Charles H

50Best Accolades

The outstanding Charles H, on the lower level of Seoul’s Four Seasons hotel, pays tribute to early 20th century writer and bon vivant Charles H Baker Jr, author of essential cocktail book, The Gentleman's Companion. Helmed by the ever-dapper Keith Motsi, the bar improves year on year under his talented bar-stewardship. Taking a cue from the Victorian Era, Charles H weaves together the dark, subterranean feel of New York Prohibition-era speakeasies with a sense of luxury and glamour via etched brass tabletops and an expansive 7m tapestry modelled after braided hairstyles from Korea’s Imperial family. Charles H is The Best Bar in Korea 2020, sponsored by Mancino Vermouth.
