Show me the way to the next whisky bar

Show me the way to the next whisky bar

A bartender takes an order from a customer in Vault +82, one of the most popular bars specializing in single-malt whisky in Seoul. By Park Sang-moon

With the rise of single-malt whisky in Seoul comes another trend: the speakeasy. While the abundance of bars and restaurants in the city suggests that using a distinct sign to stand out is crucial to attract patrons, certain establishments are going without, relying on a sense of intrigue and word of mouth to lure people in. These bars tend to focus on single-malt whisky, a more expensive type of alcohol made with malted grains from one distillery. The high-end establishments pride themselves on stocking a variety of brands that cater to customers” needs, such as whiskies that come from prestigious distilleries in Scotland or Japan and those that have matured for more than two decades.The retro lounges, which are influenced by the secretive underground spots that sprouted up in the 1920s during prohibition in the United States, are currently the pinnacle of Seoul”s bar scene. In keeping with the atmosphere of exclusivity the venues tend to promote, the bars often take cues from gentlemen”s clubs by offering additional services such as shoe or jacket cleaning.A large number of these speakeasies began to proliferate in the Yongsan area, central Seoul, over the past couple of years. The trend then spread out to Cheongdam-dong and Apgujeong-dong before moving to the business-heavy Yeoksam-dong area in southern Seoul.Speakeasy Mortar, located in central Seoul”s Hannam-dong, doesn”t even keep its door unlocked. When a patron comes knocking, a doorman opens a small window at eye level to check who”s there. The Booze, another single-malt lounge in the area, misleads potential patrons with a door that opens to a storage area right next to the bar”s actual opening. And Bar Lupin in Apgujeong distracts customers from its really dark entrance way with a life-size steel figure of detective Arsene Lupin, the character from crime novels by French writer Maurice Leblanc. “The concept of going somewhere hidden, going somewhere not known to the public, attracts more customers looking for a new experience”, said a bartender at The Booze. “And the fun of discovering the endless whisky options keeps them coming back”.Not a single-malt aficionado? No need to worry: these speakeasies have fully trained bartenders who are happy to suggest what to drink. Half the fun is sitting at the bar and learning more about the whiskies on offer. The smaller a bar is, the more intimate a relationship a customer tends to build with the bartender, and the more information you share with the staff, the better. Workers at these speakeasies tend to be so knowledgeable about the whiskies on offer that they can recommend brands based not only on customers” food and drink preferences, but on their current mood. ...
