Rooftop KLOUD

Gangnam has always been viewed as a pricey district with lots to see and do. Yet, amidst its numerous high-rise buildings and luxury brand shops, Rooftop KLOUD still stands out. Feast your eyes on a bird’s-eye view of the city, all while enjoying one of their speciality drinks.

Rooftop KLOUD offers a breathtaking vantage view of Seoul’s skyline, with tables lined along the terrace’s floor-to-ceiling glass windows. Located amidst shorter buildings, customers are able to catch a breathtaking city view from the heart of Gangnam. 

This is a great spot to watch the sunset and it is also especially pretty at night when the city lights set the dark sky aglow.

Extensive menu & artisan cocktails

Boasting a huge bar that spans across the side of nearly the entire restaurant, you can rest assured that there are tons of different mixology creations to choose from. This includes artisanal cocktails, champagnes, wines, and handmade craft beers by local microbreweries.

The bar’s decor is reminiscent of speakeasy bars in New York. The outdoor terrace screens old Western films via its black and white movie projector throughout the night. With the soft ambient lighting and posh furniture, it is no wonder that Rooftop KLOUD gives off the Roaring Twenties’ vibes.
