Sipboon Il

Bar in Myeong-dong & Jung-gu

This wine bar takes its vino seriously – there's a sign at the entrance that says 'No soju served here'. The cosy chic interior makes an unexpected contrast to the bar's industrial exterior, and the price of wines is incredibly reasonable by Seoul standards. There's a food menu; the jjaphagetti (instant black bean noodles) are a popular choice. It's closed every other Sunday.

The bar's name, which means 'one tenth' in Korean, refers to the fact that it's owned by ten friends who split the profits ten ways.
