With a nod to the Prohibition-era speakeasies of New York, Charles H. at Four Seasons Hotel Seoul opened its doors in October 2015, introducing a thoroughly modern drinking experience inspired by the travels and writings of global cocktail authority and legendary bon vivant Charles H. Baker. The beverage menu boasts a carefully edited and crafted selection of cocktails from classic to contemporary libations using only high quality products and artisanal spirits. Designed by AvroKo, the décor of the bar is inspired by the intricate subterranean spaces of 1920s and 1930s New York, and incorporates palette and details inspired by the Korean traditional royal dress and modern Korean metalwork to create a sense of exoticism, glamour and romance previously unseen in Seoul’s speakeasy scene.
