolli Bars in Seoul’ by Mnet’s Enewsworld (alongside Moon Jar and Cheongdam (1) Mak).  It’s what you would expect from a makgeolli bar in Garusu-gil, and they have a wide selection of makgeolli cocktails and fancy dishes.  Our recommendation mentioned that most of the cocktail combinations were very sweet.

Mowmow – Itaewon

Name: Mowmow

Location: Itaewon

Recommended by:  10 Magazine

What we have heard:   Mowmow is new on the scene in premium makgeolli, and it also offers some pretty fancy makgeolli cocktails.  It has a more modern interior and the menu has classics such as pajeon and ddeokbokki, as well as some other fusion plates.  The interior looks open and comfortable with a lot of windows.   We’ve heard that the food is amazing and the makgeolli is of excellent quality, though there have been reports of shaky service.
