Secret Bar at Four Seasons Hotel Seoul Named Best Bar in Korea

It will come as no surprise to those who know of the 'secret bar' at the luxurious Four Seasons Hotel Seoul, that it is has won an award as the Best Bar in Korea, and one of the very best in Asia.

Recognised on the coveted Asia’s 50 Best Bars 2019 list, Charles H. - the official name of the bar, received the impressive award after being voted as such by an Academy of more than 200 drinks industry experts, bartenders and cocktails specialists across Asia.

Leading the highly skilled team at Charles H. is Head Bartender Keith Motsi, who joined from Four Seasons Hotel Beijing this year with a goal to successfully position the bar as one of the best destinations in the cocktail industry.

“We are thrilled to be recognised as the Best Bar in Korea by Asia’s 50 Best Bars, the most anticipated ranking for bar professionals and cocktail aficionados across Asia,” said Keith Motsi. The Charles H. team have been dedicated to delivering new and exciting bar experiences for our guests and it is a great honour to have their efforts recognised in this remarkable way.”

With a nod to the prohibition-era speakeasies of New York, Charles H. at Four Seasons Hotel Seoul was designed by AvroKo, and opened its doors in October 2015. 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.

The bar is accessed through a secret and nondescript doorway and offers a selection of cocktails inspired by the travel and writings of Charles H. Baker.
